The Library Thing
Better question - should I be cataloging my own personal books? I really don't have that many, but if I start now, then it won't be such a daunting task, given that our propensity to add to our library is ever-growing.
The site allows listings by author, title or even the ISBN. LibraryThing makes it really easy:
You don't have to type everything in. LibraryThing gets all the right data from Amazon.com and over 75 libraries around the world, including the Library of Congress.
Just click on the book to add it to your catalog.
Also at the site, you can join forums, group chats, and it even has an "Unsuggester" which "will give you humorous recommendations of books you probably wouldn't enjoy."
Do I want the world to be peeking into my dusty, unorganized and knicknacked library shelves (the same thing I do when visiting other people's houses)?
Depending on your take on it, I suppose the site could be an extremely clever use of technology, or just another insidious creep into your personal space (and probably both).
Did I mention LibraryThing has a blog widget that lets other folks see what's on your shelves?
I think I love you
You make everything
