Subject:        Totally Searchable Database on Amazon.com

Amazon.com now has a new service allowing users to search all words
printed in the book as well as on the cover and back cover.  The books I
checked are entirely online as well.  I guess the marketing strategy is
based on the premise that if you read some of a book online you'll want
to own it in print form.  In any case, the really great thing is the
incredibly powerful search engine.  You do have to register (it's free)
to use the search engine.
