LibroSpot lets you search through Amazon’s online catalogue, save the ones you choose, and write a short book review. It also shows you a thumbnail image of each book. You’re given a url address for your “book log” so that others can view what you’ve chosen and reviewed. You can also make lists of books for a “wish list.”

Obviously, you don’t need to have students keep a list of books they read via high-tech means — a posterboard list on the wall, a sheet in a student’s binder, book “posters” hanging in the classroom — are all simple ways to do the same thing.

An online list, though, can provide a bit of a change of pace.
