  • 4. Google deal brings classic books to Sony Reader March 19, 2009 Sony's e-book reader is about to get a little help from Jane Austen in its battle with the Kindle. Sony announced a partnership with Google that will bring a half-million classic books to the Sony Reader Digital Book. Users will now be able to access the free book downloads through Sony's eBook Store. For years, Google has scanned books and converted them to digital format--at least in part--for its Google Book Search project. For now, Google is providing books to Sony whose copyrights have expired, which means most of the new additions to the Sony Reader will have been published before 1923, according to The New York Times.
