The Case for Books: Past, Present, and Future - Robert Darnton I enjoyed this one! Since I love books so much, I love reading books about books! It was interesting to read about the Google books debate and their ambitious project to put all books online for free. I have been volunteering for quite some time at pgdp, proofreading books for Project Gutenberg. Of course, they are old books that have long since gone out of copyright. I would hate to see all books become electronic in the future, as I definitely prefer the real thing, a codex, as they call it.

Learned about sites such as: The Open Content Alliance, Open Knowledge Commons, Open Courseware and The Internet Archive.

Would definitely recommend this one!
