Purchase Parts of Books from Google and Amazon

Both Google and Amazon allow you to see parts of books (both copyrighted and non-copyrighted). They are both developing systems that will allow you to view full pages or chapters of books online for a cost. Downloading or printing those pages might cost more. Google's would work through Google Print; Amazon through its Search Inside service. Random House has put forward the possibility of charging 5 cents per page for viewing: 4 cents to the publisher and creator and 1 cent to the distributor (Google, Amazon, etc.).
