Simon & Schuster to Begin Delivering Content to Mobile Phones

Simon & Schuster is partnering with Macmillan Publishing Solutions to deliver over 500 Simon & Schuster books to any “web-enabled mobile phone.” Titles will include “The Secret”, Star Trek books, Nancy Drew mysteries and Ernest Hemingway stories. The plan is for all S&S ebooks to be available through the service.

My suggestion? Get your YA books on the service. I don’t know a kid beyond the age of 12 in my neighborhood that doesn’t have a web enabled phone. As for me, I don’t even know how to access this Global Reader platform so I hope that the S&S promotions give us some idea of how to connect to S&S.

    Hey Jane, thats an interesting observation… I don’t know if its healthy for kids to read books on their phones, but I guess this way they will read more than before. I checked out the Global Reader service and found it to be very easy to use. just go to on your phone.

    Hope they keep adding more books to the library. It sure is convinient when commuting but I still think nothing beats the feel of a good book in my hands!
