Booking Through Thursday
Do you use any of the online book-cataloguing sites, like Library Thing or Shelfari? Why or why not? (Or . . . do you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking to?? (grin))
If not an online catalog, do you use any other method to catalog your book collection? Excel spreadsheets, index cards, a notebook, anything?
- I use to catalog my books in spreadsheet and than the notebooks, but now I use the "Microsoft Word" from my computer to post all the books that I have read through the years. I have been using this method for nearly 2-3 years now. Unfortunately my old computer broke recently and I lost my access to get on my old computer. So I couldn't get into my old computer to get my 2-3 years worth of saving my book-catalog from my "Microsoft Word". With this new computer I have now, I have to start all over again. But between the time when I was using the "Microsoft Word" from my old record, my friend Darla gotten me into Blog. She show me to do book's reviews on this blog. And than I realized that I could use this blog as my way of catalog my books I've read through the years. It help me to remember what books I've read and which I didn't.
Months ago, another friend invited me to Shelfari, and I use that one too. It been a long while since I updated it though. But many of my friends (both blogger and non blogger) are using it and some updated them often. I have heard of Library Thing, but I don't use it. And I don't know why. But many of my blogger friends are using it too. I wonder...which method is more better useful tools - Shelfari or Library Thing?
