Google eBooks arrive Down Under
 

 

Google eBooks has landed in Australia and offers hundreds of thousands of titles including plenty of bestsellers and millions of free eBooks. It's easy to find great Australian authors too like Kate Grenville, Thomas Keneally, Geraldine Brooks and Christos Tsiolkas.

You can choose titles from hundreds of local publisher partners not to mention the many thousands of international publishers Google works with around the world. In addition, Google eBooks is working with local booksellers in Australia, including Booktopia and Dymocks who are selling eBooks today, with QBD The Bookshop and The Co-op Bookshop coming soon.

eBooks are offered for almost any device, including your PC or netbook, Android and Apple Smartphone or tablet, or pretty much any eReader.

With the Australian launch, the Google eBooks affiliate programme is opening in Australia, Canada and the UK. The affiliate programme allows retailers, bloggers, book publishers and other website owners to earn commissions when they refer their users to Google eBooks. To learn more, visit Google eBooks Affiliate Integration Help Centre page.

For avid readers you can set up a Google Alert for books and receive email notices when new books that match your interests become available.

To create an alert for books, go to Google Alerts, type in the keywords you are interested in about a book, (whether it’s title, author name, or topic) and choose “Books” from the Type drop-down button, and create. You can also preview the email you'll be sent on the right side panel. Once you create the alert, you will automatically begin receiving notification emails about new, recently published books in Google Books.
