oysterToday, subscription service Oyster added a few new publishers. According to the release, they added Andrews McMeel, Globe Pequot Press, and New Word City.

You know what’s been a funny effect of subscription services, at least for me? I actually pay attention to publishers now, where I used to never think about them. When I see a book I want to read, I check the publisher to see if it’s one of the ones available in my service (which happens to be Scribd).

I’m not (yet) familiar with the ones Oyster just added, but I’ll be checking them out. Just because I’m using another service now doesn’t mean I won’t consider changing, especially once Oyster has an Android version. I know they are working on one because I stumbled across this site where you can sigh up to be notified when the service will be available on Android The only tricky part of signing up to be notified? They ask which version of Android you’re running. I’m running two different versions, but I picked KitKat since it’s the one I’m more likely to use while reading.

Anyone else excited about the new Oyster choices?
