ATG Quirkies: Have your e-book and shelve it too

Lending ebooks just got easier, at least according to Wallpaper lets your friends borrow e-books from real-world shelves a recent post in Engadget

Vodafone Romania deserves the credit. According to author Jon Fingas “its new Digital Library Wallpaper gives stack_of_books - openclipart.orgyou real-world (if very flat) bookshelves to showcase your digital wares. As the library owner, you order a custom adhesive wallpaper that reflects the free e-books you’ve chosen at Vodafone’s website. Once the print is on display, visitors to your home just have to scan QR codes to borrow titles and start reading…”

Needless to say there are a few limitations to the concept like a home website in Romanian, but it’s an interesting idea nonetheless.
