Google Play Books is Now Renting YA Titles from Harper Teen
eBook retailers like Amazon have been renting ebooks since forever, but until this week they only rented digital textbooks.
Dystopian futures, forbidden loves, super-powered aliens, and dark secrets. Whatever world you love to get lost in, we make it easy with a special 99¢ rentals offer on great reads now through December 22nd. Explore top sellers, movie and TV tie-ins, and first in series with 24-hour rentals on the Best of Harper Young Adult. The rental period begins at the time of purchase, and can be accessed in your library for the next 24-hours, so dive in and discover your next favorite.
The sale includes 29 titles, and runs through the 22nd.
Just so you know, Google is still selling the ebooks while offering them for rent. Clicking the buy button brings up a new menu which offers both the sale and rental price:
In some cases the rental isn’t worth it; some titles, including Peaches, are renting for a buck and selling for $5.
But even with the more expensive titles,does this sale really represent a good value?
Aren’t the books a reader is mostly to finish in a day also the books they will most likely want to read again and again?
I know that is true for me; how about you?
Thanks, Fbone, for the tip!
