Internet Archive Launches Ebook "Library"

The Internet Archive, home of the Wayback Machine, has launched BookServer, which
allows a wide network of publishers, booksellers, libraries, and even authors to make their catalogs of books available directly to readers through their laptops, phones, netbooks, or dedicated reading devices. BookServer facilitates pay transactions, borrowing books from libraries, and downloading free, publicly accessible books.
Texts are formatted in open book formats for read on a wide range of devices, from Kindles to laptops, game consoles to smartphones.

The keyword search engine retrieves items by author, title, word, or phrase. A search for "law" returned 34,282 hits.
