Google Books Now Has Embed Feature

google_books_logo.pngGoogle Books allows for you to search and preview millions of books from libraries and publishers worldwide. You can scan and search books and magazines on any topic that you can think of. It also provides a link if you would like to purchase the book. Now you can take a preview of the book (say you want to show students a book you would like for them to purchase or show them a certain page in an article), and embed it into your website or your blog. The embed code works with iframes. All you need to do is click on the book, then click Link on the top right of the book. Copy the iframe code and paste it into your website or blog (in code editing mode). Now you can scroll or zoom in or out of the book pages. It’s better than pasting a non interactive link on your site. To learn more click on the link below:
