Within just six months of launching, Google has added over one million titles to its e-book store, Google eBooks, putting its total number of free e-books in excess of 3 million. "Free ebooks aren’t the only thing on the rise," said Google product manager Abe Murray. "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."
Readers are voraciously consuming free e-books on line via the Google Books Web Reader, on mobile devices via free applications and on compatible e-readers, said Google.
Downloads of the company’s Google Books apps for iOS, Android and Chrome have exceeded 2.5 million since December.
In May online retailer Amazon announced that sales of digital books for its Kindle e-reader had surpassed sales of print books on its websites.
Google will be sharing additional facts and figures about its e-book store at BookExpo America on May 24-26.
