Oyster, the eBook subscription service that has been referred to as “the Netflix of eBooks,” now has 500,000 eBooks in its lending library.
New titles include: How Music Works by David Byrne, Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver, Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon, The Cider House Rules by John Irving and It Chooses You by Miranda July.
This is huge growth for the company’s catalog which counted only about 100,000 titles a few months back. The company raised $14 million in funding back in January and has since been expanding its publisher partnerships. The service launched kids books in February.
The service allows users access to its entire collection of books for a $9.95 a month subscription fee.
