I can offer real world (vs online) proof for Megan's points about ways to use social media and the importance of retailers starting a conversation. I read the Powell's blog every day; I get (and actually read) the newsletter; I'm a fan on Facebook. Yet somehow, Powell's Philosophy Cafe escaped my notice until Saturday morning, when I saw the item about the Philosophy Cafe on Powell's twitter feed. I went to the cafe (which was all about conversation - unlike an author's reading, no books were being pushed in any way), enjoyed the event, and then bought three books before I went home. Powell's will always have my loyalty precisely because they don't try to buy it. They earn it - through facilitating great events, trying creative ideas (like Indiespensable) and constantly feeding my bibliophilic curiosity and interests (thanks, Brockman!).

When I read that the NYTBR won't review O'Reilly's book, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Who wants to read a book about what this perv would like to do with you whilst showering or what sweet nothings he might whisper in your ear during a business call turned 1-900-blo-hard? Just one girl's opinion...
