Google Book Search

Google's controversial new Book Search feature allows you to
search the full-text of thousands of books.
If a retrieved title is in the public domain or
Google has received permission from the copyright
holder, the searcher can view the full-text online.
If a retrieved title is protected by copyright, the
searcher can see a descriptive 'snippet,' bibliographic
details and links to sources for purchase.

Book Search.
