After playing around on BBG for a while, my Fiance and I started wondering if there was a similar site for keeping tracking, rating, discussing, etc. books. If anyone knows of any such site we would greatly appreciate it if you let us know.

That seems interesting, but I was hoping for something that was free. Does anyone usually have issues with going over the 200 book limit?

If you are into giving away books you read and getting others books check out bookmooch.com. It works on a point system, you get .1 for any book you list to give, 1 pt for any book you give and you have to spend a point to request a book from someone. I've been on it a few months now and given 10 books and received 7. You can keep a wishlist and it will alert you when a user makes one of the books you want available.
