Sony Converts eBook Store to .epub, Joins Forces With OverDrive
"Sony Reader customers will benefit from a whole new world of e-books when they find and use the download services at their public library," says David Burleigh, OverDrive's director of marketing. "We're excited to spread the word about downloads as well as our service's compatibility with one of the leading e-book reading devices on the market today."
"Because our Reader supports industry-standard formats, we can continue to surprise and delight our customers with new options for premium content," says Bob Nell, director of business development for Sony's digital reading business division. "The library is a great way to experience your perennial favorites as well as new releases and best-sellers for free."
OverDrive will train librarians on how to help patrons use the Sony Reader with their download service. SonyStyle stores around the United States also will increase outreach efforts to reach new patrons with in-store messaging about the library download services.
