MetaSearch For eBooks

Search engine fun day continues with this cool metasearch engine for eBooks called Addall. Addall searches over 30 sites for great stuff to e-read. Filter by author, title, keyword or ISBN. Results show in table form, with the elements of the table also serving as filtering tools. Both free and paid books are included, but you can sort by that trait as well. You also can narrow by book format (Kindle, HTML, PDF) and can exclude terms. Did you get a new Kindle or other eReader for Christmas? Then this search engine’ s for YOU!

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Internet Searching …

… or at least a great deal of it may be found in the pages of this “book” brought to you by the fine peeps at MakeUseOf. The 39-page PDF, aptly named “Guidebook To Internet Searching“, includes tips and tools for this increasingly-important skill. The book is broken down into sections devoted to the major search players and more esoteric tools by topic, such as searching for people, products, images, video, files, real time, and everyone’s favorite computational engine, Wolfram / Alpha. I love the Google search “cheat sheet” at the end, with lots of search terminology. Also, check out some of the other great Guidebooks they list at the back.

I bet there is something in here that will be new to you!
