Mountain View, CA - Have a house full of empty bookshelves? Then
you might consider getting the complete Google in hardcover.
The world's biggest search engine is now the world's biggest set of reference
Joining the roster of megaworks like the 2 by 1.5 meter Bhutan: A Visual
Odyssey Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom and Gary Larson's 60-pound The
Complete Far Side, Google's 36,795 volumes will be ten times larger
than the unabridged Oxford English Dictionary.
The 2,481-volume "A" set can be pre-ordered online now
and will be in bookstores later this month. Google plans to release a new
letter of the alphabet every two weeks.
The collection could be a godsend for the 40% of the population who don't
yet have Internet access, or simply a convenience for someone who doesn't
want to power up the computer every time they need to run a web-search.
