I crave data. Do you guys have any APIs?

Indeed we do. Check out the LibraryThing APIs for what we provide.

See also this forum thread.

Much of LibraryThing's data comes from Amazon, who prohibit what would amount to an API to their API. We are working to open source our library-data engine, MARCThing.
