Amazon ebooks has a rival

Amazon seems to have the largest piece of the ebook market with their Kindle, immediate Kindle downloads, and extensive bookstore that people go to already. Well, now they have some competition–in Barnes & Noble. Barnes & Noble has opened an ebook store–and their ebooks are available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Blackberry, and Windows and Mac. That’s a heck of a lot of instant access for people; the reader doesn’t have to buy a Kindle, but can use what they already have, including a cell phone on the go.

To help promote this, Barnes & Noble is offering 5 classic ebooks for free (Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility; Dracula; Little Women; and The Last of the Mohicans) and one dictionary when you download their eReader software. Their eReader software allows the reader to download ebooks and samples instantly; access the ebooks from your online library any time; make bookmarks, notes, and highlight passages; read in portrait or landscape format; and customize the font and margins.

That’s got me interested already! I already have an iPod Touch…and I also, of course, have a computer. 🙂

Does it appeal to you?

Thanks to Helen Ginger at StraightFromHel for the info.
