Google adds My Library feature to Book Search

Google has added a "My Library" feature to Google Book Search. From the Google Book Search Blog:
"With the launch of the My Library feature in Book Search, I can create my own customized library online, and quickly search my collection to figure out which book I'm looking for. Once it's created, I can share my library with my friends and see what's in their collections."
I've had a couple of tabs open in my browser to some old Mormon Science / Theology books for a while now just waiting for some time to peruse them (you'd think I could just add a bookmark, but no...then I'd never get back to them...strange brain I have) This will let me tuck them into my "library". You can import a list of ISBNs into your library, and each library has an RSS feed associated with it, so you can follow what others are adding to their personal libraries.
Not quite Library Thing, but useful nonetheless. I've found Google Book Search is a pretty good addition to the old genealogy tool belt.
