Book Search Engine.

I was just reading an article by Ken Fisher who writes for Forbes. He mentioned that he likes collecting books, mostly about investing of course, and that he uses a search engine specifically for finding printed books.

The name of the site is AbeBooks.com and looks very user-friendly.

In this day and age of electronic media, it's good to have a source for the real thing, and an appreciation for the printed word!

Google has search feature for books with some very long previews. First result for anthracite coal has a preview of 90 pages:

Thousands of free books can be downloaded from here but these will all be old ones no longer copyrighted:

Archive.org has yet another collection. They also have public domain music, video etc.
