muse: n. a source of inspiration

Do you read? Do you own books?

You do? Really?

Then you should check out (ha ha) LibraryThing. You can use it to catalog your books (you can enter up to 200 books for free, after that there’s a pretty modest fee) and use it to perform search functions or get recommendations for other books.

You can also use it to find other people with similar tastes and find out what they’re reading.

This is an excellent example of social networking software used for a really cool purpose.
