Google plans to print 2m books

GOOGLE yesterday unveiled plans to print 2m books after striking a deal with a book printing company. <br /><br />Over the last seven years, Google has been scanning millions of&nbsp; out-of-print books from libraries and made them searchable on the internet.<br /><br />But now bookstores that purchase the Espresso Book Machine &ndash; which is made by Google&rsquo;s partner in the venture, On Demand Books &ndash; will be able to print these off as and when customers demand them. <br /><br />The Espresso Book Machine costs $140,000 (&pound;85,000) and&nbsp; can print a 300 page book in four minutes.&nbsp; <br />
