I don’t see any information yet on how to show only results from books, so I haven’t been able to get any hits for books yet.

  1. According to the New York Times, google is setting up some kind of remote scanning operation in AA. Does anyone have more information about that facility itself? or job opportunities?

  2. You can search for books in a regular google search by including the word “books” or “books about” and then your search term.

  5. I long ago stopped reading Slashdot—has anybody posted a script to pull down all of the pages of a book from google and concatenate them into a single document?
