Yep, they're just repurposing (violating the license of) isbn.nu, amazon.com and bookpool that I can see. You can see too, if you check the wording and right-click to see where the images are being sourced from.
I'm sure Amazon has a patent that forbids this behavior... <grin>
Seriously though, these new sites that are simply screen-scraping material from other sites and misleading consumers into believing that its their own content, need to be very careful with how they violate the laws of transcoding other content.
Tsk tsk, shame on them.
