Jack Kerouac's On The Road turned into Google driving directions and published as a free eBook
Gregor Weichbrodt, a German college student, took all of the geographic stops mentioned in On the Road, plugged them into Google Maps, and ended up with a 45-page manual of driving directions, divided into chapters paralleling those of Kerouac's original book. You can read the manual -- On the Road for 17,527 Miles-- as a free ebook.

How eBooks lost their shine: 'Kindles now look clunky and unhip'
