eBooks are Back!
Welcome to the relaunch of Penguin eBooks. By the end of this year we'll have thousands of titles available in the shiny new ePub format for you to buy and read on your Sony eReader, your PC or Mac and other devices soon to launch. Penguin's own eBooks area will also be opening its doors in a few weeks, but if you can't wait until then, we've got some eBooks Tasters for you to try right now.
Simply click on the title you want to read and download the file to your computer. You'll need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your computer to read the sampler on your PC or Mac.
If you'd like to read it on your eReader, connect your device and add the .ePub file to your library, more information here.
» God's Own Country

» The Way We Live Now
'A certain class of dishonesty, dishonesty magnificent in its proportions, and climbing into high places ... ' This was the new metropolitan disease Trollope set out brilliantly to expose in The Way We Live Now.

» King Dork
Tom Henderson is small, skinny and awkward, and pretty much feels like an idiot most of the time. But when he discovers his father's copy of The Catcher in the Rye, it changes his world.
» King of Swords
Miami, 1981. When Detective Max Mingus and his partner Joe are called to the scene of a death at Miami's Primate Park, it looks like another routine — if slightly bizarre — investigation. Until two things turn up: the victim's family, slaughtered; and a partly digested tarot card in the dead man's stomach. The King of Swords.
» Things I Want My Daughters to Know
'My beautiful girls. If you've read this, you'll know it contains some - not all, but some - of the things I want my daughters to know. And the greatest of these is love...'
If you have purchased a Sony Reader from Waterstones in the UK it should include the software update enabling you to read these sampler files. Simply save them to your computer and move them over to your reader where they will appear in your library. If you have a Sony PRS-505 purchased elsewhere you should check that it has the software update by visiting the Sony Reader support site here.
