I had heard about Google and their book scanning so I decided to check
it out. I'm not a copyright attorney so don't know if this is legal or
not. I guess in theory it is not much different from a library except
only one person can 'use' one copy of a book in a library at a time but
on google 200 people can all read the same book at the same time.
Interesting if so. For me, it'd only be hndy or checking the a
book's content, to see if I wanted to buy a copy. Nothing like thumbing
thru pages in the thinking room, or by candlelight when the power's off
- hard to do that with a computer screen. I certainly wouldn't read
omething that long from a screen - if I want to read something, unless
it's pretty short, I'll usually print it out and read it - or skip it.
I've got loads of links save, for books on-line - and haven't read a one
- because they're all on-line. I like books.
If you don't ask the right questions, the answers don't matter.
