Booktour is a website for listing, and finding forthcoming events such as author tours/appearances.

The chairman of the site is Chris Anderson (of Wired magazine, author of The Long Tail). The site is abesed in San Francisco and aims to: In just a few minutes any author can create a page showcasing their biography, books, and upcoming engagements. Listing new events is as easy as answering a few questions. Publishers, booksellers, and events managers can upload tour dates en masse using a simple Excel spreadsheet.

It is, at this stage, very US centric. Although I have my postcode in as 3127 and my address as melbourne, australia I still get notifications for melbourne in the US.

Wonder if I can add library events to it?
