E-book subscription startup Oyster, called the â€œNetflix for ebooksâ€ has launched on the iPad, after previously being available only for iPhone users. The service was launched earlier this month on an invite-only model, but now it has been made available for all iPad and iPhone users, according to GigaOm.
An Oyster subscription costs $9.95 a month which will grant you unlimited access to a library of more than 100,000 book titles where you could find such popular titles as Lord of the Rings, Shutter Island or Water for Elephants. At the moment Oyster has a deal with only one major publisher, HarperCollins, but they will definitely increase the amount of books in their library.
If youâ€™re not sure youâ€™re willing to pay ten dollars every month to use Oyster, you can use the 30-day free trial to see how it goes.
