Google Books as a Kind of Libronix

by Apr 4, 2008Uncategorized0 comments

You can now search my library, or a lot of it. Or kind of some of it.

At Google Books You can see 483 of the books in my library, but remember that some of them I would never have purchased separately; they just came with Logos Scholar’s Gold and I’ve cataloged them. I haven’t cataloged all my books, just the ones whose ISBNs I already had on hand in another list.

You can search the content of some of my books, the ones that Google has digitized. That’s pretty handy.

And if you use Firefox’s keyword search feature (which I use, no exaggeration, probably 500 times per day) you can just type “ml carson” and find all the books in your library by D.A. Carson. Only Google does seem to have a bit of trouble with this. I type “ml berg” (for Jim Berg’s books) and I get An Introduction to Hebrew Syntax. I’m sure they’ll work on that.

Review: Why I Preach from the Received Text

Why I Preach from the Received Text is an anthology of personal testimonies more than it is a collection of careful arguments. It is not intended to be academic, and I see nothing necessarily wrong with that. But it does make countless properly academic claims, and...

The First Thing I Ever Wrote That I Still Have

This is so random, and I don't know who would care—but I just stumbled across the very first document I saved in what ultimately became my Dropbox/Academics folder. It was an exercise I wrote for an English class in high school. I was 16 and 3 mos. What I find...
