Your bookshop — it’s Google

Fascinating news: Google is becoming, in essence, a digital bookshop.

Google Signs a Deal to e-Publish Out-of-Print Books – NYTimes.com reports:

“Last week, American authors and publishers reached an agreement with Google to settle lawsuits over Google’s Book Search program, which scans millions of books and makes their contents available on the Internet. The deal lets Google sell electronic versions of copyrighted works that have gone out of print.”

It will be interesting to see where this initiative is a decade from today. Perhaps books will never go out of print; they’ll always be available.
