Scrounging for holiday reading

Someone a while back asked me if they could use their blog to keep a list of books/dvd/music they owned and let their friends request to borrow any of those items.

Mediachest does this for you in the wide world, but there is certainly value in doing this in a safe/known/trusted community.

Seeing as we don't have such a thing just yet for me to search around and find suitable holiday reading books to borrow…does anyone have any good holiday reading ideas that I can borrow?

I'm into more or less any adventure/thriller/sci-fi/fantasy type books.

It would be quite cool if we could just let people entry a bunch of ISBN/ASIN number into a list without having to rate/review them and let them publish just what they own. Sometimes just seeing what someone owns is just as interesting as seeing a review of stuff they own as you are more likely to get a bigger list of non-reviewed items than you are reviewed items because it is just so much easier.
You could flag an item as borrowable if you want to let people request to borrow it.

I could go on, but basically it would work like mediachest but in a local/trusted environment.
