Some New Techie/literary stuff:

HarperCollins has released a “Browse Inside” widget that simply opens the Browse Inside feature in a new window (example), while the Random House widget is a bit more advanced: it lets you browse the pages of the book in the widget itself, and even pop out a large window so you can actually read the book as a slideshow.



Even better: they’ve provided an option to copy the widget without leaving the page you’re on, and a “buy” link to buy the book on the publisher’s site. There’s also a book search to find other Random House books. Rupert Murdoch may own HarperCollins and MySpace, but RandomHouse is outshining them when it comes to widgets.



Both services also launched online book searches this week, suggesting that they’re finally getting to grips with this whole Internet thing (who knows - maybe it’ll catch on? ). Other socially networked book services include GoodReads, Shelfari, LibraryThing and the Bebo
