BitLit Partners With HarperCollins To Make Buying Digital Versions Of Books You Already Own Easier

The HarperCollins pilot is going to bear watching. If (and it’s a really big if) BitLit pulls it off and the program is expanded it is the first real challenge Amazon and iBooks may face. From the sounds of things, it will be a very good thing for readers. Unspoken is the effect it will have on authors who are increasing pressured to signing away all or most of their rights to publishers already anyway. Sad that what’s good for authors isn’t the same as what’s good for readers more often. Does anyone have a title available through BitLit or Amazon’s MatchBook service?
