Searchable books

I cant count the number of times I had the thought of “Googling” something in a book. Either while reading, wanting to go back to something or more often when thinking back on something I read but not being sure in which book it was or remembering which book but not where specifically.

Amazon seems to be on the way with exactly that! If all goes according to (not yet announced) plan we should soon be able to search through some of the books online and read excerpts. It will be only in non-fiction books which puts a big dent in my dream but still good news. I’m looking forward to trying that out.
