Welcome blueeyes. I took a brief look at Ellora's Cave and it seems that they do not have ePUB books (the format Kobo uses best, PDF's being problematic without reflow). You can though download the html versions and then convert them into ePUBs using Calibre. They can then be put onto your Kobo reader. There is no 2 second step by step, so take a look at the Calibre forum, download the program, read the guide etc. If this is too difficult, download the PDF versions, use the Kobo horizontally and see if that is good enough.

My site http://luzme.com has separate searches for Australia, as well as Canada, the UK, and the USA.

I'll be adding some other European countries soon.

Not that I am aware of. There are some listed in the wiki under e-book stores near the bottom but there is not a dedicated page but of course it is a wiki so there is no reason there couldn't be. There is also a page on a Unified ebook search engine.

CALIBRE has a feature where you enter the book name and it will conduct a massive search covering Google Books, Sony, KOBO, Amazon, B&N, Waterstones, and many others. There is a list from which you can select where to search. It is worth looking at since it will come up with a list that allows you to connect to the site where it is for sale or , not sure about this, which library. I hope this answers the question I think is being asked.

Thanks in advance!

Quick update on my site http://luzme.com, I added a Watchlist feature recently which has been getting some good feedback. Basically if the book is too expensive right now, add it to your watchlist on Luzme, and I'll mail you when the price drops below the limit you've set.

http://www.moreofit.com/

I just discovered this website which list ebook sources [500] at a time. Just enter the url of your favorite ebook website and "moreofit" will provide a list of up to 500 similar websites. The list can then be narrowed by many different sub-categories. I believe this will be a great resource.
