LibraryThing adds another neat feature

LibraryThing is now using the Google Book Search API and is providing users with a way to search within their books (if they’re part of Google’s collection):

The official Google Blog and the Inside Book Search Blog just announced the new Google Book Search API, with LibraryThing as one of the first implementors. (The others are libraries; I’ll be posting about what they’ve done over on Thingology.)

In sum, LibraryThing now links to Google Books for book scans—full or partial—and book information.

This is a pretty neat addition!! I’ll have to check it out in a year when I’m not so busy!
