we have a few thousand books between the 2 of us. this is a massive project… especially since most of our books live in the 20 or so file boxes stacked in the living room at the moment… waiting for the overly busy husband to get to finishing the bookcases that have been in construction for over a year.
our books fall into 3 major categories. Christian Reference. Art/Craft books. and Sci-Fi/Fantasy (these have their own bookshelves in the bedroom and will get cataloged much quicker.)
this project is even a bigger task because we have a LARGE collection of older and out of print (and many not originally printed in the US) Christian reference books. these take a lot more hunting and looking to find a match in the library thing system.
