A popular social cataloging site calling itself "the world's largest book club," LibraryThing links readers, authors, libraries, and publishers in offering shared book catalogs and metadata ([Marc Cormier] and Dublin Core records) as well as social networking features. A free account allows for "cataloging" up to 200 books, but greater usage requires a paid personal account. AbeBooks (owned by Amazon) now owns a 40% share.
