With Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Sony and smaller e-stores all vying for your dollars (and device support), how do you decide where to buy? There’s no price match guarantee with eBooks, and if you are platform agnostic, with no clear favorite site, where do you download that new bestseller you wanted?
Head to AddALL Ebook Search. AddALL searches every available eBook store, and gives you a list of prices, formats, and links to download. The major issue I found is that the search algorithm is a bit overly enthusiastic, and will bring back far more related titles than you’d expect for a simple search! Luckily there is an option to choose “Show this title only”, which helps when the list is out of control. A title-only search for “New Moon” by Stephenie Meyer brought back 151 titles! Narrowing it by author and title brought back a much more reasonable 14 options.
Best of all, you can sort by several criteria, including pricing. In a random test, Amazon always came back cheapest, with Barnes and Noble and Sony either tying or within a few cents of each other, though always a bit higher than Amazon. Best of all, it lists the format the book is in, which is helpful if you want to read it in a multi-format reader like FBReader in Linux. Definitely a handy search engine for the savvy shopper!on the iPhone/iPod Touch or
