Who categorizes books for Google? 
16th-Apr-2011 11:08 am

Some time ago, I was looking to see what books might interest me on Google Books. I don't know who (or what pattern matcher) categorizes books for them. But, this is certainly not what I was expecting to find in Technology & Engineering.

Wherein books like Charlotte"s Web, Moby Dick, Big Red Barn Board Book, and If You Give A Pig A Pancake are Technology and Engineering

Looking today, it appears as though Five Little Monkeys is the top Mathematics book.

Um, I'm guessing since the first one is mostly dedicated to building (webs), and the second because, um, people build ships?

my favorite is "sheep in a jeep". that's some technology right there.

Jeeps ARE amazing technology, if you are a sheep.

And Moby Dick does have some great passages on 19th century whaling technology.

That's not as surprising as seeing you use IE on Windows.
