Very addicting...

I live in a house with heaven-only-knows how many books. So for me Library Thing is totally compelling. All you need is an ISBN and it will pull the record into the catalog.

Yes, I love librarything. It will takes me years to get all our books catalogued. It must be the librarian/bibliophile/homeschool mom combination in me.

Wow! I think that within about a minute of my seeing your post and telling my wife about it, she had signed up and begun cataloging whatever was lying on the couch.

And to think that we recently considered paying cash money for a bar code scanner for this very purpose...

Wow, that's cool! My husband has a library degree so our books used to be shelved in vague Dewey order...but not in years, because it's too hard to keep them in one place. I think we have books in every room of the house, including the kitchen, bathrooms, closets, halls, you name it! So if we decide to use this, I'd have to pay for it...I can't imagine having only 200 books to catalog! There have been more than 200 just in one of the kids' rooms...though we got rid of 21 feet of books when we moved to this house, & are getting rid of another 150-200 books before the move we're about to make! (And I'm almost pathetic enough to want to catalog them first so I won't forget what I had!)
