Even if an ereader device doesn’t include a proper web browser, odds are that if you’re shopping on an online ebookstore, there’s a way to jump the fence and check out the rest of the Web. Nate at The Digital Reader has been playing around with his new Story HD over the weekend, and he found a way to do just that.
My trick involves first entering the Google eBookstore, then going to the Help pages. When you’re on the first Help page, look at the links across the top. The one labeled Books will take you to books.google.com, and that is one of Google’s home pages. You can jump from books.google.com to Google.com by clicking on the “Web” link at the top. And once you’re on Google’s home page, you can search for a site and go just about anywhere.
