If anyone is interested.
I am almost through with about 1/2 of my non-fiction books. have 1/2 to go and then all my fiction, which is about the same amount as 1/2 of my non-fiction. so, I guess I’m about 1/3 of the way there! 6 years ago
OOhhh, I loved this. I love lists and books. Two of my favorite things. I still need to add so MANY more! 6 years ago
Have been trying to inventory my books on Library Thing for about 2 years now. This year I want to finish it! I am still stuck in World History! 6 years ago
I’m not sure if I’ll use it, but it was fun to indulge the book nerd in me and list all my books somewhere. :) 6 years ago
I now have 158 books cataloged on librarything. Slow and steady. Mow if only I can figure out a better system for keeping track of what has been cataloged and what books of read… As someone who owns a lot of non-fiction I’m frequently guilty of reading half a book (or bits and pieces) but never picking up again to finish it. 7 years ago
Wow I’m such a nerd! My :cueCat arrived and I love it; I’ve already started cataloging my books! So much fun lol 7 years ago
I’ve ordered a CueCat so this will be much easier than manually entering every book, epecially with the size of my library! My significant other is even interested in doing the same! It will be interesting to see just who has more books… ignoring magazines, movies and music, as he wins those categories :) 7 years ago
I’ve used up all my free space so I’ll get a life time account on pay day so I can carry on with this, I like how you can pick the book cover or scan your own in so that it’s the right one. 7 years ago
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. 7 years ago
I know I have more, I’m just not sure where I put them. And I have several others I haven’t read, will add them once I’ve read them all. Will write a review even, if I can spare the time or the inclination ;)
Apparently a free account limits one’s catalog to 200 books only. Not sure whether I’d pay $25 just to catalog all of my books. We’ll see how this goes. But for now, I love this site to bits and highly recommend all book lovers to check it out! 8 years ago
I wonder if there’s a way I can read and read without feeling guilty (and make money too!). 8 years ago
