Wired Magazine had a story about Amazon’s full text search feature set to be published in their next issue, but since Amazon launched the feature, they went ahead and published the story online. Just as Google News forever changed the way I consume news, I expect that Amazon’s full text search will change the way I read and purchase books. Sometimes I just sit and wonder how I managed to get through life before the Web.

Update: Joi Ito points out that Amazon’s Search Inside the Book provides yet another venue for ego surfing.
