Microformats for books

I keep a list of books I have read on this site. I've started linking to individual pages marked up with microformats. This started with a session at IndieWebcamp 2015 in Portland.

Since then I've implemented it on my site and played round with it a bit to match my needs so I though I would document it.

Say I own a copy of Without Fear of Wind or Vertigo, by Vorts Viljandi, here is how it would look:
