Google is reporting that there are over three million free Google eBooks are now available in the U.S. (as compared to more than two million at launch).
“Free ebooks aren’t the only thing on the rise… At launch, there were just over 100 independent booksellers selling Google eBooks — now there are more than 250. And while we had just over 5,000 publishers participating when Google eBooks first hit the cloud, we now have more than 7,000 — a 40% increase in half a year. Last but not least, installs of the Google Books apps for iOS, Android and Chrome have exceeded 2.5 million since December,” Google stated.
You can read them in the free Google Books Web Reader, through a free Google Books app, or by downloading them to your favorite compatible ereader.
Google also said that this week, the company will be revealing Google eBooks facts and figures, and some of the stories behind them, at the BookExpo America and related events in New York.
