You can read Molecular Biology of the Cell and other biology books here:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=Books
(I only just realised how many good books they have on there :D) (Some are a bit advanced)
Theres a couple of good genetics books on there. Genomes.

Sometimes it seems you have to search for a topic and then you can look at what info the book has on the topic.

Try the gutenberg project, they have some really old stuff there and you can print them out too.
Another favorite text archive of mine is preterhuman.net

Am I the only one around here who likes books with pages?

It costs less online, plus it's more widely available. You can give poor schools books but if you give them internet access, you give them a whole library!

Not really. The textbooks i use are huge and weigh a tonne. Bit difficult to carry around.
Books are better and easier to read, but buying textbooks for university can be very expensive so if you only need to look at one chapter or a diagram then its nice to have the book online.

Anyplace with WIFI(wireless) internet or a phone jack allows access to the internet so yeah, you do get the internet everywhere.
