the public library meets netflix in oyster’s awesome new app.

by liza darwin

Nothing can replace, you know, actually holding a book in your hand. But when you can't make it to the library (or don't have any more space on the bookshelf), Oyster's new iPad app is an amazing alternative. Earlier this week the company rolled out a program that allows unlimited book downloads for just $9.95 a month.

That's huge. Not only does this mean you have your pick of the 100,000 novels and nonfiction works that are already in the system--there's even more to come. The design is super easy on the eyes, with a blue-lit background for more comfortable reading. Oh, and did we mention it rings in at less than the price of Chinese takeout? Thanks to Oyster, book and screen don't have to be mutually exclusive.
