Additionally, I have for the last few years been writing about each book I read, in an attempt to stave off that horrible feeling of having read a book some years ago and not remembering a damned thing about it. I'm no longer doing that with a fountain pen, but instead in LJ entries, which will be linked to from the Library Thing catalog. (I'm not making the entries directly into Library Thing because (a) it doesn't support HTML, (b) the comments aren't text-searchable, and (c) there's no way to make your bookshelf public but your comments private). My book essays -- not reviews, which I post publicly -- will be tagged "books" and will be filtered. If you are interested in reading what I write about each of the books I read (be warned, there will be many spoilers and I will make no attempt to label them), comment here or email me, and I'll add you to what will probably be a very small filter.
