Find Free, Local Books on Your iPhone

I've never written about iPhone apps on this blog, in part because in my part of the world an iPhone is about as useful as a cup and string, but I'm sharing one today that I read about because I think some readers will find it useful. Local Books (download link) is a free iPhone application that helps you locate libraries and bookstores in your area that have copies of the books you're searching for. Local Books draws this information from Library Thing. Library Thing is a crowd-sourced catalog of books.

Local Books could be a useful application for quickly locating available copies of the books you want.
