Google eBooks has been Integrated Into Google Play from @Goodereader

Google today has overhauled their Google Android Market and metamorphosed all of its content into Google Play. The move was to make its apps, games, videos and books all fly under one singular flagship banner. Google eBooks now redirects all users to Google Play and the company says it does not change the experience, or does it?
Google Play was developed mainly because people say the App Store on their devices and thought to themselves, it just has apps. Google has slowly integrated videos, music and other content into the store and it was time for it to be changed up after its three year milestone.
Google eBooks is basically redirecting all of their old links to the new ones on Google Play. The Google eBooks retailer API will not be changing as a result of the Play launch. Books sold through Google retailer partners will still be called Google eBooks. Users who purchase Google eBooks through retailer partners will now read those books on Google Play. Google will provide verbiage for retailer partners to help inform users of this change. What if you are a retailer that sells Google Books on your website? There is no immediate change to you as a Retailer partner of Google Books. You will continue to sell Google eBooks via your website and your customers will receive and read their books the same as they have been. The only change is that your customers will be redirected to their Google Play books library to access their purchased books.
