Amazon provides us with RSS feeds to help us stay up-to-date with their latest products and offerings. Amazon now offers RSS feeds for their Bestsellers, Hot New Releases, Most Gifted, Most Wished For and Movers & Shakers lists.
Unfortunately finding these RSS feeds on the Amazon website can be a real pain and that’s why I’ve consolidated a list of all the RSS feeds for different categories.
These feeds are updated as frequently as they are updated on Amazon. You can subscribe to these by navigating to the list page that you are interested in, and clicking on the subscription link next to the RSS Feed symbol. You can subscribe not only to store-level lists such as “Books Bestsellers” or “DVD Hot New Releases” but also category-level lists. For example, if you’re into Crime, Thrillers & Mystery books and want to keep up on the latest bestsellers, simply navigate to Bestsellers in Crime, Thrillers & Mystery Books and subscribe.

How to subscribe to these feeds?
There are a variety of feed readers available to you for free on the Web that falls into five distinct categories, depending on how you want to read your feeds. Here they are:
Web-based Feed Readers
If you want to read all your feeds from within your browser, you want a Web-based feed reader (these are the most convenient and easy to set up). An example of Web-based feed readers is Feedly.
Desktop Feed Readers
If you want to read all your feeds separate from your browser and have something actually installed onto your system, you want a desktop feed reader. These usually come with more powerful features than the Web-based feed readers, but are definitely for the more technologically advanced crowd.
Browser Built-In Feed Readers
There are some browsers out there on the market that come with baked-in feed readers; there are also a ton of extensions and plug-ins that provide this functionality for you. Examples of browser built-in feed readers would be Firefox’s Live Bookmarks, Opera, and Internet Explorer. These are the three most easy to use browsers for baked in feeds.
Email-Based Feed Readers
If you would like all of your feeds delivered to you via email, you’re going to want to check out an email-based feed reader. Examples of email-based feed readers are Mozilla Thunderbird and Google Alerts. You can adjust the rate of emails you get with each one of these email-based feed readers.
Mobile Feed Readers
More and more, people are getting their Web search content as they’re out and about through a variety of mobile devices. If you are one of these people, you might want to check out one of these feed readers/access services made especially for mobile devices: these include the afore-mentioned Feedly, as well as Flipboard or Twitter.
