LibraryThing, Shelfari, Goodreads, BookJetty, Amazon, even Facebook....am I missing any? I'm just beginning to dip my toes into book reviewing, and exploring the features of these various sites to see which might work best for me. What I'd like to know is, is there a web service (a la Twitterfeed or somesuch) that allows one to post a book review to all of these places at once? Because that would be handy.

I often find myself wanting to search sites like netflix and amazon with greater granularity than the sites currently offer. For example, I'd like to find every highly-rated thriller that takes place in another country and is available used for $5.00. Or if I'm searching netflix, I would want to find every foreign mystery that is rated at four stars or higher and is rated pg-13 or lower. Are there third-party clients or scripts that will accomplish these or similar tasks?

I want to put some code on my site (Wordpress) displaying images of books and other Amazon products, and link the images, with my Associates key, back to Amazon. Amazon offers several ways to do this. I don't like them. A batch of WP plugins offer to do this, but the ones I've tested are all overkill, if they actually work. I can handle the code, but where do I get the images? I've seen a few sites that pull book cover images from a secure image site at Amazon. How does that work?
