To save hours of typing ISBNs, I used Oliver’s copy of Delicious Library along with the iSight camera on his Mac to quickly scan the bar codes of the books scattered around our house. I then exported from Delicious Library into a plain ASCII text file, edited the text file to remove everything by the ISBN, and then imported this into LibraryThing using its “Universal Importer.” Five minutes later and there were my 106 books in LibraryThing.
One of the things I learned by going through this process is that my library is almost completely made up of books about travel, medicine or design. I wasn’t completely aware that my tastes were so limited (you will note, as well, that there are no works of fiction in my library, reflecting my longstanding suspicion of the genre).
LibraryThing is free for up to 200 books, and cheap to join after that. I welcome you to sign up and befriend me: just visit librarything.com/profile/ruk can click “Add to Friends” in the top-right.
