looking for a "jump menu" plugin

I am creating a multisite for authors. One thing I saw on another site was a drop down menu inside the content of the page for the reader to select where to buy a book. Here's an example: http://authormichaelhicks.com/free-novel/

I Googled "jump menu" but didn't come up with this type of plugin. Any suggestions on a plugin (free or paid) that does this function?

Thanks, Joe.

    Hi @joejacobson,

    Thank you for your question.

    I checked it and i don't think it's some kind of plugin. I think it is custom coded.
    You can develop similar one by creating list box as following and on change event just redirects it to the url of that option value using JavaScript.

    <select style="width: 180px;" name="jumpmenu" onchange="jumpto(document.form1.jumpmenu.options[document.form1.jumpmenu.options.selectedIndex].value)">
    <option>Choose Retailer...</option>
