Google Books today, introducing “Doodle Mode” for a select group of Google eBooks. Take a virtual crayon to these digital books and go wild: draw pictures and diagrams, connect the dots, or underline words.
“To get started, select any of ebooks, available for purchase, “The Everything Kids'” series, which’s the first line of ebooks to have Doodle Mode. Open them in the Google eBooks Web Reader. The Web Reader works in all modern browsers and lets you read Google eBooks without having to download them. (Note, however, that Doodle Mode doesn’t yet work with Internet Explorer browsers.),” Google explained.
“Once you’ve chosen and opened an ebook, go to the upper-right hand menu and click on “Doodle Mode” to begin. A box will appear, showing you where you can start doodling. Use your mouse to click inside the box, and you’ll start drawing with the crayon. You can use Doodle Mode in the Web Reader whether you’re accessing it through your computer or iPad.”
Doodles aren’t saved, so you’re free to doodle again and again on the pages of the ebooks without having to worry about using them up. (But if you do create a particularly stunning doodle, be sure to take a picture or a screenshot.),” Google added.
