I had an idea recently to make a Hub about every single book I've read. I would have a picture of the book, my thoughts on it, and perhaps an introduction. I figured that I could have the Amazon Ad Capsule with it.
I have read at least 60 books that I would want to mention in the article. I feel that it may both be too long and too ad spammy. I could break it up into different hubs, but I feel like it would still appear to be over promotional. What do you guys think?
I would suggest one or a few books per hub. otherwise the hub will be so slow loading people will never see it!
This sounds like a solid idea for a Hub! So long as you're adding substantial unique information (i.e. your personal thoughts on the books) and your Hub is not written exclusively to sell those books rather than inform the reader, you should be fine.
Also, if you group the books into several Hubs, you may want to consider ordering them by genre. Doing so will allow you to target fans of specific types of books (such as literature lovers, sci-fi fans, mystery readers, romance addicts, etc) and appeal to their interests.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?
