One format I've been using for this kind of thing is a python source
file which contains function calls looking something like this:

Book(title = "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy",
     author = "Douglas Adams",
     year = "can't remember",
     note = "Don't Panic!")

You can then parse it with execfile and a suitably defined function
"Book".
