The Internet Achive's Open Library has over 40 million full-text, searchable, electronic editions of books. The full-text search for all 4+ million books has just been made available. This includes not just books that have entered the public domain but also close to half a million others. Though the press release is weak on technical details, exploring the advanced search interface quickly make clear which capabilities are available.

    The story says over 40 million books. And it says 4+ million. Like saying I have over 10 billion dollars. And I have 1+ billion dollars. It's a very special way to talk. And it's a funny way to talk.

      And if there were nearly 10 editions of the average book? You seem to have overlooked the important word that makes the statement make sense. Very fitting.
