(National-NBC) Nov. 15, 2005 - "Rent" a good book lately?
That's what Google is hoping web surfers will be asking someday. The search engine is trying to convince publishers to let people "rent" an on-line copy of a recently published book for a small fee.
The details are still being worked out.
Google sees it as an opportunity for publishers and authors to make more money by tapping into the growing digital-book market.
