Amazon has recently launched a beta version of a service for readers called @author.The whole idea here is to make it easier for readers and authors to interact with each other.
If you click on the link, it explains the whole thing. I'm telling you this, mainly because I'm one of the authors involved in testing out the program. So, if you have a question for me, fire away! :)
Oh, and BTW, happy Labor Day weekend (or Labour Day, if you will). :)
