    You should look into WooCommerce for WordPress and their Product Finder extension.

    That would allow you to let visitors filter by attributes, which could be Author, Subject etc

    If you can code (or afford to hire a programmer) I'd recommend Magento or Open Cart. You can take off the shelf search (Solr).

    What type of books? Are they ebooks? Are they physical books? If it is physical books, you should check out this site called Amazon.com. They sell all kinds of books.

    But in all seriousness. If they are downloadable books, check out Shopify with Fetch App. If you know wordpress, check out Fetch App or some of the other download managers.

    If they are physical books, curious how you will be able to distinguish yourself from Amazon. What I would consider since they control that market, check out amazon webstore which will allow to host a site on their servers.

    WooCommerce comes HIGHLY recommended if you're already familiar with Wordpress and want to develop an online shop. It's free, although you will need to make a small investment for some of their more popular extensions.

    Here is a complete list of their extensions (some are free, some are paid):

    OsCommerce is also an alternative, but will require more time to understand file structures, php/mysql. Also, installing modules (extensions) is not always a simple task if you don't have a programming background.

    Hope this helps, and good luck!
