Library of Alexadria Update
Well, back in march I blogged about my intention to build my ebook library up to the level of the famed library of Alexandria-- 50,000 books. I'm not there yet, but I just passed 2000 ebooks*. Coincidentally this happened on the same day that Google announced it will begin selling ebooks to be read online. They have said that they don't see ebooks tied to a specific device. I hope this doesn't mean they won't be available for ereaders, because if that is the case, I think they are missing the boat. If you are a reader and you haven't tried a Sony PRS or a similar device, you should.
* During the same period, I've read 18, but my "to be read" list is really growing.
