Google is set to launch its own online e-book store in 2010.
Google Editions books will not be tied to a specific device, unlike rival e-book company Amazon.
The Amazon Kindle is linked to books from the company's own store and similarly with Apple's iBookstore.
"It is a different approach to what most readers today have and the vision is to be able to access books in a device agnostic way," said Google spokesperson Gabriel Sticker.
