Open Library

I thought this would be of interest to you all, as we obviously all share a love of books.

It crossed my virtual desk this morning and I was immediately intrigued.  It is called the Open Library.
They aim to generate a web page per book.  Rather a lofty aim considering the volume of books published past, present and into the future.

There seems to be an enormous number of ebooks available to read.  This may help with some of the more difficult to find books on the 1001 Books Lists.  Then there are the lists – you appear to be able to create anything you like here.  If you are a developer then you can dip your toes in too.

Why not take a look and see what you think?  I would love to hear from you in the comments section if you were able to use it towards your reading goals, especially those associated with the 1001 Books To Read Before You Die lists.

Happy reading !
