Flipkart is running an ebook sale. 1,00,000 books are available for Rs. 99 or less. Flipkart ebooks are DRM protected. You can read them only in their Android / iOS app (in your smartphone or tablet) or in their web browser app. Reading in web browser app can be cumbersome. You cannot transfer these ebooks to other apps like Kindle. You can read the books in up to 5 devices using the same Flipkart login.
You need a Flipkart account to purchase the books. You can pay by credit car or net banking. You can purchase only from an Indian IP address. I tried sharing the account info to my friend outside India and he had trouble accessing the purchased books.
Tips for purchasing:
* Not all good books are visible in their featured list. If you have a wishlist search for them.
* Books from same author are available for different price. Search for all books of your favourite authors.
* The sale price is being increased everyday. So, rush to buy if you find a good one.
* Do not load all the books you see to your cart. Is it a one time read? Can you find the book in your local library? Is it worth having as a collection? Will you read the book immediately or will it sleep in your book shelf for ever? Think on these lines and checkout.

what about reading in ubuntu or online?
You can read in your web browser offline and online in any OS. But, the reading experience will be best in tablets only. If you are used to reading long books in browser or smart phones, you can go ahead.
