For as long as this librarian can remember the power of a book has just been magical; that is unless it was a required dry textbook better left as a last resort if stranded on a desert island surrounded by swarms of sharks. Each room in my home (except for the bathrooms, believe it or not) houses stacks of and shelves of books to be read, kept as treasures to be read again and again or shared with others that have like interests.
Being plagued of late, literally at times, with symptoms of the latest respiratory flu bug, has found me lacking the ability to do more than sit for awhile or sleep. And so began my exploration of Google Books.
A library where the book may be found, where it can be purchased from a variety of sources or whether it is added to Your Library are reader choices. When I clicked on Find a Library it immediately took me to WorldCat. This inter-connectivity is simple amazing.
