, a new search engine devoted solely to books, has just launched.
The engine is searchable by keyword, or via an extensive list of genres, some 50+.
Bookhitch also offers authors and publishers the option to sell their books directly via the site.
With both free and paid listings for submitted books – the site makes it easy for small presses and authors to gain more exposure for their work and hopes to provide an avenue for readers to locate hard-to-find titles that may not be available at their local bookstores.
Check out the site’s FAQ page here, to learn more about how it works.
