The new Browse Inside service will allow users to view the first 10 pages of the first two chapters of upcoming publications. After reading the pages, users will be given the option of pre-ordering the book.
Browse Inside currently offers 14 titles from HarperCollins and its subsidiary publishing houses.
The books are all slated for release in August and September, and include Ray Bradbury's Now and Forever and David Mendell's Obama.
Browse Inside will also work with Flash-enabled smartphones, but will require users to access the service through a different page.
