Great news if you like to read: earlier this month Cupertino-based software developer Apple announced that it added 17,000 ebooks to its iBookstore. The 17k ebooks represent the full catalog of Random House Inc, the largest trade book publisher in the good old US of A. Random House is the last of the six major trade publishers to add its catalog to Apple’s iBook Store.

eBooks from all six major trade publishers and thousands of independent publishers are now available in the iBookstore. eBooks from more than 2,500 publishers, and grouped in more than 20 categories (like Mysteries & Thrillers, Biographies & Memoirs, Cookbooks, Children’s & Teen, Humor, Romance, Business and Travel), are now available in Apple’s iBookstore, which is part of the free iBooks app.


Random House’s catalog includes big – or at least popular – names such as Dan Brown, Stieg Larsson, Cormac McCarthy, Lee Child, John Grisham, Danielle Steel, and Laura Hillenbrand. There are of course numerous other popular authors and their works in the catalog.

Speaking of works, here are some of the titles you can find in the catalog: Lisa Gardner’s “Love You More,” Suze Orman’s “The Money Class” and Jean Auel’s “The Land of Painted Caves.” All these titles can be (pre)ordered from the iBookstore.

“We are delighted that Apple’s iBookstore now will be carrying Random House’s US ebooks for the first time,” said Markus Dohle, Random House’s Chairman and CEO. “And we look forward to bringing our 17,000 ebooks to Apple customers.”

“We’re thrilled to offer Random House on the iBookstore,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. “iBookstore customers have already downloaded more than 100 million books in less than one year, and we think they’ll love being able to choose from Random House’s incredible selection of titles to enjoy on their iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.”
