Online books next for Google?

After its recent announcement of plans for an online video store, Google is considering selling book downloads online, reports Alfred Hermida for BBC News.
Sony is also trying to invigorate demand for e-books. At CES, it launched a new portable device to read e-books and announced deals with major publishers to sell them online.

Asked if Google would consider doing something similar, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said: "Subject to permission from the copyright holder, yes. I want to be clear on that."
