Unlimited access to more than 200,000 books for $9.95 a month: That's the offer at Oyster, an ebook subscription service. Oyster currently is available only for digital devices running Apple iOS 7. If you use such a device, you get a well-designed ebook reading experience. Oyster partners directly with publishers and offers recent releases, award winners, and best-sellers as part of its large lending library, which covers most genres, including business books, biographies, science fiction, and children's titles. Founded in New York, Oyster launched its Web site with about 100,000 books for iPhones in September 2013. The service became available on iPads about 6 weeks later. The site currently offers new users a free 30-day trial.
