While many schools of thought might consider this notion preposterous verging on sacrilegious, David Wojick suggests that WorldWideScience.org (WWS) just happens to be THAT good.  In his interview on Scholarly Kitchen’s Chefs’ Selections:  The Best Books Read During 2013 (Part 2) he states:

WWS integrates almost a hundred other science portals, most of which are national in scope, while some are international. The chief US contribution is Science.gov, itself a federated portal which integrates numerous US federal agency research report portals. Both WWS and Science.gov were built and are operated by the Department of Energy’s Office of Scientific Information (OSTI). Deep Web Technologies is the amazing developer.

With a multilingual translation feature for results, WWS has captured scientists from across the globe. While Kindle may not support WorldWideScience for a bedtime story, the WWS mobile app can rock you softly to sleep in 10 different languages.  And no need for a bookmark.
