For at least a week, Amazon has been serving up some new features on individual book pages, including "First Sentence," which is fun and someone needs to explore that one more fully, in an API kinda way; and, more interestingly, "Statistically Improbable Phrases" (SIPs). Which lets you find other books with the same SIP (e.g., "aluminum trees"), or just let business-book jargon wash over you. Jargon Watch take note. Spam engines, too. And fans of concrete poetry.
