A few of my favorite things

I think I will make Tuesdays favorite discovery day. At least this Tuesday. On Discovery Tuesday, I will share with you something that I love—something that makes my life easier or that is just plain cool.

Today’s discovery is Library Thing. I learned about it from a copyediting Listserve I’m on—and let me tell you, it’s worth all of the crazy “Who vs. Whom” rants I have to wade through every day. Wow. I can’t say enough good things about this program.

I was determined to spend part of my Labor Day (the time between checking google analytics to see if I’ve had any new visitors to my blog, that is) cataloging my husband’s books. He has a couple hundred theology and Bible study books that he inherited from one of his father’s friends. I’ve been meaning to catalogue them for some time, but I dreaded spending hours on end staring at an Excel file.

In steps Library Thing. [Cue music.] With Library Thing, all your cataloging cares drift away. With one little ISBN number or title and a simple push of a button, it completes the rest of the book information for you—title, publisher, date—you name it. It’s all of the information in Amazon.com and the Library of Congress right at your finger tips. [Music fades.]

Seriously, it’s great. And, no, I’m not being paid to promote their product.
