You no longer need to subscribe monthly with Oyster to retrieve an eBook ? just visit its new eBookstore and buy a book of your liking 24/7. The Big Five Publishing Houses are participating in and supporting Oyster?s move to allow you to retail purchase a book of your choice on your computer tablet, Smartphone, or other mobile device without requiring a monthly subscription.
Oyster compensates participating publishing firms every time one of their books is accessed through Oyster?s eBookstore and the reader reads ?a fair portion? of the book. Publishers also are rewarded with invaluable reader data that will be key to their future marketing strategies.
