Discover Books to Match the Websites You Read

Book Discovery is a browser extension that helps you find books that are related to the content of the websites you read. With Book Discovery installed in your browser whenever you're viewing a website you can click "book discovery" and have a page of suggested books generated for you. The Book Discovery extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Internet Explorer. The video below is a bit slow, but it does show how Book Discovery works.


Applications for Education
Book Discovery could be a good browser extension to have installed when students are doing research on the web. When students find a website that they find useful for their research they can just click on "book discovery" to extend their research to books that might be about the same topic.
