Elsewhere I've begun to catalogue my books at Google.

Hold up! Don't get too far along with this before checking out LibraryThing.com. They are the most astonishing web-company I know and are streets ahead in terms of cataloguing your books online.

They're run by librarians and people who love books, and they seem to introduce a new innovation every couple of weeks. LibraryThing Local is particularly nice - an attempt to map all the libraries and bookshops in the world using the power of the social web.

Sorry to rant - I promise I'm not associated with them in any way - but I jolly well love them and as a librarian I'd much rather support them than the monolith that is Google. You don't have to pay anything unless you want to catalogue more than 200 books, in which case you pay a fiver or something. Have a look, e.g. at http://www.librarything.com/profile/benskinner
