Oyster, the Netflix of e-Books, is Shutting Down

(PC World) – The world of ebook subscription services lost one of its earliest proponents late Monday evening, when Oyster—the so-called “Netflix of ebooks,” which also recently opened an online book store—announced it was shutting down “over the next few months.”

The surprise announcement comes less than two years since Oyster’s debut in September 2013. The company has yet to announce an official sunset date meaning it’s not clear how long Oyster subscribers have left on the service.

With Oyster gone, that leaves Scribd ($9 per month) and Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited($10 per month) as the two major “all you can eat” subscription options for insatiable readers.
