Abebooks acquires Library Thing

Two of the biggest trends on the need currently are social networking and wikis. Now, Abebooks has completed a purchase that incorporates social networking and user created content (a la wikis). The site, LibraryThing, enjoys 35,000 users who utilize the site for cataloguing and social networking. Although users have only catalogued 2.7 million books (roughly 77 per user), the site is only free up to 200 books. (News story)
