My topic is about Google. Google is a research tool that most people use everyday. More than 1.17billion visit Google daily. Google is the most popular website in the world. When you go to Google and type in "How many books are there in the world?" it will give you an answer and give you a list of other websites about books.
It also gives you a choice at the bottom of the search bar to choose, All, Images, News, Shopping, Videos, Maps, Books, and Flights.
Google has a feature called Google Maps.. When you give it a destination, it will take you to the place you want to go. I use Google Maps to go to school and home.
