Until now, only our friends across the pond have been able to purchase content from Google Books. That changes today as the service finally arrives in the UK.
The usual plethora of free public domain ebooks are available, as well as as content from some of the largest publishing houses in the UK.
As with the U.S. version of the service, it's designed to be open with your content available to read on the web reader, Apple devices, e-readers from the likes of Sony and Kobo, and of course your Android devices. With the books stored remotely in the cloud, you can change device and pick up where you left off, much like Amazon's Whispersync.
Google also claims to have been working with independent retailers, to allow the sale of Google Books through other bookstores in the UK.
