Searches for book information from the Yahoo Books online catalog.
Creates a query string, then passes the appropriate form fields to the Yahoo Books server.

isbn (now returns isbn13)
isbn10 (no longer provided by Yahoo on page)
ean13 (industry name)
pubdate (no longer provided by Yahoo on page)

binding (if known)
pages (no longer provided by Yahoo on page)
weight (no longer provided by Yahoo on page)

height (no longer provided by Yahoo on page)
The book_link and image_link refer back to the Yahoo Books website.
