I need help - seriously!
The problem - my book collection. I buy books - I had my husband build me a wall of shelves to hold my teacher books (read alouds and professional dev stuff). I have so many books, and even though I have attempted to organize the books into categories, they always get rearranged/out of order.
I have looked online and I have found a couple of book organization systems. One is library thing. $25 for more than 2000 books (lifetime), buy a $20 scanner. Not bad. Hard to tell what it's like.
Collectorz - $50, plus $20 scanner. Lots of screen shots - seems okay. And the Intelliscanner - $80. Seems really cool - I just wish I had some guarantee it worked awesomely (21 day unopened return policy - not impressed with that).
So I am wondering - how do you guys compile and keep track of books?? I would love to get all my books uploaded to a system (love the idea of ISBN barcode scanning!!) and then be able to sort by theme (fall, spiders, Christmas, transportation, etc) so I can quickly and easily grab my books for a given theme.
I really appreciate your help - let me know if you or someone you know has/uses one of these systems!!
