Google Book Search upgrades

Google Book Search has been upgraded with a slick AJAX interface for faster, easier book browsing.

Borrowing a few pages (sorry) from Adobe Reader, the new Google Book Search lets you flip pages by pressing arrow keys or clicking a scrollbar, and change text size by zooming in or out. You can quickly jump to other chapters or sections by clicking links in the new table of contents. Google also amped up search speed and added a full-screen mode.

Alas, the actual book selection remains kinda weak (though we always appreciate free book downloads), but hopefully that will change over time. At least Google Book Search itself shows significant improvement.
