Google Puts Free Books on Your Mobile Phone

Wow. Point your mobile web browser to and you can read full books on your portable device. According to The Globe and Mail, Google is making 500,000 books, most from the public domain, freely available to you. And if you live in the US, the number will reach 1.5 million. The collection includes works by Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Milton and more. (You can also find many similar texts in our collection of free audio books.) I tested Google’s mobile books on the iPhone, and it looks really good. Hopefully things will work well on your mobile device as well.
