Comparison of cataloging sites

I have been on a quest to catalog my books for ages. I had almost everything in a piece of software called Book Collector, which was decent. But that computer crashed and I lost it. I like the idea of everything being online so I can access if from anywhere. My current solution has been to set up MediaWiki on a private URL and use it's free form entry and category system to get everything in. But the drawback is it can't import information from Amazon or other sites.

There are a number of web based project though that do this. I am thinking of trying them all out and doing a comparison piece on them.

I currently have on my list:

Any other sites I am missing?

Also, for my bibliophiliac friends, what are the things you want to do with a book catalog? (I want to make sure I am covering features other people use or want, but which I don't care about.)

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
