What happens in the blink of an eye? I've just started listening to Maclom Gladwell's book Blink and it is fantastic thus far.

The side of the page features a new block with content from Library Thing. Library Thing is Tim Spalding's tool for allowing bibliophiles and compulsive organizers to have a single, online, place to keep track of book collections.

One of the first would be the ability to comment on and tag books that are not in my library.
