Just weeks after Amazon.com entered the search arena with its A9.com search engine and toolbar, dominant search provider Google has added book content to its search results page.

The new Google Print service will serve book information and sample pages for users to browse while searching, as well as links to online booksellers like Amazon.com, BN.com, etc. The service launches this week with English-language books; Google plans to add other languages in the coming months.
