Just What's So Special About On-Line Bookstores

Bookstores on the web are unlike any you will ever walk into. The premier example is amazon.com. They claim to be the largest retail on-line discount book site (2,800,000 titles) and for practical purposes they probably are. All books offered for sale are searchable on the site. Not only can you search by title, author, subject, keyword, ISBN and publication date, you can also utilize their advanced Boolean query screen. The search engine uses the standard Books in Print subject breakdown. A detail screen is available for each book giving author, price, publication date, publisher, ISBN, the binding format, series, page count (sometimes), physical dimensions, a list of the Books in Print subject categories and occasional annotations or cover shots. The incomparable thing about amazon is the community of readers that have come forth to comment on the books that they have read. For a really popular book, you may may find a synopsis or two from the publisher and an authority like Kirkus, a card catalog comment from the library of congress, personal remarks from the author, a review from an amazon staffer, several evaluations from readers and maybe even a table of contents! The Eyes notification service will send you e-mail about new items that come in for narrow search criteria you establish, if you request it. The site also has best seller lists, a chat room, special offers, prizes, etc.
