Peabody, Massachusetts (September 9, 2010): Today, Ray Hendrickson, President of Christianbook.com, announced the launch of the company’s all-new eBook store. In addition to offering thousands of Christian eBooks, the company also introduced the new CBD Reader, a free reading platform which operates within the internet browser of a computer, smartphone, or iPad.
Hendrickson commented, “We are very excited to offer a deep selection of Christian eBooks, while also providing an eReading platform in the CBD Reader that gives our customers the ability to read on devices they already own. Instead of purchasing another expensive electronic device, our customers can read on their desktop and laptop computers, as well as many popular mobile devices and dedicated eReaders like the nook and Sony Reader.”
Embracing the power of HTML5, Christianbook.com delivers a new and unique reading experience through cutting edge eBook technology. Without downloading any special software application, readers can choose to access their eBooks “in the cloud” and literally begin reading with just a few quick clicks–a “godsend” to those who dread the thought of fumbling with a USB cable and syncing to an external device. Since traditional downloads are also supported, users can still choose to read on an e-ink device if they prefer–just as they would with many other eBook retailers. By eliminating many of the frustrating technology barriers facing a potential eBook purchaser, the innovative eBook store at Christianbook.com encourages newcomers to try eBooks for the first time, while still pleasing the tech-savvy eBook user as well.
Christianbook.com now features an entire store dedicated solely to eBooks. Customers can browse the extensive selection of Christian eBooks the same way they would any other product at Christianbook.com and start reading on multiple devices within seconds. Christianbook.com is encouraging users to try their eBooks, offering a handful of free eBooks in addition to free samples of every eBook the site has to offer.
In closing, Hendrickson added, “We’re thrilled to open our eBook marketplace to the millions of satisfied customers at Christianbook.com. Every day we are adding new titles to our already deep title selection – we will have the best selection of Christian eBooks available.”
