this is the trend
This week Barnes and Noble has launched its eBook site, offering 700,000 titles at start. While Amazon and its Kindle continue to struggle, mostly because of proprietary format issues, B&N will allow its books to be read on the industry standard ePub format. The ePub format works on a variety of devices, from your iPhone to laptop computer to third party eBooks–not, however, the Kindle or the Sony eReader device, neither of which follow the industry standard.
