Best Source for Book Descriptions?

I'm currently working on a research project that will lead to a written product (an article or report, either published in a magazine/journal, or released online). I want to create an appendix to the report that has the names and descriptions for books referenced in the report. This will be an extensive list, so I don't want to create the descriptions myself. Can I use the product description that is put out by the publisher (the one that is used by Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other book sellers)? If not, what are my options?

Cheap ways to improve apartment living

What are some relatively inexpensive things I can order via Amazon Prime to improve the design/quality of life in a studio apartment? I'm a single dude and my place still feels as cold and faceless as a furnished room, but I don't have the cash or the vision to do a full-scale overhaul.

Amazon gift return complications

Amazon gift returns: Several questions. If the buyer (gift giver) did not mark the item as a gift at the original purchase time, how long does the gift recipient have to return the item, as long as they tell Amazon it was a gift at the time of return? Also, does a gift recipient need to pay return shipping? One more... if there was an Amazon shipping label created to return a specific item from an order -- but that label is never used -- can a different person later then create another shipping label & return the item for a refund?

How to search Hule and Netflix at the same time?

Is there a site that searches all the flat-rate streaming sites (Netflix, Hulu, and now Amazon prime) for a particular movie/tv show? Or, better, that's like Instant Watcher for more than Netflix? I realize I can search all the sites separately.

Inexpensive all-clad 4-Quart saute pan or rank impostor?

Is the "All Clad Stainless Steel 4-Quart Brown and Braise Pan" ($120 at Amazon) the same as the "All-Clad Stainless-Steel 4-Quart Saute Pan" ($225), just with a different lid? One reviewer says it's exactly the same, but the other reviewer says it has the diameter of their "3-quart saute pan" ($200), and is deeper. Who's right? And why is it so much less expensive than either of the sauté pans? Is it the accent aigu? I like the domed lid and the low price, but mostly want the large evenly-heating expanse of bare metal you get from All Clad. My turn-ons include braising turkey thighs and long walks on the beach.

Help me get Amazon to play along

Amazon --my sister self-published a book. She has an interest in selling it on amazon. Neither of us is interested in the pro-level of $40/month. Is there an option I'm overlooking? Alternatively can we do the $40 one month, get the book in and then drop back to the 99c/sale level?

Tax implications of selling on Amazon

If I sell off some of my books on Amazon, is that income I need to pay taxes on? I ask because I'll generally be selling my books at a loss - they're books I bought for myself, am done reading and want out of my spare bedroom. It's not exactly the product of a business plan.

my book opinions, let me show you them...everywhere

LibraryThing, Shelfari, Goodreads, BookJetty, Amazon, even Facebook....am I missing any? I'm just beginning to dip my toes into book reviewing, and exploring the features of these various sites to see which might work best for me. What I'd like to know is, is there a web service (a la Twitterfeed or somesuch) that allows one to post a book review to all of these places at once? Because that would be handy.

Got a $5 credit from Amazon.com's mp3 department. What are some l-o-n-g cuts (or albums comprised of lengthy tunes) that will give me some serious bang for my buck?
