READING, England, December 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Interead, makers of the COOL-ER line of ereaders and proprietor of the ebooks store, today announced that they have partnered with digital distributor OverDrive, which boasts a catalog of more than 400,000 digital titles in 42 languages, to augment their ebook inventory. With this addition, now has more than 2 million ebooks available in the UK.

Launched less than one year ago, COOLER-EBOOKS has quickly become a darling of the nascent ebook category. Offering everything from textbooks to children's titles, brand-new bestsellers to honoured classics, consumers have embraced COOLER-EBOOKS' platform-agnostic approach and elegant design.

COOLER-EBOOKS also discounts every ebook-no exceptions-by 20%, a value proposition that has met with resounding approval, particularly in these difficult economic times.

Interead Director of Marketing Phil Wood explained: The reaction to COOLER-EBOOKS has been phenomenal. We've always known that by building a store that's easy to use, not tied to any one particular device, and has a clear and transparent pricing model, we would attract readers of all types. To date, though, our growth has exceeded even our most optimistic projections, and we're thrilled to have partnered with OverDrive to expand our offering.

Designed by readers, for readers, COOLER-EBOOKS accommodates 19 document formats, the broadest range of formats on the web, including the ubiquitous EPUB and PDF. In addition to books for sale, COOLER-EBOOKS offers almost half a million free ebooks to UK consumers through a partnership with Google.
