Google Sells Jonathan Safran Foer Novel for 25-Cents

Google has combined its eBook, music, movies and apps stores into a single digital location called Google Play.

eBookNewser has more about the shift. For the next few days, Google is offering 25-cent “Play of the Day” deals on digital content–including a 25-cent eBook edition of Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.

The new storefront also includes new eBook features: “Sharing the books you love with family and friends is just a click away. With Google Play you can easily post your favorite reads to your circles on Google+, via email, or text message, right from the pages of your book, without skipping a beat.”

UPDATE: Author Andrew Shaffer added an interesting clarification: Amazon has matched Google’s temporary price on the eBook. As of this writing, Barnes & Noble and Kobo have not matched the price.
