Python Script

So I spent all day making a python program.  However, it uses google for the search, and the apis only let you search 100 times a day, so I'm not sure how well it will work, unless I'm missing something.  Anyway this is what it does.

Finds all .mobi converted books in a folder called 'ready,' and finds the exact name so no worrying about what it is called or anything.

Searches google for the amazon page of the book, because the Amazon search is kind of weird.  Then it collects that link for later on a webpage called readlinglist.html

Finds the asin number, copies it to a new folder called 'copytokindle' and renames the book properly for later use.

Then it opens the readinglist webpage and tells you to click and download the demo of each book.  Make sure you do this step and properly sync before copying because the kindle software will overwrite the custom books.

Finally, copy the newly renamed books to /.palmkindle on your touchpad
I successfully did this to about 30 before "code": 403, "message": "Daily Limit Exceeded" } started showing up, without any errors, so...
