I just changed to the flash based ad sidebar. It lets you pick different keywords without reloading the page by clicking on the top tab.
I also continued to focus on Technology Books, picking some specific categories to try and exclude the certification and training books that I find less interesting. I then excluded Microsoft and mcse as keywords, and ended up with Cisco certification so I excluded them as well, and it looks like a more reasonable selection now.
