Google Editions is on its way, a cloud bookstore in direct competition with Amazon and Apple.  So far, there is no explicit model for libraries to use, but Google insiders say that it might be in the works.  Library Journal does a nice job of covering the story.  I can’t wait.  More competition, especially in a freemium model, is just what publishing needs to give it a shot in the arm and cut out the middle man.  Boo-yah.
