  • 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.
