old delphi books released as google books
« on: November 29, 2009, 12:20:39 am »
Hi-

Did anyone ever consider the possibility of requesting some older Delphi books (around Delphi 7 or so) go to google books? Do you think Marco Cantu could be persuaded to do something like that with his out of print title? Since it isn't for sale by first party sellers, it seems it might really help to have this book available as a supplement to freepascal documentation.

I am not sure how difficult it would be to get the publisher and author to go along with something like that.

I picked up 2 old delphi 5,6 books that were cheap (3rd party sellers) recently, but there are less every day to choose from at lower prices. 

thanks,
3rdshiftcoder

This is cool. No more $140 for a used book and titles available. If I understand this right, Lazarus might like this arrangement. Digitized at probably a more fair price.

thanks,
