For thing 6 we are going to take a look at AuthorsOnTheWeb.com
This site is useful for people looking for the next book by their favourite author or someone looking for new authors. It has a “Coming Attractions” feature that lists the new and upcoming books by month, and dates of paperback publication.
You can link to the AuthorYellowPages to get the web address of almost any author you can think of. AuthorsOnTheWeb.com and AuthorYellowPages are put together by TheBookReportNetwork.com, which also created ReadingGroupGuides.com, an online community for reading groups, and Bookreporter.com, a great place to get to know more about your favourite authors, as well as several other reading-related sites.
