for want of a shelf
I realized that many of the books that I have obtained over the past year have not been added to my catalog. I use Delicious Library to track my books, CDs and DVDs so that I can easily browse them and ensure that I know who I lend items to.
What's great is that I can use my video camera as a barcode scanner and the program collects the information (picture of the book/disc, artist/author, dates, reviews, etc.) from the internet. I even sync the lists to my iPod.
The pain of my current circumstance is that 98% of my books are in Canada. Even if I were in Canada, I keep half of them in boxes because I don't have shelf space for them all.
This is what I dream of. . .
