I just saw ebooks at the Borders website

I was poking around looking for deals on the Sony PRS-900, and lo and behold...the little search dropdown has "ebooks" and "free ebooks" now!
Yay!

yeah, I bought one last week with that $25 Gift Card they sent after the $100 Sony Reader Price error. Worked fine and dandy.

At least they give a discount for the ebooks that I checked out.

Geo Restrictions

Most of the books that I checked had no synopsis unless you went to the paper book page.

Also, [some] ebooks may be excluded from all types of promotion. No reward bucks earned. From Border's website:

"The publisher does not allow this eBook to be discounted below list price in any way.

For this reason, this eBook is not eligible for any pre-order, bestseller, promotional, coupon, or other discount. It is also not eligible for the accrual or redemption of Borders Bucks through Borders Rewards."

[edit- I checked a few older titles and they dont have the disclaimer.]

Hmm, sounds like they are gearing up for Pubit, their new free-for-all (not in price, but in behavior) do-it-yourself publication system.

Or maybe they decided that since they are selling Kobo, they should sell some ebooks for people to read on them?

Wink Kobo powers Borders

Borders does have ebooks now, and they are powered by Kobo in Canada. Kobo also powers Indigo Canada ebooks. Great store, Kobo. A Good thing for Borders and Indigo.

They've been selling Sony ereaders for a long time without offering ebooks for sale. I'm not saying it was a smart thing to do but selling ereaders is not a new thing for them with the Kobo.
