: For a while now I've been looking for a way of keeping track of my various lists of books and cultural artifacts. I want a website that offers a web service interface so I can munge my list of books a million ways. This quest of mine has gotten me into all kinds of trouble and I'm still using a series of parallel Amazon wish lists because they at least have a web service interface for getting the list of books.

The latest entrant into this fray is lib.rario.us, which looks just like del.icio.us except it's for keeping track of things that have an ASIN or ISBN. I like the del.icio.us interface a lot (mainly because it's easy to hide it behind a NewsBruiser interface), but lib.rario.us doesn't offer even one tiny web service.

Amazingly, though, the traditional del.icio.us rip-off name proves itself useful for once: it's given me the obvious-in-retrospect idea of just using del.icio.us to keep track of my wish list. Use it as a platform. Why didn't I think of that before? It could work, once I put up something between me and del.icio.us that looks up ISBNs from titles.
