  1. Delicious Library This is the most awesome application ever. $40 is a steal for it. You hold your books, videos, and whatnot up to your iSight (built-in) camera and the program reads the bar code. It's a terrific inventory program and as a homeschooler I can't live without it. And now it has an accompanying free iPhone app so you can transfer your library DIRECTLY to your iPhone. (I used to have to export my library to Excel and then bring it in through another app.) I'm not connected with this company and I make not a red cent for talking about them, but this company makes m
  2. Shelves is an Android copy of the popular Delicious Library application for Apple devices. I've been looking for a good Android-based cataloger for some time and this free application looks pretty good. You can download it from the Android Market. If it is anywhere close to the one for Apple and iPhone about which I have heard rave reviews, this should be a very useful program!
  3. Who knew? I sure didn't. I only finally tried it (I belong to GR and ShF) because a friend uses it on her blog. Thank you so much dear Katrina!!! http://sunshineandlemonade.blogspot.com/ This is a most efficient way to track our reading....what I want to buy, what needs to be requested and from which county library, what's been returned. I am loving this. Katherine in Atl
  4. Library lists, Amazon wish list, book club lists, organizing books at home? I don't do this every week but I did yesterday and it was a few hours. Of course, it is one of my favorite activities but it sure takes a lot of time.
  5. HI ALL! We are in the process of moving our books (actual books that you read :001_smile:). Actually we are moving all 4 kids around and redoing everyone's room. IN that process, I am giving up the school room which is more of the collective junk room and not where any actual work gets done. One bookcase to each child's room. Thus, I had the brilliant idea to organize the books. :001_huh: Any ideas?? The bookshelves while in separate rooms will be open for all. I wanted to have a system where the books go by possibly time period, genre, and subject. Or at least where all the scienc
  6. I have approx 1000 books that I'd like to catalog. I have a quecat and I had put it into HST+. then my backup crashed and obliterated it all.:crying: The notion of quecat-ing all these books is over-whelming, and HST+ annoys me by having one section where I can look up by ISBN and another where I can look by subject or grade level and so forth. I want ONE place to have it all, kwim? So how do you all do it? My shelves are very organized, by subjects. But I would like a one click option vs pulling stacks of boks off the shelf when I need to gather for whatever reason.
  7. Is there a place/program like Library Thing where I can keep track of my DVDs? Prefer web-based, but will do a download. Want basic and inexpensive. The ability to use the bar code scanner is preferred. Thanks, Pam
  8. How do you do it? I'm starting to have a large number of books, because I visit the thrift shop and they've got 'em there and they're so cheap and you just can't beat the price. I got the Usborne Internet Linked History Encyclopedia for half price a while back. The most recent trip I got a Kingfisher book about the universe that's hardcover and practically brand new, plus a bunch of DK books, and some books about snakes & things. Just kids' paperbacks, most of them, but still informative. They're multiplying. Like rabbits. It's getting obnoxious to try to keep track of them, to figure out
  9. I keep buying books that we have already. I only seem to run into the problem when confronted with books at the used bookstore or Goodwill, you know, cheap ones. :glare: Do you keep a book inventory? How do you manage it? I saw something with a scanner online a few months ago - anyone have that? Do you keep a printable list when you go book shopping? I need some tips on how not to re-buy books! And part of my problem is that the nearest used bookstore is a 45 minute drive away, so I can't just pop back in after I check for the book at home.
  10. Like many of yours, our homeschool library has become very extensive. Similarly, like many of you, we have rearranged our books quite a few times. We plan to have our bookcase arrangement perfected just after our youngest child graduates! :D But I wanted to have a discussion about cataloging our books. We purchased Readerware and a scanner some years ago based on a recommendation that MomsintheGarden received here, IIRC. It's a nice program, but we never made it past about 1000 books before we lost our way. There were a few issues that hampered our use of that tool. Recently, I've t
  11. I really need to organize my books -- not only the ones I own, but the ones I want to own (or borrow). And I want to do it all in one place. So I am looking for a program or website that will allow me to enter an ISBN and catalog my books -- grouping them by tag (category) and also noting their physical location (i.e. bookshelf). In addition I would like to be able to keep lists of books I want to buy (while tagging them by subject as well) and be able to keep a list of books that I want that are at one of our local libraries (also tagged by subject). For example, I see a cool book l
  12. Just want to make sure you knew about this great and FUN tool!! www.librarything.com to see how it can work for you, here is a link to my cataloged library. It's a really awesome tool!
  13. I finally found something I want for birthday/Christmas - Library Software w/barcode reader! Now I'm trying to decide which one. Can you all help? I think I've narrowed it down to LibraryThing and ReaderWare. I suppose I'd be open to something else but from what I could find these were the only 2 that were close to what I wanted. Neither is just right but both have their good points. ReaderWare pros: can also get CD & DVD apps - DH would really enjoy this data is stored locally - I own the app and the data no matter what happens to the company (biggie for me) Fairly q
  14. I think it was about $75. Scanner had capability (on computer?) to display the book cover and info. It's for organizing a home library collection. Thanks for your help, I'd like to get it for a gift for my dad, possibly my brother too.
  15. Keep track of their personal books? Short of typing it all out on a piece of paper what does everyone do? I am buying books I already have because there are just so very many!!
  16. I'm looking for software where I can scan in my books by bar code and have a listing of all of them. I'd like to be able to categorize them by historical period. Any recommendations for me? Thanks, Staci
  17. Can you use a Palm for this? Would Homeschool Tracker Plus work for this? And best yet - is there a tool out there that would enable me to "have it all" - the best of both these worlds? A Palm that could "communicate" with HST+ on my pc? Or something of the sort? Please excuse my ignorance. I am soooo computer/tech-illiterate. Thanks for any suggestions along these lines. The most important thing to me currently is a compact storage spot to keep record of my personal, growing library. I cannot remember what books I have - and I constantly shop at garage sales, half-price stores, thrift
  18. I started entering titles on Library Thing, & I love that, but...after the move, etc....I'm having trouble knowing what has & hasn't been entered, kwim? So I started a spreadsheet type doc & have the same trouble. I'm thinking of assigning ea book a #, writing that # in the book itself, & listing that in my spreadsheet/LT. That way, *if* I have 2 copies of Charlotte's Web, I'll know. I won't have to just *wonder*--is this a 2nd copy or did I already enter it??? What do you think? Is this sufficient, or do I need something more Dewey decimal based? I'd rather face t
  19. Please give me all the pros and cons you know about either of these options. Can you backup your Library Thing database to a CD? Also, would it be readable by another program? If yes, what program? I ask because I am trying to decide whether to use Library Thing or buy Book Collector to catalog our books. Thanks!
  20. I know there a WTM group there, but I was wondering if there are more LibraryThing users on these boards. Here's us. :seeya:
  21. My husband talked with another homeschooling dad this afternoon, and their family uses Shelfari to track the books their children read. The kids read a book, and write a short review online. The book (and review) is then added to a Shelfari widget that they post on the sidebar of their blog. I thought this would add a bit of fun factor to an otherwise mundane task. Our kids have their own blogs, and love to add new things to them. Has anyone used this before? http://www.shelfari.com/ Thanks!
  22. I have a LOT of books. I would love to have a computer list that would have a place for which child has read, loaned out, sold but read, etc. Do you just make your own spreadsheets? I have a Mac. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  23. I found a rare specimen: A truly Mac-native, ingenious application that makes sense and works well. Delicious Library I think this is even cooler than LibraryThing. Web publishing will come (I was told by customer service) in the next version, due out very soon. If you purchase now, you will get that upgrade free. One of the very coolest things about this program is its ability to scan barcodes from your built-in camera. No barcode scanner to buy! The interface is very similar to iTunes. Also, it is very linked to Amazon. I can decide to sell a book with a couple of clicks
  24. I just read the thread about Plaid Dad's librarything on his blog. So I went to the website to check it out. Maybe cuz I'm sick and my brain is fuzzy I was kind of puzzled. What exactly does librarything do for one? It sounds really onerous to enter all that info about one's books into it and to what purpose? I must be missing something. I have thousands of books. I am really compulsive about it and need to cut down and give away lots of them. Would library thing really help me get organized about my books or would it just add to the chore of sorting and winnowing?
