A #question for all you wonderful Littens out there. I'm putting all my books in #Libib, a #catalogue #ap, and want to know how other people deal with unusual situations. A major reason for keeping my #homelibrary this way is to avoid buying something I already own, in the thrall of book sale fever, so I want to #catalog my #ebooks and #audiobooks as well as individual titles within a collection. My #library has 1000's of titles. Ideas? Share pls.

BookishMarginalia I have no advice to share, just want to wish you luck! 💜 6y
LauraBrook I use LibraryThing to catalog my home library. It's been about 9 years now, and while I still sometimes buy duplicates it's less than it used to be now that I can look things up. I've heard good things about libib, but don't know anyone who uses it. I'm curious to see what others use/say! 6y
Lcsmcat @LauraBrook How do you catalog books? 6y

LauraBrook And, I've got 1000s too, so I know it's not something you want to do more than once. It took me a week or so for the initial input and it's been pretty easy ever since. Fingers crossed you can find something that works for you! 6y
LauraBrook @Lcsmcat Usually by ISBN, and I use Amazon.com for a database most of the time. (This is all through LibraryThing, by the way.) Plus, I use tags for a lot of stuff, and you can sort by data field, and do searches in your library. If you go to LibraryThing.com and look me up (LauraBrook) you can look through my library and poke around. 6y
Lcsmcat Thanks! 6y
Rachbb3 I categorized mine on Goodreads and it has helped but I still buy the occasional duplicate. I think it's just bibliophile's lot in life. 😁😉 6y
Lcsmcat @Rachbb3 I agree, but I try to maximize my book budget! I used to have our library on an Excel spreadsheet. It took me almost a whole summer to do. And then the file got corrupted and I lost it all. 🙀 6y
Rachbb3 Ugh! All that work gone! It makes me appreciate the old way of doing things (keeping a written record) the problem is you can't take it everywhere with you. 😩 6y
