Oyster announced on its blog today that it has signed a deal with UK-based Bloomsbury to add 1,000 titles from that publisher's catalog to Oyster's subscription ebook service.
Bloomsbury is best known as the publisher of Harry Potter, which isn't actually included in this deal (the author retained the ebook rights). But Oyster reports that other readworthy titles will be:
If you need an escape from family time, turn to Anthony Bourdain’sKitchen Confidential. If you’re in the mood for a powerful novel,Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward is an emotionally-charged National Book Award-winner that sticks with you long after you finish the last page. Or maybe you’re looking to lose yourself in another world, in which case we recommend Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (for battling 19th century magicians) and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (if teenage assassins are more your style), bothNew York Times Best Sellers.
Oyster will be featuring Bloomsbury titles in today’s Spotlight. They are available today to all subscribers of Oyster's $10 a month service.
