I recently learned about this neat website called Library Thing that enables readers to catalog their own books in a social catalog. Users of the site can tag books, write reviews, and create/join different groups (e.g. Atwoodians). Like Amazon, Library Thing also lets you see recommendations from readers with similar tastes.
Film archivist and all-around media wunderkind Rick Prelinger just posted on his blog, blackoystercatcher, that Google has launched its own social catalog, My Library, which according to Prelinger, “looks a lot like a skeletal version of LibraryThing plus an anonymous corporate skin and minus community spirit.”
