Google Book Search


What is Google Book Search?
Search the full text of books to find ones that interest you and learn where to buy or borrow them.

How does Google Book Search work?
Just do a search on Google Book Search or on When we find a book whose content contains a match for your search terms, we’ll link to it in your search results. Click a book title and you’ll see, like a card catalog entry, some basic information about the book. You may also see a few snippets of text from the book showing your search term in context. If the publisher or author has given us permission through our Partner Program then you’ll see a few full pages from the book and if the book is out of copyright, you’ll be able to page through the entire book. In all cases, you’ll see links that lead directly to online bookstores where you can buy the book.
