If you spend time on the mobile web, you know there’s certainly no shortage of content already available on our phones. What if you’re on the run and get a hankering for some classic literature though? Enter the just released Google Book Search Mobile at books.google.com/m.
It’s a very handy new version of the site that lets you search through and read in full, 1.5 million books on your phone’s browser. Regular Google Book Search users know that these books are all scanned in as images, but for the new mobile version Google has used Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to grab the text on the pages. The whole system works quite well.
