I wish to produce a site for many buddies that own a book store.
For 2 reasons:

  1. To allow them to have somewhere to help keep a listing of the books and
  2. I wish to utilize it in an effort to further my web dev abilities.

So, his or her might be a great number of software/websites which do this, I'm not interested.

Does anybody have somewhere they would recommend I recieve these details from?
I understand their are a handful of API's available, like openlibrary and the like. I must have the ability to pull these details and store it during my own database, and so i do not have to depend with an API 24/7. And So I know all API's might not allow that option.
Would Google Books be a choice?

Ideas? I'll take every suggestions, thanks! :)
