This innovative site compares prices from as many as 34 sources, including Kindle Store, Kobo, B&N, Lulu, iBookstore, Smashwords as well as free eBook sites (Project Gutenberg, Internet Archive, Feedbooks). You can search by title, author or keyword. You can narrow your search only to free eBooks. This can be done by clicking a separate button next to search box.
On a front page you have direct links to lists of current free eBooks from major eBookstores. This way you can find and add free titles to your device or app from a primary eBookstore, not as third-party. Each title on a search results page is accompanied with the information about how many sources offer the book, the list of supported devices and a first line of description. The price shown is the lowest found.
You have several tools to narrow down and sort your search. You can pick up a price range or select results by content type (i.e. textbooks, audiobooks), device and average rating.
Luzme is as simple and friendly as Inkmesh. You can search books by author, title or ISBN. Search results are displayed in groups: book series, authors and suggestions of particular titles. Tip: it’s good to type author’s full name or the full title of the book to get most relevant results. Otherwise the list of suggestions may be too long.
On a book page you’ll see buying options split into two currency sections: GBP and USD. You also have information about available eBook formats. You’ll see whether the book has Adobe DRM. What is especially helpful is that regional restrictions are listed so that you can immediately know whether the book is available in your country.
Another helpful option is the information about the date of a latest price check, so that you can be aware of a possible price change if you move to a bookstore. The site is a bit slower than Inkmesh and it doesn’t have those advanced search features, but it’s a great way to compare prices and availability for readers in different countries.
