Comprehensive collection, with links to all common book sources

mjoe7 LibraryThing is a fantastic online book cataloging service that will help you keep track of your library and make it available to you at all times. It has a neat and tidy user interface. The only drawback is that I can't seem to get rid of the other "Collections" types that I don't need. GoodReads has a rebound to that.
