On the Books Sept. 27: Amazon Publishing eating up competition, best songs based on books

++ It’s old news that Amazon is a threat to many publishers and booksellers, many of whom are crying foul, but CNN Money looks at just how deeply the “tentacles reach into all parts of the industry.”

++ Where literature meets rock and roll. The Guardian lists the 10 best songs based on books, including Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ghost of Tom Joad” (The Grapes of Wrath) and Kate Bush’s rather literal — but catchy — “Wuthering Heights.”

++ One blogger writes about his experience with Amazon’s “shoddy on-demand.”

++ How did Google bring the dead sea scrolls to the Web? Check out this video.

++ So random, but I made the exact same connection between the new Kate Spade ads, which are topping thousands of cabs in New York City, and the cover art for Nicole Krauss’ Great House.
