The Best Black Book Search Engine Period!

Ok, despite the pretentious descriptor this is really a good way to query and learn about web sites that focus on books written by Black authors.

I gathered all of the good web sites that I’ve come across and restricted the Google search engine to return results from them. The sites include venerable institutions like Cushcity.com and Mosaicbooks.com, you’ll also see fantastic new comers like Ebonyfly.com and the urbanbooksource.com, and of course AALBC.com.

Currently there are 50 web sites included. If you want to make sure I did not forget any sites please let me know by placing the URL here.
