Neotake search engine for e-books
The Teleread blog recently featured a posting about an impressive new search engine that indexes all e-book files on the Internet. The search engine is called Neotake and it allows users to search for e-books in 14 languages and six formats. The formats include: ePub, PDF, Mobipocket, Plucker, Qioo, or TXT. Users that own devices such as the Sony Reader and Nook can download ePub files and Kindle users can find Mobipocket e-books via the mobile version of Neotake. Teleread reports that the mobile version is very user friendly and works great with the Kindle.
