For a while now digital books have been the “it” factor to save money, time (to go physically searching for the book), space, etc. BUT companies have tied that benefit to the acquisition of a reading gadget Kindles, iPad’s, etc.
Google has skipped that gadget so it seems. May be for US users that doesn’t represent much of a difference (except for the amount paid to get the little thing) but for international users that REALLY makes the difference. Not that ordering and getting the Kindle or any other thing is impossible, but it takes weeks for them to get here.
So, Google, thank you very much! You just solved half the planet’s problem on purchasing books. What’s the big deal you may ask. Well, for anyone looking for English books here or any other language aside from Spanish takes ages. Many a times you may get the classics with no problem whatsoever (Shakespeare, Jane Austen, etc) but for any other more recent favorites, there’s one word: Wait.
This new release is music to our ears. No more waiting; no more impossible queries for the thing you’re looking for. Google book store is almost here. http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/web/12/01/google.book.store.mashable/index.html?eref=rss_topstories&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+rss/cnn_topstories+(RSS:+Top+Stories)
