One of these days, I want to invent an application as cool as LibraryThings that allows book lovers such as myself to catalogue and tag the books in their collection online. What’s even cooler about the tool is that you can find users with similar collections and allow others to comment and make suggestions about other books you might consider reading. With that in mind, I’m going to sign up, even though I already catalogued my book collection earlier this summer using Intelliscanner. Perhaps now it will be easier to find a few more people in my neck of world who share my passion for books.

  1. That’s quite a list of books for the year in your side bar. Will you be posting your favorite reads of the year? Not that I should seek anymore lists, but I just can’t help myself and I love seeing what other readers enjoyed.

  2. That Library Things sounds really cool. I might sign up too for the 25 bucks member for life. Too good of a deal to pass up.
    Did you buy the IntelliScanner or did you get it as a gift? If you bought it, why? Just for books? Or did you need to inventory your pantry or something?

  3. JM: Quite a few of the books I’ve read this year are rubbish. But yeah, before the year end or soon there after, I’ll highlight the ones I’d recommend to others. There are quite a few good ones in the lot.
    Andrew: Once I decided to move abroad, I needed something to inventory everything I would be taking with me for insurance purposes. Intelliscanner was attractive as I could easily catalogue and load pictures of household items. Plus they had a super duper feature that allowed me to scan the ISDN number for my books/dvds/cds which made the whole process go alot faster. So even now that I’ve discovered LibraryThings, I still consider Intelliscaner a good buy and would recommend to others. LibaryThings just deals with books. Intelliscanner allow you to inventory your whole household.
