Google Print

I notice it two days ago and it starts working today. Google Print has been released. It's homepage is just a FAQ, you can't simply search for books. Just do a web search for a book name, and the result should come on the top of your page.

You can preview the books, reading a few pages [images, not text]. Copying and printing it is disabled, through what looks like some nifty CSS or Javascript. But that's easy to avoid, look at the source. I think that only publicly available books are indexed right now, but the more the better.

Just check a few results:

Search for Crime and Punishment resulted in:

And this is the link given.

Search for Beyond Good and Evil, and viola.

This is the summary for it.
