Price/Availability Comparison Site...does it exist?
Hey everyone. I just got my Cybook for Christmas so please bear with me if I'm missing something really simple here.
If I'm looking for a book, I hate having to search through Fictionwise, Books on Board, Mobipocket, Baen, Ebookmall. Does there exist a website that aggregates all the selections and price from various ebookstores and allows you to search on that site? I guess something similar to www.pricegrabber.com where you put in a product name and it gives you back all of the websites that have that product and for what price...

Also, I know some specific sites have certian books cheaper. Like Pocket Books sells Star Trek books for less than most places, even Kindle store.

Well there was a project to develop a search engine to search multiple sites, Discussed in these threads
Unified Search Engine - The ball is in motion
What is a good name for a cross-publisher ebook search engine?
There is a Wiki entry as well for Unified Ebook Search Engine and there is a Java beta version of the search engin which searches a few of the sites which have open API's called JAM Which you could try out.
Its still pretty beta, so not that usable, but its worth keeping an eye on.
I did try to create a custom google search for those sites but could not get it to work. Perhaps someone who's can make more sense of the system could implement one until a custom search engine is ready.

I'm working on such a site at the moment, currently in beta.
Please take a look at http://www.ebookprice.info - all suggestions welcome!
(and yes I know the front page isn't very good, that'll be changing soon)
