Build up your library... scanning...?

Mon 8 June 2009 09:05, Bas van den Beld

Ok, it's a small feature that Google has added to their "My Library"-functionality in Google Books, but somehow people on Twitter seemed to like it. And to be honest, it is fun and can be helpfull.

What is it? In this video below Matt Cutts shows us how we can now add books to our library using a barcode scanner instead of typing in all the isbn numbers. Very usefull, yes. If you own a scanner/ According to Matt the scanner is not expensive, only 70 dollars. Great, let me get one. But for what? Just for scanning the books? I don't know how many people will buy one just for this purpose. Is this usefull or just a feature which is there but not important? What do you think?

  • I think, it would be better to buy the scanner and use it immediately to scan all books whatever you want, then just resale it for little less price. :)
