Non-Amazon Book Plugins? (2 posts)

    I don't think that Amazon is the be-all and end-all of online bookstores. I much prefer to send my money to other, more independent places, like Powell's or Alibris or something. The tricky thing about this in blogging, though, is that all the plugins seem to be built for linking to Amazon. Are there any that provide alternatives? Is there any easy way to modify the existing plugins to link to Powell's or something, instead of going straight to the big octopus?

    If you could get an RSS of your wish list on those sites, you could list it in the sidebar. That wouldn't give affiliate links though.

    If the independent web sites, have web services APIs via XML, you could use Yahoo! Pipes to create something like this tutorial:
