Lulu.com, more recently focused on helping authors publish their own ebooks, is now making a decided push into the ebook rental market.
Bob Young, head dishwasher at Lulu.com, states the following:
“Beginning today, you will find more than 700,000 new titles in the Lulu Marketplace, titles as diverse as Harlan Coben’s Caught from the list of New York Times bestsellers to Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. This follows the addition of more than 200,000 traditionally published eBooks that we added in November. In the coming weeks, we’ll add more content through additional partnerships as we make Lulu.com the world’s premier destination for published knowledge, ideas and expression. In effect, we are creating the world’s biggest bookstore.”
They are also bolstering their search functionality and improving their publishing platform, though if you read the comments they are obviously still working out some kinks.
