How many books do you share with Thomas Jefferson?
You can easily find out, at librarything.com. This innovative site, mentioned here before, is an online site where people can catalog their libraries, not according to formal library rules, but according to what makes sense for them. They can also search other peoples libraries, post comments etc.
A LibraryThing group with the catchy name, I See Dead People's Books, coordinated the effort to add Jefferson's collection to LibraryThing. They have also completed Tupac Shakur's library, and are working on a number of others!
