Finally! Google Starts Selling Books

Found a very interesting article today about how the whole Google Books project (formally Google Print) is going to shape up in the near future. Apparently, Google plans to offer authors who submitted their books to the Google Books project an option to let readers purchase their whole book, letting the authors set the price themselves. The purchased books, however, can only to be read through the users browser (in other words, customers won't be able to save a local copy of the book to their hard disk or even print it out) and will most likely use the soon-to-be-introduced Google Payments system to facilitate the transactions.
