More news for e-readers: Oyster, a New York-based startup, has just launched a subscription service for digital books. For a $10 monthly fee, members have unlimited access browse and read e-books from participating publishers. Currently on board are HarperCollins, Houghton Mifflin, and some digital-specific and indie publishers. Oyster launched with just an iPhone app, though an iPad version is expected later this fall.
