Nothing much happening this week, so I thought I’d share a little information I stumbled across while scanning Twitter one day…
After all, I could hardly resist the accompanying quote:
- “The Netflix for books is here, it’s mobile and it makes Amazon look old.”
That is, apparently, the idea behind the new book service called “OYSTER”.
For $9.95 a month you can call up and download as many of their 200,000 featured e-books as you please. They seem to be big on best-sellers and what’s hot, but at that many titles I’m sure they have plenty of classics and series.
I’m not sure the service would be for me. I don’t currently own the I-pad or Smartphone accessories for reading. And I tend to read very slowly, especially if it’s something I’m really enjoying and savoring. I wouldn’t get through many in a month, lol. But I can certainly see its value. Since I got my Kindle I’ve spent more time at the library than before, hunting down available downloads.
So if you’re a voracious reader, this may be just the thing for that huge appetite.
