Google to become iTunes of books??

An article in the Sunday Times Online (UK) reports that:

"GOOGLE and some of the world’s top publishers are working on plans that they hope could do for books what Apple’s iPod has done for music"

Their vision is that instead of Google's book search merely offering samples of books and referring buyers to Amazon, surfers would be offered the option of downloading an entire book directly to their computer or blackberry type mobile device.

Interesting concept. Do you think it would catch on like iTunes??
