As many customers are aware I have a wide variety of interests, one of which is reading.
I have long recommended LibraryThing http://bit.ly/1hyvyID to customers as an excellent method to catalogue books read, as well as the ability to review books, read others reviews, create wish lists and participate in Early Reviewers/Member Giveaways (although many books listed here each month are not available in Australia).
I only noticed today that the LibraryThing free service is limited to cataloguing 200 books, but costs only US$10.00 p.a., or any amount from US$19.00 up for a Lifetime Membership to add unlimited books.
Despite predictions to the contrary “the overall number of books sold dipped from 56.6 million in 2012 to 54.1 million last year (2103), a drop in value from $978 million to $917 million” (Jason Steger, Literary Editor, The Age, 4 January 2014).

I am old-fashioned in so much as I love the feel of real books, turning pages etc. At the same time I read e-Books on my Kindle, particularly work-related material.
IMHO The Amazon Kindle Device(s) is one of the best electronic inventions ever!
