LibraryThing

This was an app I became aware of last semester.  It is a social networking site for book lovers.  You can check it out here.  It allows you to catalog, rate, and review all your books.  You can then compare catalogs with other users and connect with like-minded folks.  I chose this because it is a Web 2.0 service that is geared towards book fiends.  They also provide widgets for you to add to your own blogs and web pages to showcase your catalog.

    Very neat, Ben. Also an example of crowdsourcing where is it pooled expertise: people who read books, know books.
