The National Library of Norway is digitizing ALL THE BOOKS. Or, actually, all its books. The Atlantic’s Alexis Madrigal explains:

By law, “all published content, in all media, [must] be deposited with the National Library of Norway,” so when the library is finished scanning, the entire record of a people’s language and literature will be machine-readable and sitting in whatever we call the cloud in 15 years. 
If you happen to be in Norway, as measured by your IP address, you will be able to access all 20th-century works, even those still under copyright. Non-copyrighted works from all time periods will be available for download. 

Start planning that Scandinavian vacation! Also, learn to read Norwegian.
