Does anyone know of a decent self-hosted alternative to GoodReads? I don't care about any of the social features, I just want something that lets me track my reading lists and discover other books by the same author.

1) I've used GCStar in the past, but it's no longer maintained.

2) Try ReaDB. "Self-hosted privacy-respecting alternative to LibraryThing and Goodreads. Import and export books from a spreadsheet or as JSON. Fill in metadata by querying the Google Books API."

See screenshot below. Note: Edited to fit better here. This is ReaDB running on one of my boxes. It required only a few steps to build. However, I haven't tested operation yet.
