The Japanese Sony Reader Store Now Supports Subscriptions

The The Japanese Sony Reader Store Now Supports Subscriptions eBookstore North American branch of the Sony Reader Store may have gone to the server in the sky last week, but the electronics giant is still investing in their operations elsewhere.

The Japanese tech blog ITMedia is reporting that the Sony Reader Store in Japan now supports subscriptions and automatic delivery. Around 200 titles, including Dime, Bungei, and Men's Club, can now be delivered automatically to subscribers. Previously, readers had to acquire individual issues as they were released.

This feature will also soon be available on the PS Vita. Sony's handheld gaming device has had a manga app since September 2012, with the digital comics delivered in Epub3.  Now readers will be able to get regular deliveries of their favorite titles.

Sony is holding a sale to celebrate the new feature. The sale covers backlist issues of a number of magazines, and Sony is also giving away free copies of ebooks which teach basic English.
