Social library networking site LibraryThing

Although it's been in existence for some time this site was new to me. LibraryThing is intended as a social networking site based around books; not e-Books but real good old-fashioned paper ones. I catalogued our humble library of web development, usability and accessibility books. On the subject of bibliography, here at Technosite we maintain the Discapnet bibliography database of disability-related books, in Spanish.

Unfortunately it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of accessibility (main content in a a frame with no description, for example). On the other hand I can't pretend there isn't room for improvement in the Discapnet bibliography.

As I say, our catalogue is on the site now if you want to take a look: http://www.librarything.com/catalog/technosite.
