Out of curiosity I just did a Google search for “digitalhobbit” to find any references to my site (not that I really expected any…). One of the links that was returned among the top search results was this one. It points to a site called All Consuming, which apparently monitors blogs for Amazon book links and uses this information to generate a page of the most discussed books, along with links to Amazon, to blogs discussing the books, etc. Of course, it uses its own Amazon Associates ID in the links in order to generate revenue.

After digging a little further into the site, I have to admit that it actually offers some interesting features. For example, it allows blog admins to create a reading list and automatically include it into their blog using Javascript. I might actually try this feature out, as I am still looking for a nice way to implement a list of book recommendations or books that I’m currently reading on my blog.
