Microsoft’s added a new feature to the Bing search engine: a best-sellers carousel. Searching for books in categories including fiction, non-fiction and manga, will now reveal the appropriate New York Times best-sellers.

Do a search and you’ll see a virtual shelf displaying the book covers. Clicking on a title brings up more information about the book you’re interested in.

Books are ranked by The New York Times on weekly or monthly sales data and Bing’s carousel will update as it lists change.

Last month, Bing updated its iPhone and iPad apps.
