What about using that - have a computer "read" a portion, which would get rid of any white spaces, formatting, Punctuation mistakes. just a thought

Anyhoo, i like your idea, many calibre users have tagged their books, so helping others to not have to do the same is a great idea.

Dam, its got my brain going round in circles as to how you could reliably fingerprint a book. May have to use 2 stage algorithms, along with some fuzzy. good luck
