More Boox

Inspired by playing with Booxter, I put together a tool to log in to Amazon and scrape my "books you own" pages. In theory it should work for other people (it just takes username and password on the command line, and outputs the ASINs and titles to standard output.) I now have 200 books filed in booxter, and have dug up an old barcode scanner and ps2->usb converter, confirmed that it works with the mac, and am about ready to start a major filing effort...
