Plugin Description :
BookX creates an easy way to give your site visitors a peek at your recommended books.  Using only ISBN numbers, it gets the
information from Barnes and Noble (http://www.bn.com) and stores the information locally to both speed up the response time, but
also to not bog down their servers with repetetive requests.  BookX creates a widget for your sidebar, a list view, and detail view,
all customizable from the easy to use admin interface.
