Google Releases Print Edition

By The Specious Report

Mountain View, CA - Have a house full of empty bookshelves? Then you might consider getting the complete Google in hardcover.

Google Print EditionThe world's biggest search engine is now the world's biggest set of reference books.

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.
