Life-Changing Books Now on Google’s “My Library”

A few weeks ago, our read­ers con­tributed to cre­at­ing a list of books that left an indeli­ble mark on their lives. You can review the orig­i­nal post here. But we fig­ured why not add them to our “My Library” page on Google, a new prod­uct that we briefly men­tioned yes­ter­day. You can access the col­lec­tion here (or get it by rss feed). And, as you’ll see, we also import­ed to the list all of our users’ com­ments on the indi­vid­ual books. Explore the list, find a great read, and pass it along to a wor­thy friend.

    Hmm, I would think at Open Cul­ture, you would at least add ver­sions of Pub­lic Domain works in Full View, rather than new­er edi­tions that are either Lim­it­ed Pre­view or Snip­pet View. (I’m look­ing at the Edgar Allan Poe, and the Mar­cus Aure­lius). I am glad to see the Dick­ens is a Full View, though.

    Good points about using the full view option for those texts. I made those changes. Thanks for the good reminder.

    This is such a good idea, why don’t we do an update every 3–4 months to get some fresh ideas and inspire each oth­er with some good lit­er­a­ture? A pity there is no sim­i­lar place to post audio books as well; some great ones com­ing out of Lib­rivox late­ly.
