Google launches new ebook store

Google, the new worldwide religion replacing God...

Sorry, Google, the internet giant, has today launched its long awaited eBook store at http://books.google.com/ebooks, through which it will be possible to purchase copies of books and to source many millions of others for free. Books can be read on many different platforms, including Amazon's Kindle, Google's Android and others utilising Adobe's ebook platform. On a quick search of Scotland all sorts of free material emerged, such as "Documents and records illustrating the history of Scotland, and the transactions between the crowns of Scotland and England, preserved in the treasury of Her Majesty's Exchequer", "Memoirs of the Church of Scotland" and many other fascinaing texts. A little light bedtime reading!
