    Re: google old books on nav in good format

    This is a terrific new feature.  I hope they get this going for more books
    soon.  This option is not available for the 1826 version of Bowditch, for
    example.  The last time I checked, though, the scan of that book was in bad
    shape -- big chunks of pages all given the same number.  Some of those
    groups of pages were scanned again and again...

    It must be a lot of work putting all of these old books online.
    I like the Project Guttenburg approach, where anyone can help a little bit.
