Three Ebook Stores That Are Getting It Right

Ebook stores
allow avid readers to make the most of their e-readers. Hugely more convenient than traditional bookstores, these electronic stores have more books for better prices. The best ones have an enormous variety of e-books and provide easy navigation for their customers. You can get free ebooks, the latest bestsellers, or more obscure titles.

You'll find books for black and white and colour ereader models too. With many ereaders you are not locked in to that specific manufacturers ebook store, so the choice of reading material is vast.

Three of the most popular e-book stores include the Amazon Kindle store, Barnes & Noble e-books, and the Sony Reader store.
All three of these e-book stores ranked highly in ease of navigation and a straightforward search by subject feature. These qualities enable customers to get to their desired purchases quickly and efficiently.

A good search facility ultimately results in more time reading and less time searching through thousands of irrelevant book titles. Many of us will have experienced the annoyance of search results that have nothing to do with the search topic. This inconvenience is a waste of time and more of a frustration than anything else. For a more precise and time-efficient shopping experience, visit Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Sony e-book stores instead. A quick search ensures that readers find the books they want without any fuss or problem.

Additionally, the Sony e-store allows customers to search according to price, which is a great feature for those on a budget. Customers watching their wallet can instantly pull up a list of e-books within their price point for immediate access to affordable reads. On the other hand, the Barnes & Noble e-book store enables readers to search by series. This feature helps individuals confirm that they have read all the books in a series and purchase any missing pieces of the collection.

The Amazon Kindle ebook store helps readers get their hands on the latest new titles with a flat rate of just $9.99 for new releases and bestsellers. Barnes & Noble offers similar deals with most of their new titles averaging less than $9.99. The Sony e-book store rounds out the three by providing select discounts and bundle pricing. These special deals help customers get more for their money’s worth - a quality anyone can appreciate and one that keeps customers coming back for more.

Another great benefit offered by Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble e-stores involves free book downloads. Free is always better, and these two stores make a number of e-books available to thrilled customers at absolutely no cost. This is a great budget-friendly way for customers to build and add to their personal e-reader libraries.

Amazon's Kindle ebook store is not limited to Kindle readers only and comes gives the bonus benefit of being available for almost any ereader device. The bookstore holds over a million books and magazines and that's an ever increasing number. The Kindle store offers a huge range of the latest releases and bestsellers, and you can expect more with the release late in 2011 of the Kindle colour.

These three e-book stores have helped reading to reenter the spotlight as a positive form of entertainment. With their variety of options, user-friendliness, and affordable prices, these three e-stores have earned the TopTenREVIEWS gold, silver, and bronze awards respectively. These titles are well deserved as the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, and Sony ebook stores are pleasing customers the world wide.
