If you don’t feel like messing with a reader app, but still want to get an idea of what a book you are interested in is about, follow this quick guide to preview books through Google.

Look for an option on the right side (desktop) or below the search bar (mobile) and select Preview
And that’s it. You can read the first few dozen pages of the book you are interested in. Just a heads up, it doesn’t seem like every book has this feature, but quite a few do.
