I used Librarything but tired after à while, sadly.
I used Delicious software, à program for Mac connected to Amazon huge database able to scan all your booktitles with à smart little handheld scanner, the same you use to scan bars in the supermarket shelves.
But they have some quarrel with Apple now for some kind of à patent and the app was withdrowned from the Apple store.

Now we can locate things by author, or even better subject. Wonderful, especially since the kid did most of the work.

And I seem to fill up bookshelves as fast as I can find places to put them, so some of my books are still in stacks on the floor and elsewhere. Now just to find time to read all the books I haven't had a chance to yet...
