WOW--check out Open Library

You know how often Larry and I refer to Internet Archive here, right?  
Well, here's their incredible Open Library search engine page.  It is what it says.
Go there now, and bookmark it for yourself. 
It's not JUST for history. 
"Open Library is an initiative of the Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form".
