Back to School: Automate your citations with Ottobib
If your book has an ISBN (they all do), you can auto-generate a citation with Ottobib.
Whether you need MLA, APA, AMA, or Chicago, Ottobib's got you covered. All you need to do is enter in the ISBN and hit "enter" - and there's the citation you need. Quite the timesaver; I wish that I had something like this when I was in school.

Hmmm... I'm just putting the finishing touches on my thesis at the moment. (Due in three weeks. ARGH!)
I tried a whole bunch of citation software when I was getting into this, but was never really satisfied with anything. Granted, my cites are 99% journal articles, so ottobib wouldn't really help.
But I tried Endnote and ended up just going with a Word document that I write up all my cites in, then copy/paste them out as required. That's done the trick for me. I really didn't see the benefits that Endnote had over this method.
