Random House Releases Classics in E-Book Format
Officials of the Modern Library, a Random House imprint, electronically released more than 100 works of classic literature from their bound book backlist in November. The backlist includes works from many cherished authors, including Jane Austen, James Joyce, Charles Dickens, Marcel Proust, Henry James and Willa Cather. Random House officials are working with Reciprocal, a DRM and e-commerce service provider, on the project. The e-book editions feature introductions by familiar writers, updated text and other highlights distinguishing the titles from their earlier printed versions. Titles are available for download in Adobe PDF, Glassbook Reader PDF and Microsoft Reader LIT formats.
