    Setup a library with digital books

    I have thousands of books from Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Google and Apple, Is there a way I can set up an online library so my friends, or anyone I allow to can search through those books, read them or lend them?
    Your idea will be very appreciated.

      It may be possible, BUT…

      You would have to review the DRM of each book as most online book purchases are only licensed for a single user.
      Some book sellers get quite perturbed when DRM violations
      occur. I would advise against it except for free, “open source”
      books, which then you could just write a simple HTML web page with links to the book for visitors to download.

      I also heard a lot about setting up about the digital library, but never do it. I think this thread might help me now.

        That’s if this thread is updated with useful content. I’m not sure if Google Books can be of use, but it’s how I access my e-books when I have some spare time to spend reading.
