Amazon's Fan Connection
This from USA Today's blog, "Pop Candy":
Amazon.com has lauched a feature where authors can connect with fans through blog updates, book recommendations, reviews and more. So far more than 1,000 authors have joined Amazon Connect, including Rick Moody, Elizabeth Kostova and Wonkette's Ana Marie Cox. Moody, by the way, highly recommends Brian Wilson's SMiLE and Thomas Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49.
