Do you ever feel like you’re slower than a turtle to catch onto things? I had that feeling yesterday.
I’m working on the third non-fiction book for TSTC Publishing so I do a lot of online research. I’m also a book consultant so I do a lot of online research on agents and publishers - and looking up of terms or things that writers use in their manuscripts. I also edit for companies, which can mean more online research. And I’ve taken on creating and maintaining a third website.
In other words, I do a lot of googling. I do general google research. I google publishing news through the “news” search option on Google.
Yesterday was a duh moment. I discovered Google has the option of searching books.
There are so many ways to search - News, Images, Web, Maps, Shopping… But I found if I click “more,” there are even more ways to search -- Group, Scholar, Finance, Blogs …. and Books.
Wow. You can search for more than just a particular author. Enter a search term and see what you come up with.
Have you clicked on the “more” to see what other searches you can do via Google?
