Do my fellow books addicts out there feel the need to catalog their book collections? Do they use software to do so? I find this idea intriguing but wonder about the work involved. The idea of my library being cataloged is very attractive, but the work involved in doing so is not. Perhaps, I could just plug away at it cataloging a few books each day until I am caught up.
I have come across two online tools that would allow you to accomplish this lofty goal.
– Library Thing was put together by Tim Spalding – a web developer, web publisher and search-engine optimizer based in Portland, Maine. It is in Beta right now and you can catalog up to 200 books for free or get a lifetime membership for $10.
– Reader2 was created by Dmitry Kuchin and seems to emphasize the sharing of book lists more than cataloging all of your books.
Anyone know of other useful tools (online or off) for book cataloging? Thoughts, opinions, and ideas about book cataloging welcome.
