Script to Extract from Website
This is a bit off topic but I'm trying to create an essential reading list for myself and have come across this site:
Lists of Bests
What I am hoping to do is make a compilation using books that others have in their list, such as this one:
jsherry's "Recommended Reading List for the Well Educated Adult" on Lists of Bests
I've now entered 200 book titles, including author and what not, and it's taking too long. So now the question is, can I make an easy script to extract the book titles (and maybe even the links to amazon that they have) from certain lists? I'm not even sure if this is legal (if it's not, I apologize in advance and don't need to know how to do it )

You mean you want to grab the titles from the page on Amazon? That's perfectly legal. Use wget, something like:
wget -O books-page1.html http://www.listsofbests.com/list/2366-recommended-reading-list-for-the-well-educated-adult?name=comment_page&page=1
