Interesting uses of the LibraryThing data?

For an example, here's what I did: I built a simple Python script to read the tab-delimited format and import it into a simple database and then added cross-links with my blog entries. For instance,
That page links to my personal tags pages as well as the two blog entries that mentioned the book (in which the book data shows up as a small sidebar). It also links to LibraryThing (of course) and Amazon.
Not very fancy, but I think it's pretty cool.
I'm building some reStructuredText-based tools for cross-linking for an entirely different project if they turn out well I might at some point create one for building the cross-links for my blogbook stuff. (This would allow me to do it like touchstones here by writing some simple reStructuredText markup like :book:`Areas of My Expertise` and let my blog build the links when I post.)
Actually, that has my curiosity piqued if there might be some way for LibraryThing to open up a Touchstone API for general usage in this sort of thing... I'm not sure yet how that would work or what LT would have to provide to make it useful and powerful, but I'm sure some ideas might come if I sleep on it.
