The Society of Automotive Engineers has decided to apply the same forward thinking to its web site it has to its information. Borrowing ideas from the iTunes Store and Amazon, the SAE has revamped its bookstore for easier navigation and added an eBook store for engineers on the go.

Navigation is broken down by subject on the left, and you can scroll through, album style, on the main page. Electronic books are searchable and compatible with PCs, hand-helds, and proprietary readers like the Kindle, Sony Reader, and iPhone. Best of all, SAE archives your eBook library for your own virtual library. That way you can always download Brake Design and Safety, Second Edition when you need to impress the gal in the seat next to you on the subway.

      The number of ebook titles is pretty small compared to available print titles and they aren't any cheaper. I suppose it's nice that you have the option of purchasing individual chapters though.

      Hmm, could be a great asset to college students... I can already see a couple of papers being written from this. (Auto Eng. Student)
