Google now accepting pre-orders for books on the Play Store

You can now pre-order books on the Play Store. There is already a very good selection available, and you will not be charged until the book is available.
November 27, 2012

Keeping up with Amazon and the Apple’s iBookstore, Google now allows you to pre-order books in the Play Store. This update follows another recent Play Store change related to app reviews, which are now linked to your Google+ account.

If you go to the Play Store and click on Books, one of the featured stories will have the heading “New And Coming Soon” which has a list of the all the books available for pre-order.

Standard pre-ordering policies apply, which means that you will get charged only once the book is available and you can cancel your order at any time. There is already a wide range of books available, including titles by Tom Clancy, Sebastian Faulks and Sara Shepard.

It is great that Google has decided to implement this system even if books aren’t available yet. Once you order a book you are reserved a place in the queue without actually paying anything at the time. Even though this method does postpone the payment, it does take the thought off your mind. To see what books are available for pre-order right now, hit up the source link below. Your experience should be pretty seamless, but let us know if you encounter any hiccups.
