Local Books iPhone app
LibraryThing created a great iPhone app to help users locate their local bookstores, libraries, and upcoming book events. The app is called Local Books and it includes maps and details for 51,000 venues. LibraryThing notes that the current app does not show inventory for the bookstores and libraries but points out that it would be a great idea.
