    I just learned of this: https://books.google.com/talktobooks/

    Not impressed.

    It was first announced at a TED talk in 2018. 5 years later,
    the output is just "close approximations to the words you use
    in your query", and based on 120,000 books scanned into
    google.books. The results are pretty fast, although it only
    matches 3 or 4 books at a time.

    novel mommypr0n smut. Ick.

    Yowza is right. It seems to simply pick up on the words in the question/phrase. What it finds may not even be relevant to what
    was expected.
