Book review of Tom Sawyer by Sandi W. Age 9:

When Tom met Huck Finn and became friends, it reminded me of when I met my friend Seu Mei. We became best friends for a few years. Between those few years, we met more friends. My favorite part in the book was when Tome tricked his friend. His friend had to paint the fence white and Tom got to rest. I read another book by the same author. It is called Huckleberry Finn. I enjoy reading these books because I like to solve the mysteries.

The main point of view of Google Base is that this is going after eBay and Craigslist, and online classifieds. I would say the target is Wikipedia, too. Is this a dangerous move? Depends. Ask yourself the question: at what point can you afford to lose Google and still do business?
