SUMMARY: The purpose of this project is to practice web scraping by extracting specific pieces of information from a website. The Python web scraping code leverages the Selenium module.
INTRODUCTION: Books to Scarpe is a fictional bookstore that desperately wants to be scraped according to its site owner. It is a safe place for beginners learning web scraping and for developers validating their scraping technologies as well. This iteration of the script automatically traverses the book listing and detail web pages to capture all the descriptive data about the books and store them in a CSV output file.
