and the look inside feature

As a librarian, I’m kind of pleased with the look inside feature of the web site which allows for the perusal of the first portion of a book without having to commit to making a purchase.  Some of the recommendations seem pretty interesting as well.

Best American Essays 2011

Best American Travel Writing

Best American Mystery Stories

Best American Nonrequired Reading
