HarperCollins has begun selling some ebooks directly, starting with titles by C.S. Lewis. These are DRM-protected EPUB files, so if you want a Kindle version you’ll have to buy through Amazon.
On Tuesday, Scribd officially launched its new ebook subscription service, which offers all-you-can-read access for $8.99 a month. The service includes a broad partnership with ‘Big 5’ publisher HarperCollins.
