Google ebookstore now offers Government Printing Office Publications
The Washington Post is reporting that the Government Printing Office publications now can be purchased from Google ebookstore. According to the article, eventually 1,800 government publications will be available. Those who choose to purchase these items will immediately discover the difference in cost from the print version.

This is the latest move into the digital age by the Government Printing Office, which in the past two years has migrated many of its documents to the new Federal Digital System (FDsys).
