Toshiba to launch Book Place eBook store soon

I never bought into the eReader craze and didn'tread a digital book until I purchased an iPad and got bored one day. Then I read a bunch of books on the thing because it was much easier than schlepping down to the bookstore. The downside is that there are not many offerings in the genres that I like for the iPad.

Toshiba is set to offer its own online bookstore called the Book Place very soon. The store will be based on Bilo and offer eBook content in full color. The books will be readable in full book view or text only.

I presume full book view would be with graphics enabled and such. The service will also allow people to add text and voice notes to the pages and will translate to and from English to other languages.
