Amazon starts "Search Inside the Book"

Jeff Bezos wrote a letter to his customers today, telling them that from now on, they are able to search a full text index of 120.000 books with 33 million pages through Amazon's regular search box. Pretty cool feature !

For example, if work for a company like TBWA and you want to know, in which books your agency is mentioned, just ask Amazon and you promptly get an answer . You can even see the context in which the expression is used in every single book, like in this one on Buzz Marketing.
