Exactly how I do my booklist, except that I've also got fields for
author(s) & description, plus one to get round the fact that thumbnail
images can live in one of 2 places, and I've not spotted a pattern to
which one they use.

When I eventually have my production site running as Zope, then each
book will be a published object and will accept comments etc.
