A comment below asked about a notation in a particular passage in a book I referenced. As it turns out the book is fully searchable on Amazon. Myself, I do searches on google books, and if there isn’t a “view” of the book I’m looking for (or that page isn’t viewable), I will check for the book on Amazon. This covers a large proportion of the “fact checking” one might need to do. Also, google scholar is pretty well integrated with books, so you might just want to start out there. Here are the libraries who have signed on to google books, so you can imagine that the coverage is pretty good.

  1. I have read large chunks of books on Amazon by searching the page numbers as I go along. I don’t know if it still works, and they eventually cut you off arbitrarily, but it has worked well for me in the past. 
    It would be nice if google offered an iTunes style payment option to read through the books for which a limited preview is available. I won’t hold my breath though…
