Sony launches Reader Store for eReaders

An Amazon Kindle Store rival

Sony has opened the doors to its Reader Store, an online shop dedicated to selling eBooks.

In a bid to rival Amazon's Kindle Store Sony has launched its Reader Store, also named after its eReader. The online store offers content including books and newspapers in the ePUB format.

Sony said, "Reader Store is a purpose-built eBookstore that brings UK customers a wide range of local and international eBooks, spanning best sellers, classics, new authors and more."

Users can access the Reader Store by downloading an app for PC or Mac from the website. Android device owners can also download an app from the Google Play Store. Direct access is available from Sony's Reader.
 
Sony said the Reader Store has an uncluttered design for 'effortless' search and offers inspiration via the Features Titles and New Arrivals categories.

The Reader Store has 'thousands' of eBooks available, some of which are free to download. Sony told us that number of titles will continuously increase as more publishers are brought on board over the coming months.
