In today’s media landscape it seems like we’re heading towards a world where everything has an equivalent to Netflix. Netflix for ice cream, Netflix for ties, Netflix for pornography. Netflix for ebooks, then, should be a no-brainer, which is why it’s weird that I’m just now hearing about Oyster.
According to its website, Oyster “offers unlimited access to over 500,000 books for $9.95 a month, with new titles added all the time,” which sounds curiously similar to what Netflix does for movies and TV shows. It’s also designed to give a good reading experience to users regardless of the kind of mobile device they’re using, which might make it worth the price even if you don’t have a fancy Kindle or anything like it yet.
You can take a look at Oyster’s website here, where you can check out their online library before you make the decision about whether it will be worth your $10 a month. Then, all you have to do is start reading.
