 The book business hasn't changed very much in the past 500 years. Someone writes a book. Someone publishes it. And you buy it and carry it around until you're done reading it. Then if you're a book lover, you repeat this process for lots, and lots, and lots of books. But in the past ten years, a very big change has happened. Books have gone digital. Today, there are all kinds of ebook standards, each with their own dedicated1 e-reader and their specific place to buy ebooks, and all lacking one thing: choice. 

 
 
 
The idea behind Google eBooks is to truly set your reading free from all these limitations. Google eBooks store your library safely in the digital file, which means you get to shop for all your favorite books whatever you want and read them wherever you go, using pretty much any device with an Internet connection. 
 
 
 
Let's say you wake up one morning and decide to read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo2. You might begin the story at home on your laptop over coffee and a pastry3. You'd really be getting hooked on your tablet on the train to work. And by noon you'll be racing4 through chapters on your smartphone when you head out to grab some lunch. Now, imagine if you're carrying around not just one book, but a lot of books, like, maybe a couple million of them. With Google eBooks syncing all your books with your devices isn't just simple, it's automatic. You can take a break in the park with some Stevenson, reference your favorite French cookbook at the supermarket, get lots with Grisham on your cross-town bus trip. Whenever you open one of your books, we'll pick up right where you left off. 
 
 
 
With millions of books to choose from in every imaginable category, finding what you want to read on Google eBooks is easy. You can check out the New York Times bestseller list, browse5 the Google eBooks store, and find recommended titles or free ebooks, discover up and coming authors, or buy ebooks from a growing number of independent booksellers and retail6 partners. 
 
 
 
Google eBooks is all about choice from what you want to read, where you want to shop, to how you want to read. That's all you books in one place, no matter where you go. That's truly reading unbound. Start exploring Google eBooks at books.google.com/ebooks.
