Bypassing Google Book Search

On Google Book Search and on Amazon Search inside the Book Program we are unable to print or copy/paste or print screen what we found. All these restrictions do not prevent us from using what we need – we can always copy the material word by word. To make things faster we can use IBM ViaVoice or some other Speech-To-Text program, then read the excerpt aloud and the machine will take care of the printing. (You need to invest about two hours to train the program).

Usually when you quote five WWW sources with links and all people are not surprised since everybody can do this. It's a whole new game when you can quote in one hour five books without reading them…
