If you enjoy a good book or two, Google Play Books is getting some updates that you may be interested in. Some of these updates are geared toward avid readers, while others aim to get your kids hooked on books.

Google has announced that it is rolling out four updates for Play Books. Arguably, the most intriguing of the four is the creation of a YouTube channel. The company says it has uploaded “thousands” of free audiobook previews on this new channel, most of which appear to run between one to two hours.
