Microsoft to end Book Search

Interesting development here. According to the New York Times, Microsoft is to end its Live Search Books and Live Search Academic projects. The MS Blog confirms that this will start as early as this week. I wonder if this will have any impact upon the Google Books project? Is it a sign of an industry trend or just MS retrenching? One to watch with interest.
