Google will release a new update to its Google Play Books app later today that will offer users some new ways to quickly skim and browse inside ebooks, especially those of the nonfiction variety.
Imagine you're cooking two recipes from the same cookbook— roast chicken and bruschetta from Around the Table. No problem. Take a peek at the new table of contents view to skip straight to the "Bountiful Tuscan Feast" chapter. Once you've found your recipes, you can easily jump between them using new Quick Bookmarks.
When you're planning your next trip, pick up a Fodor's travel guide and use Skim Mode to browse the whole book and get a sense of which destinations you want to be sure to visit. Bookmark your favorite spots for easy finding later. If you're a student, you can highlight text and take notes while you're reading, then refer back to them later with Skim Mode—the perfect study buddy.
How much do you use Google Play Books for your e-reading needs?
