Thanks to Google for a huge book catalogue. It encourages browsing and gives useful information and links. It's interesting to see the cover view, and also consider the national character of books of different countries in each each genre. Young adult books on Google Books, for example, seem predominantly American publications, yet there is a very healthy YA book industry in Australia and other countries. I like the My library page, to which I plan to add various titles which I'd like to buy or borrow. I can find out if a particular title is held and available at my local library, and if not, where I might find it. Maybe I'll add a review one of these days.
