OpenLibrary looks interesting.  (Much discussion here.)

I may be out of my league but should think Anatoly Liberman’s ‘Oxford Etymologist’ blog here would be of interest.

Was the question about word/language sites or book sites?  I assumed the latter based on your mention of LibraryThing, but now it seems unclear.  The two are very different.

The question was open; all replies cheerfully accepted.
