I'm wondering if anyone know of a soap call that can be made to Amazon or other book sellers to get back information on an ISBN?  I have purchase a barcode scanner and am looking to write a C# app that I can scan the book and return things such as Title, Auther Etc.  I am really hoping not to have to screen scrape.

Thanks for your time.

Jaime.

This might be the solution that I am looking for but am wondering if any other developers are using this solution?  By the look of it, amazon is charging for the use of this service so I am not sure if to do something as simple of polling their system would be a charge or not?

well, will be easier for you to write directly to amazon and ask for the pricing or restrictions.
