The 7th Heaven for Bibliophiles

Scott Carson of An Examined Life points out one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time. LibraryThing will allow you to catalog your thousands of volumes with ease. If you have more than 200 books (and don't most sentient beings?) you'll have to cough up $10 for a lifetime membership, but hey, it'd be worth it, right?

Not like I don't have a lot of other things to do than catalog my library at the moment, but things this cool deserve to be used.

I just heard about that over the weekend from a friend and I'm very excited about it! I've been keeping a book list of everything I've read for the last 7 years and I would love to put it all into a better and more useful format. I think I might end up using this site, if I can find the time to start putting data into it. I'm hoping that later this week I'll get a chance to play with it more and maybe start putting in what I've read so far this year into it. I also really like that it has a little bloglet thingy that makes it easy to put various selections from your list on Library Thing on your website. I've been thinking something like that would be great to have. The social networking aspects of it are facinating too...

I'm thinking that this could possibly be used by parish libraries as a low cost way to catalog their books.
