Another Boost for E-Books
Armed with new technology, a leading distributor of electronic books unveiled a service Tuesday allowing libraries to offer more than 35,000 titles that can be borrowed through the Internet and read on portable devices.
The announcement by OverDrive Inc. of Cleveland offers a much-needed boost to the nascent electronic-book industry, which has been slow to make inroads with publishers and readers.
Combined with a similar move last month by rival Fictionwise Inc. of Chatham, N.J., the offering helps solve one of the main hurdles for libraries that want to lend so-called e-books: They can't do so without specialized technology and permission from publishers.
The new services should help make strides in both of those areas, executives of the two companies said, while also whetting the public's appetite for e-books.
I am not sure these protected library ebooks (pdf?) can be read on Pocket PC yet, correct me if I am wrong.
