Harper Collins Launches Its “Browse Inside” Feature

HarperCollins launched its “Browse Inside” feature on its website today. Similar to Amazon’s “Search Inside” and a competitor to Google’s Book Search, Harper’s “Browse Inside” allows readers to “get a sense” of the book before purchasing.

According to the website, every HarperCollins book will have a “Browse Inside” feature. Each book has different content available. Some have the first two chapters. Some have just the first few pages from each book. I like this idea as nothing has a better chance of selling me on a book, other than a friend’s recommendation, than an excerpt.

The software allows a blogger or website to embed the feature much like a YouTube video:
