Fun with Google Magazines

Back in December, Google announced that they had added lots of magazine content (archives and current issues) to Google Book Search. I started poking around this week, and have lost hours browsing back issues of Baseball Digest, Popular Science, and New York Magazine.

My favorite find (so far) is this February 1999 Baseball Digest, proclaiming Omar Vizquel as the best defensive shortstop in the majors.

Former Knicks star Walt Frazier was one of my earliest basketball heroes, so I also love this 1974 Jet cover.

More samples on the Stanford Library’s Information Center Blog.
