Post stories + Amazon.com books

Alan Taylor, creator of Amazon Light, has integrated Amazon book selections with Washington Post news feeds to produce these pages:

In Alan's words, it's "a listing of book titles found on Amazon.com, which are relevant to the content in the current edition of the Washington Post."

It works by grabbing the appropriate washingtonpost.com RSS feeds, sending the text to Yahoo's Term Extraction service to get keywords, then searching Amazon.com for the keywords.

This is more than a mashup -- it's a multimashup.

See the About page for the full details.
