It's that time of year when my family and I trade lists of things we could get for one another if we haven't already found something on our own. We usually just do a running email thread, and it devolves into sub threads excluding the person of interest, where all the other family members claim what they're getting or have gotten for the person who isn't on the cc:list. Until of course someone (Mom) replies on the wrong thread, and spills the beans. ;) [more inside]
Will LibraryThing allow me to maintain a list of books to read with comments about why I want to read them? Is there another book/media management site that will let me do that? [more inside]
So I used to use Kaboodle, but it's plagued with bugs lately, and I can't access my account or my wishlists-- or make a new account. Does any one know of a Wishlist website that lets you add and sort subcategories/subsections when adding items? (Bonus points: Has a bookmarklet/browswer button). [more inside]
I just tried to purchase something for someone from their Amazon.co.uk wishlist. I pressed the ‘Add to Basket’ button next to the item, which then turned into a ‘Proceed to Checkout’ button. I pressed this, then it asked me to log in, then it prompted me to select a delivery address. Which is stupid, as I clearly want it to be delivered to whatever address the person who set up the wishlist specified. But that’s not an option. What am I doing wrong here?
It's quite possible I'm just being unusually stupid here, but I've put in three attempts of a half hour or so each and cannot figure out how to edit the "About Me" text that shows up to the left of my Amazon wishlist. It's not that there's anything urgent'y awful there. It just lists my hometown as 6 years out of date and my job as eight years out of date. It's driving me nuts and I'd like to kill it with fire. Where in hell is the page where I edit this?
I own a Kindle associated with my Amazon account. For his birthday this year my son received a Kindle Fire, which we decided to also associate with my account so that he can share access to the books I already own. All was well until he realized he could add things to a wish list. I took his first round of wishes and added them to a new "Son's Wishlist," and when he's shopping for books my son can choose which wishlist he wants to add them to. But physical items can apparently only be added to the default wishlist (mine) and I haven't found a way on the Fire for him to move them. As a result I regularly find myself sorting dozens of collectible cards and other items from my list to his. Have any of you found a better way of dealing with this?
I would like to have a site or app where I can list stuff I want to buy from many different places - ideally from any vendor on the web - and people can buy it for me without them getting my address. Does such an animal exist?

I listen to a lot of music. I also just have a lot of music that I have laying around on my computer waiting to be listened to that never does. There's also a lot of music that I want to have that I never really get around to buying/downloading. How can I organize my listening to make sure all my music gets some love? [more inside]

I'd like to set up a honeymoon registry (aka vacation wishlist) for my 07/07/07 wedding, but none of the online ones that I've seen are to my taste. Is there any easy way to create my own, perhaps with a tool similar to DropCash? [more inside]
What web-based services for tracking want lists (or really arbitrary lists of things, though I'd probably use it most for books and bands) are there? I don't want something tied to a particular vendor. Simplicity and ease of use are paramount.
I'm considering writing a metawishlist program that would allow you to save items, descriptions and price information from a bookmarklet and add metadata/tags ala del.icio.us to your items. I find that I have a lot of things I run across that I want, and so I have wishlists scattered from Amazon to ThinkGeek, and lots of other items on sites that don't have wishlist functionality that I lose track of... I think that a central repository would be cool, and the social aspect might have possibilities also. What do you guys think? What other features should something like this have to make it a good app?

Amazon question. I once read the Amazon Hacks book but I don't remember if it covers this one, or how to do it. I'd like to be able to link to specific items in my wishlist. I've found one trick but it relies on the item number. Since this number changes each time the wishlist is updated, any link made this way won't last long. SMI
Is there a way to collect all your different site wishlists into one place OR into one list that you can then keep on your own site? Am I imagining the future or is this already out there? It seems like I've seen it before, but I can't for the life of me remember where.
