Goggle Buys Frommers
Google has agreed to buy Frommer's travel guides from US publishing firm Wiley & Sons for an undisclosed sum.
Google said it would be "a great addition" to the restaurant guide business Zagat, which it bought last year for $151m (£96m).
The search giant will publish reviews online under the Frommer's brand. It has not said whether it will continue to produce printed books.
Its aim is to provide a review for "every relevant place in the world".
