I checked out Good Reads (http://www.goodreads.com/) and Shelfari (http://www.shelfari.com/). These web sites allow you to import your list of books which may be tempting but I am a creature of habit so I think I will stick with librarything. I use the Amazon wish list to keep track of books I want to own in the future. I do this for two reasons - 1) Amazon allows me to add items from any web site to my wish list with just a click of a button; 2) my family is frequently stumped when they are looking to buy a gift for me and I know from experience they are more likely to buy what I want if I make it easy for them to purchase the items.
I am looking forward to pulling out my Cat scanner and adding new books after my birthday on Thursday and Christmas. Bring on the books!
