Book Collection Database Software

I have a confession. I'm a media junkie. I have, roughly estimating, a crapload of books, music, and movies. I'm looking for some software that will help me organize them and keep track of exactly what I have. I'm thinking along the lines of a database for each type of media. If worst comes to worst I'll make a spreadsheet in OpenOffice.

Any recommendations?

out of that search (boy I love freshmeat!) this one looks the most useful to you:
however it is shareware not gpl.

there is another one I know- I just can't think of the name, google is fruitless: gtkalog? gtk catalog? something. came on the mandrake cds, and I have slackware installed so I can't check.

TELLICO, man !
Very efficient ! you can also import info from Amazon with it !

I use it to keep my book/cds/dvds:tapes collection.

Since you've got ubuntu, have a search in the deb repositories..

If you are ready to experiment with new things then try using GNOWSYS, acronym for Gnowledge Networking and Organizing SYStem. It is an object oriented database with each object provided by an unique URL. It can store both data and meta-data of objects. Objects can be classified according to subclass/superclass relation.
This will help in organising your data the way you want.
