Google making 2 million public domain books available for print on demand

Google is making two million books that are in the public domain available for sale through  a print on demand service. The deal is currently US-

Booksellers in the US with On Demand Books' Expresso printing machine will be able to spit out a 300 page book with a colour cover in under 4 minutes. The machines print, bind and cut the books there and then.

The deal will allow readers to get hold of books which are out of copyright and may not currently be printed by existing publishers.
