Google has scanned in millions of Books creating a huge collection of free and for-sale eBooks. Due the expanded list of free available eBooks, likely the largest available anywhere. Note, however, these are often not proofed and are not the best quality. Typically they license out their free eBooks collection to other vendors as a way to get people to visit their stores.

Some Google books use Adobe DRM but the free ones are usually DRM-free as well. The currently available for-sale books are obtained from publishers just like most other stores do. However, they also have some out of print but still in copyright books available which other stores typically do not.
