Meet the author
I just saw in Publishers Weekly that the Apple Store in New York City's Soho district is hosting author interviews, where major writers talk about their work, and read a bit from their latest. These interviews, which include Select Editions favorite James Patterson, among others, are available singly or as a subscription, and like all iTunes podcasts, are free for the taking. Of course, the goal is for Apple to sell you the audio version of the book after you've gotten teased by the authors, but those of us getting the book on paper will still be able to benefit. Seek it out on iTunes or try to connect through this URL Meet the Authors, (which will launch iTunes for you). Don't have iTunes? Well, that's free too. Just go to the Apple.com site and download either the Mac or PC version. You don't need an iPod to enjoy top-drawer literary conversation (and plenty else, besides).
