Google has quietly begun testing a new service that allows you to search inside a book.
The service is still in Beta, but if it takes off it could revolutionize the way people search for information. According to an article in NewScientist.com:
- "Google Print Beta lets searchers view excerpts from books, as well as author's notes, reviews and cover artwork. It also provides links to online book sellers and related advertising. The service works when a user types the phrase "print.google.com" and search words into Google's search box."
So far Google has content from 60,000 books to search. Check it out at Google Search.
