Lybrary.com feels that Magic, Gambling and Games fit well together because they touch and partly overlap. Magic, Gambling and Games often use the same objects like cards, coins or dice. Lybrary.com often publishes digital versions of old books not because Lybrary.com thinks it will realise a big profit, but because Lybrary.com knows there are treasures and gems hidden in them and because Lybrary.com wants to preserve this arcane knowledge in digital form for many generations to come. To improve ebooks and to make better use of digital media, Lybrary.com is also active in pushing the state-of-the-art of e-book technology and design.
