In an earlier post (Pricing Improvements, and What’s Next!), we responded to a lot of the early feedback we were getting about improving our pricing. In that post, we talked about how we were going about pricing improvements. Well, just in case you were wondering, we haven’t stopped working on it.

How does $9.99 sound? It has a good ring to it, doesn’t it? We thought so too, and that’s one of many reasons that all New York Timesbestsellers ( are now available on Shortcovers for less than ten bucks ($11.99 in Canada)!

We have also heard “More books! More books,” so we have been working our butts off to sign major publishers who are producing the content you want. Shortcovers features eBooks from the world’s top publishers, including Random House, Simon and Schuster, Harper Collins, Hachette, Wiley and Penguin. These six publishers alone represent 80% of titles the New York Times’ bestseller list! Did I mention best sellers are only $9.99?

When it comes to e-reading, we want you to be able to access the book of your choice wherever and whenever you want.

In case you are concerned that we’re going to rest on our laurels now that we have all the big dogs, worry not. We are in the process of adding 200 new publishers and I can guarantee there is no rest in sight. If there is something you want to read that we don’t currently have, I’d love to know what it is.

Happy e-Reading!
