This 20 page book was made using Shutterfly. They gave it to me as a "freebie" because I was a frequent user of competitor MyPublisher, whom they bought and then closed. I had used Shutterfly in the past and I must say their compositional software is much better today. I have had very good experience using AdoramaPix as well. They feature very usable "drag-and-drop" software and they will make books with as few as 14 pages. But I have to say, I still miss MyPublisher.

I've made a few photobooks but never thought of doing one on my cameras. My collection changes shape. I tire of a camera and it goes. I guess I'll do one anyway. The kids need to know what they're worth when I go!
You're absolutely right - a photo book can only catch a snapshot of your collection at a moment in time. But that's a whole lot better than having no overview at all! I do the same sort of documentation with my firearms.
The Great Gats (with apologies to F. Scott Fitzgerald) is an 8x8 inch book made using AdoramaPix. My collections change from time-to-time, rendering the books out of synchronization. But, they are still a nice way to overview what you have collected and a great place to explain why you coveted particular pieces.
An interesting side note: Shutterfly has access to (at least some) of the MyPublisher files and can make them available for Shutterfly publishing. I just did this recently with a business-history album. Consult Shutterfly customer service for more information.
