More Book Browse Widgets

Kate at Random House Canada just pointed out that they launched a book browse function in May and there are several of their books on Canadian sites that now have this function:
http://www.RandomHouse.ca
http://www.McClelland.com
http://www.BookLounge.ca
http://www.Bookclubs.ca
http://www.MysteryBooks.ca

My Friday post on this widget is a bit confusing because the HarperCollins site appears to have disabled this feature. I can no longer find it on the site. But here’s an example of a working widget from Random House Canada.

UPDATE: And sadly the script for Random House Canada does not seem to work ...

Cool idea, better execution required. I’m going to keep investigating.

If you look at the detail page, you can see the browse function and the widget. The widget share function is not working on my site, but you can at least look inside the book and see how it works. Detail page for Chocolate.
