Google has introduced the ability to pre-order ebooks via the Google Play Books service. They have a new dedicated page that will allow you to see what new titles are available to order in advance and pull the trigger on the purchase. When the new book is available, it will automatically be downloaded to your Google Account and is distributed to your phone, tablet, or other devices. Right now there are only 45 titles available to pre-order, though more should be available as this new initiative gains traction.
