Book.ish has announced it is putting the kibosh on ebook sales and will suspend them completely on June 30th. The company has acknowledged Readings, Fullers, Avid Reader, Mary Ryan’s, Imprints, Books for Cooks, and Gleebooks as being valued partners. Any ebooks that customers have purchased will still be available to read for the near future. Book.ish was sold to Overdrive last year, and the company will focus on its HTML5 reading technologies for the future of online digital reading.
