Oyster : Will it change the way you read ?

A newly launched app, Oyster aims to become to the Netflix/Spotify of books. With a fixed monthly charge of $9.95, users have access to over 100,000 titles to read. Add to that the social element which allows you to share what you’re reading with your friends. The Oyster team also guarantees an improved typography making it easier to read from your mobile devices.

The app is currently on invitation basis only. You can go to http://www.oysterbooks.com to register for an invite or simply learn more about the app. Couple of catches , though for now :

1. It’s only for the iPhone or iPod Touch (an iPad version is expected this fall). Other device users need to wait a bit.

2. It’s only available in the United States.
