It’s bookselling for the instant gratification generation. Watching an author interview or segment on a book that catches your attention? TiVo now has an online menu onscreen that allows you to buy books directly from Amazon—using your TV.

One question though—will there now be a mail order equivalent of the ill-planned late night phone call? Have one wild and crazy night that ends in front of your TV, get mysterious books delivered (and charged) to you for weeks after.
Maybe there should be a breathalyser apparatus?
