Scrape your first Google Play Books results with SerpApi

Head to the Google Play Books Results from the documentation on SerpApi for details.

In this tutorial, we will scrape the top chart of free books. The data contains: "title", "author", "link", "description", "rating", "category", "thumbnail" and more. You can also scrape more information with SerpApi.

First, you need to install the SerpApi client library.

pip install google-search-results

Set up the SerpApi credentials and search.

import serpapi
import os, json, csv

params = {
    'api_key': 'YOUR_API_KEY',         # your serpapi api
    'engine': 'google_play_books',     # SerpApi search engine	
    'chart': 'topselling_free'

To retrieve Google Play Books Results for a given search query, you can use the following code:

client = serpapi.Client()
results =['top_charts']

You can store Google Play Books Results JSON data in databases or export them to a CSV file.

import csv

header = ['title', 'author', 'link', 'description', 'rating', 'category', 'thumbnail']

with open('google_play_books.csv', 'w', encoding='UTF8', newline='') as f:
    writer = csv.writer(f)


    for item in results:
        writer.writerow([item.get('title'), item.get('author'), item.get('link'), item.get('description'), item.get('rating'), item.get('category'), item.get('thumbnail')])

This example is using Python, but you can also use your all your favorite programming languages like Ruby, NodeJS, Java, PHP, and more.
