NEW YORK (AP) - Amazon.com, the country's largest online bookseller, will itself be the subject of a book coming out in 2013.
    
Bloomberg Businessweek writer Brad Stone has signed with Little, Brown and Company for a work on "the spectacular rise" of Amazon.com. The book will be released in May 2013 and is currently untitled, Little, Brown announced Tuesday.
    
Stone's book is not authorized by Amazon, but Little, Brown executive editor John Parsley said in a statement that Stone would draw upon his "unprecedented access and 14 years covering tech companies." Parsley says Stone, who's a former technology reporter for The New York Times, will provide a "fly-on-the-wall narrative."
