Is anyone going to offer anything constructive? I feel very much for anyone who loses traffic from a Google change, but at this point in time there's no value in any further commiserating.
Here are some answers to specific points the opening post raised:
1. Dedicated mobile sites are not considered duplicate content in any spammy/penalty sense. There is plenty of information online from Google about how best to execute - and no reports I've seen about a problem.
2. Yes, you can link to books on Amazon without a problem - yours or others. Just offer something different than what the Amazon page offers, and as the author I'm sure you already do that.
