  • About | "When you read a book, the words can inspire new, original thoughts in your mind. These thoughts are never heard, because they have no place to go. But from now on, the blank space around the text is public domain. When your write thoughts in this openmargin, they become real traces in the book, left for other readers to find." Books in the cloud, with shared annotation, for iPad and the web.
