What Does Google Want Us to Do With All These Free PDF eBooks?

Richard Crocker

If you haven't heard yet, Google has just announced that a bunch of the books it has been scanning for its Google Books Library Program are now available for free download as PDFs. There's no doubt Google needs to be applauded for the idea, but the execution (i.e. the books they've produced) could definitely do with some work. The PDF books are difficult to download, large in size, of such low resolution they're difficult to read, cannot be searched, and do not allow the user to copy text from them. It's left me wondering what Google expects people to do with the books.
