"Look Inside" and "Search Inside" Books at Amazon
|Look Inside Books:||Selections from the books listed below are scanned in, in high res. Text is clearly readable and art reproductions vary from so-so to excellent. Don't miss the fact that you can usually zoom in via the "View" drop-down menu, along the top row of Amazon's Online Reader.|| |
|Search Inside Books:||Same as "Look Inside", except that the entire book is scanned in, and the text is fully searchable. This is an unbelievable resource, for research and especially for previewing a book when making the decision to buy.|
Note: Some "Search Inside" features are limited to people signed in to an account which has previously made a purchase at Amazon.
