Google Books adds 3D Reading Option

From the announcement:

These days, 3D seems to be everywhere. From Hollywood blockbusters to LCD televisions, those iconic cardboard glasses seem to be everywhere, even on President Obama. Our friends at YouTube released a 3D experiment, and NASA released 3D images from the Mars rovers.
This got a few of us on the Google Books team to thinking: why not offer our books in 3D? So we've done exactly that. Now, when you visit a book, you'll see a new option: "View in 3D".
Click it and you'll see the page as an anaglyphic image. You'll need a pair of red-cyan 3D glasses and you'll be able to start reading in 3D!

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
