The Google e-bookstore is finally open.
After years of planning and months of delays, the search giant Google started its e-book venture on Monday, creating a potentially robust competitor in the digital book market to Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple.
Google executives described the e-bookstore as an "open ecosystem" that will offer more than three million books, including hundreds of thousands for sale and millions free.
