New, 15 comments

Microsoft is reportedly planning to bring ebooks to the Windows Store. MSPoweruser reports that the new ebooks store will be integrated into the regular Windows Store alongside apps, games, music, TV shows, and movies. It appears Windows 10 users will be able to purchase books from a wide range of authors and publishers, and read them within Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft recently added EPUB support to Windows 10 as part of the Creators Update preview, and Microsoft Edge users will be able to bookmark books to create collections. Microsoft is expected to launch its ebook store as part of the Creators Update in April. The software maker is also planning to sell Windows themes in the store, as part of some additional customization and UI changes to Windows 10 with the Creators Update.
