Google deal set to reincarnate digital books

Google Inc. is providing 2 million books in its digital library a chance to be reincarnated in his pocket.

As part of an agreement announced Thursday, Google's open part of its index of producer of high-speed machine that can make publishing paperback book of 300 pages in less than five minutes. The new service is recognition of the Internet search leader that not everyone wants their used books on a computer or an electronic reader, such as Amazon.com Inc. and Sony Corp.

The "Espresso Book Machine" has been around for several years already, but it figures to become a hotter commodity now that it has access to so many books scanned from some of the world's largest libraries. And On Demand Books, the Espresso's maker, potentially could get access to even more hard-to-find books if Google wins court approval of a class-action settlement giving it the right to sell out-of-print books.

"This is a watershed event for us," said Daniel Nelles, Executive Director Demand Books, while overseeing a demonstration of the Espresso Book Machine Wednesday at Google's Mountain View, California headquarters.

Basically, some of the books that Google has spent the last five years of exploration in a digital format, which returns to the origin of paper.

"It sounds like things are coming full circle," Google spokeswoman Jennie Johnson said. "It will allow people to pick up the physical copy of a book, although it can be only one or two copies of the other in every library in this country, or perhaps not even available in this country whatsoever."

The books published by The Espresso Machine will have a recommended sales price of $8 per copy, although the final decision will be left to each retailer. New York-based On Demand Books will get a $1 of each sale with another $1 going to Google, which says it will donate its commission to charities and other nonprofit causes.
