Google had been scanning and converting images to text using OCR (optical character recognition). They have been able to build a large dataabase of books that are now fully searchable on the web. However, Google limits the usage of these books to read-only pages and cannot be downloaded for offline use. Only few books are available with full preview based on agreements with publishers, but there is a way out.
