Google Begins Book Search Service
:: From NewsScan Daily for Oct 6, 2004:
Google is launching a new service designed to help publishers sell books online. Called Google Print, it will allow users to see book excerpts alongside ordinary Google Web page search results, and will carry a link to buy the book from a variety of online book retailers, including Amazon. "It's an advantage for publishers because it offers them the possibility to promote books online. And for users, it gives them the advantage of accessing information about authors and books and even to read a little from the books," says a Google spokesman.
