Oyster Books – Because the World is your iPhone
I guess everyone knows by now that I’m a huge fan of subscription services. I love using Netflix and Amazon Prime for my movies, I use a service for my music too. Sure, I have a Roku Player, Internet TV and everything else that lets me sift through tons on content in the blink of an eye. The more the better, but what about my e-reader? When it comes to that, I pretty much get just one book at a time…
To be honest, my e-reader is dead in a drawer somewhere, in favor of my iPod, which has exactly one book on it… until now. Check out Oyster, the new subscription service for big readers. Oyster gives you one-tap access to an endless supply of well designed books, with beautiful (customizable) typography and the ability to share your favorites with your friends, and even get recommendations. Oyster offers all this, and, unlimited access to over 100,000 books, all for under 10 bucks a month, with new titles being added all the time.
I guess some folks start a book and stick with it until its finished, but I find that sometimes, I like a little variety in my reading material. I believe that having so many options will inspire me to read even more. Oyster has a heck of a lot to offer, from Michael Crichton to J.R.R. Tolkien and everything in between, including kids books, complete with color illustrations. I’m loving it.
So, if you’re a huge reader, or you simply aspire to be one, head on over to Oysterbooks.com and sign up for your special invitation, or just get some more information. You’ll be so glad you did. Oyster is currently only available for your iPhone, and here in the United States, but an iPad version should be available to us later this Fall, no word yet on international availability. Let’s let our gadget-riddled brains relax with a few good books, shall we?
