Amazon Enhanced Data Source for Tellico
***************************************

Version: 0.1 [2006-09-19]
Author: Salvatore Privitera

This script gets book details from the amazon web-service and convert them in the format used by tellico.

It has the following enhancements with respect to the amazon data source provided by Tellico:

- Derive subtitle and series name from the book title. It assumes the following title format:

TITLE[: SUBTITLE] [(SERIES)]

where [...] denotes an optional component.

- Adds the amazon "average customer review", the number of reviews, and the sales rank as custom fields, useful to know the popularity of the book.

- Displays the amazon rating with the same 'stars' pictures used in the site. The stars are displayed with an opacity of 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% depending on the number of reviews. This gives a good visual feedback on both the popularity and rating of the book. The opacity is computed as follows:

- 25% if the book has between 1 and 9 reviews

- 50% if the book has between 10 and 19 reviews

- 75% if the book has between 20 and 29 reviews

- 100% if the book has 30 or more reviews

Embedding the images is a great idea. Your screenshot shows it off well.

thank you, Robby! I was developing my own bookshelf manager program, with this handy feature (at least for me), but then I discovered Tellico and tried to "merge" my features in it. This is the result!
