Google EBooks is Now Live and Ready to Use!

Alert!! Google Ebooks is now live and can be used by students, teachers, or whoever wants to use them. The best part? You don't have to pay for some books. The classics like "Pride and Prejudice" and "Great Expectations" are free and ready to read. Not sure how teachers could use all of this free material without laptops or tablet computers in class, but might be good to look at some in the computer lab and maybe encourage students to read more on their "own devices" when away from school. I am sure more books will be added in the future and in the future, if we have devices for student use, who knows....they might be reading this way in class!

UPDATE: I can't get the link to work above possibly because I am logged into my Google account. Either way, you might just google "Google books" and see what you can find. It is really neat to see how many fre books are available.
