I’ve been messing around with the front page of my site some more. Got things worked out so that the latest entry shows up there, but there are a few other things I had wanted to get as well. One of which was a random sample of the books I own. I tried building a few systems myself, but they never quick worked out they way I wanted. Then somewhere in there I stumbled onto LibraryThing.
It has turned out to be quite nice. Though I really do wish they had some kind of API for imports and edits. Since I’ve all my book in a catalog program on my desktop already, and LT pretty much just does ISBN mass imports, having to go back and tweak all the entries is rather a pain. I’d much rather be building something to link the two. Oh well.
