On August 3, HarperCollins launched its "Browse Inside" feature, which allows users to peruse pages from digitized books. The kickoff of "Browse Inside" includes titles by Isabel Allende, Geraldine Brooks, Paulo Coelho, Bernard Cornwell, Michael Crichton, Karen Kingsbury, C.S. Lewis, Lisa Scottoline, Robin Sharma, and Rick Warren, but the plan is to roll it out to all of the publisher's titles.
In the future, authors will be able to link to Browse Inside pages from their blogs, and HarperCollins also hopes to allow users of social networking sites such as MySpace to link to pages from favorite books.
