Oyster is great. Also check out Epic (http://www.getepic.com). It's like Oyster but for kids. http://www.producthunt.com/posts... And of course, the recent Amazon announcement - unlimited Kindle (http://www.producthunt.com/posts...)

I'm a huge fan of this product and have been wanting a web client for months. I talked about Oyster on the PH Podcast with Ryan a few weeks back - they keep making it better. High five, Oyster folks.

I used Oyster during the pre-release beta but found the catalog limited. I should give it another chance now. I'm curious how they're going to compete against the recently launched, Amazon Unlimited. Btw, here's a link to the podcast @connor mentioned.

@rrhoover They have 500,000 books now. The app is beautiful.

As a heavy reader, I love the idea of this product. Like Ryan though, I left early on because the selection was too small. I'd love to see a way to search their current collection before rejoining - 500k books sounds like a lot, but I care more about the quality than the quantity (for reference, 200k+ books were published in the US in 2011).

@natedesmond You can search without being logged in. https://www.oysterbooks.com/sear... There's a link at the top-left of their landing page (https://oysterbooks.com) to search.

I'm actually finding more titles on Oyster that I'm interested in than Kindle Unlimited. The web reader is a huge win because reading books on an iPhone means you have to do a TON of scrolling.
