Google Editions at Porter Square Book

Starting today, Porter Square Books will be offering Google Editions Ebooks along with our other Ebooks. A Google Ebook is a cloud-based digital book that readers will have access to from almost any device, regardless of where they made their purchase. For example, you can buy a Google Ebook from Porter Square Books on your lunch break at work, read it on your smart phone on the train, and on your home computer when you get there. The Google Ebook will keep your place and will even reformat the Ebook for you so it matches the device that you’re using. But what might be the most exciting is that Google Ebooks will work on the iPad. There is an app coming soon, but for now, simply use your browser to purchase and read Google Ebooks on your iPad.

Google Ebooks are also a great opportunity if you’re not sure you want to do any digital reading. Because you don’t have to purchase any kind of hardware or even download any kind of software you can just give it a try and see if you like it.

To purchase a Google Ebook from us, just search for the book as normal. At the top of the search results will be a number of tabs, “Books,” “Google eBooks,” and “Other eBooks.” Just click on the “Google eBooks” tab and you’ll be taken to the results. Also, every book record will have a list of “Related Editions” of the title. If there is an ebook edition, there will be a link to it in that list. Just click on that link. Click here for a step-by-step explanation of purchasing a Google eBook. There are hundreds of thousands of Ebooks available on our website, from new releases, to bestsellers, to older classics and that list is always growing. For example, you might not be able to get a physical copy of the Autobiography of Mark Twain vol 1 before the holidays, but you can have a Google eBook for it right now.
