Misha is right; I had totally forgotten Google books has a lot of books
scanned. I think I even used it once to find a missing portion of text.

I think Barnes and Noble lets you look inside some of the books too but I
think it is probably the same ones you can look inside at Amazon.

Also some publisher web sites let you look inside books. I'm thinking Harper
is probably the one I saw recently that let me peek inside of the book and
read the first chapter but I can't remember for sure. I sign up for the
mailing lists at a lot of publisher sites so I can be aware of new books I
might want to read.
