Armchair Book Expo - Day 2

Today's question: Let's Collaborate & Listen: The online book community has changed so much over the years. How do we keep up within our own book-sphere as well as within the community as a whole (i.e., libraries, bookstores, authors, publishers, etc.)?

With thousands of books being released daily on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo, the challenge to keep up is monstrous.
