iPhone users can access over 100,000 e-books from a limited set of publishers for a flat monthly fee.

Oyster, the latest startup to offer subscription access to books much the way Netflix does for movies, launched its app for the iPhone today. Subscribers can browse more than 100,000 e-book titles for $9.95 a month, although most of the big publishers aren't participating and the service offers few new bestsellers. The e-books startup is currently invite-only.
