Barnes and Noble Make Public Domain Titles Free on Google Book Search

Barnes and Noble will now be offering over 500,000 public domain titles with a new agreement from Google Book Search. The titles can be accessed via BarnesandNoble.com as well as B&N’s reading applications.

B&N recently announced a new eBookstore as well as new mobile reader applications for the iPhone and Blackberry.

This isn’t the first time Google Book Search has reached such an agreement. Back in the spring, they reached a similar agreement with Sony for their eReader.
