Amazon.com - an Internet discount book store; offers search capabilities on Author, Subject and Title; has an option (called Eyes) for users to receive email notices when new books with certain keywords in the title or by a certain author are released for publication; best to order several books at a time to reduce shipping and handling costs per book.
