Google Book Search Gets Swankier

Over at the Google Books Blog, there is a long post (with pictures! golly) that describes how they've improved Google Book Search in several different ways.

What's Google Book Search? Well, it's where Google is scanning book after book and then putting the contents on the web. You know, the service that's got lots of folk in a tizzy because of copyright infringement, pirating, things like that.

Time past, it was called Google Print - but after a couple of big lawsuits, things have changed.
