COOL-ER ereaders you can still download your favourite titles. And now, our
partnership with Google allows us to offer more content than anyone else, as
well as giving readers the freedom to have a look through ebooks that they
might be interested in. We’re extremely proud to be the first ebookstore
outside the US to partner with Google Books, and we hope that the
collaboration will make the appeal and accessibility of ebooks broader than
