GBS: Google Books in Israel?

There is a brief story in Globes Online that Google Books is launching in Israel, which appears to mean that Google has struck its first partner agreement with an Israeli publisher. The article is slightly confusing, perhaps due to translation issues, so I am not completely certain what this means for the Israeli version of the Google Books service itself.

UPDATE: More from Ha’aretz.

As I see it, is the Hebrew version of Google Books.

see this children’s book, for example (I chose something that doesn’t necessarily requires reading in Hebrew :)):

P.S. If you need any help with translation, I’d be glad to help.
