View Full Version : Free Book Search Service--via Microsoft.

Hi, folks. Just found this advertisement in Publisher's Lunch. I skimmed the site and it looks pretty good. I'm a little baffled, though. It claims that authors that own their rights and have an ISBN are eligible to submit and sign up, but the application has info boxes that are directly related to publishers.

Can anybody make sense out of this? This is a Microsoft inovation, apparently.

Never heard of it. I'm assuming it's no longer in operation.
