Google API

Google has released some APIs that allow you to embed a book-preview on your own website or blog

Browse Fretz Family History by Rev AJ Fretz:

The only thing you need is the BookSearchID which is the alphanumeric code that follows ID= in GoogleBooks search results.

John, Thanks for posting this information. I can see where such a gadget would be most helpful in blog articles. What remains to see is if I have the technical skills to embed such at my blog. I appreciate your calling this to attention.
