This week we get to play with a product by Collectorz.com – Book Collector. I can tell you that this little gem would have come in handy when we were trying to catalog the Central Oregon Homeschool Library! You can use a scanner to enter, ISBN, or manual. It would quickly let you know where you have duplicates – one snazzy central location of all of our books. Right now, in our home, we do not have an extensive book library. We sold /gave away quite a few of our books in the move, so I only have two small book cases in the home – I rely heavily on the library system for our choices. However – I found a little trick you could do – that made my heart swell – and made me o so glad I was included on this review!
If you click on the third button from the left – a folder button – and direct it to scan a folder – I chose the USER folder – it will scan for ebooks and mps3’s. Oooo-Eeee-Mama. I’m wondering why I have been reluctant to get an e-reader. After quite few years of being a homeschool radio show fan, homeschool freebies fan, and um, just about any fan of homeschool e-books – upon the first scan of my computer – it found. . . . . ..898 ebooks. Seriously? Yep. I am working through the list – making the titles work for me. I have tried two or three other software companies to help me catalog these – but this has got to be the easiest so far. 898? I thought it would be more like 20. 🙂 Denial.
