I know I've been MIA for awhile, but it's not my fault.  Really.  It's because of Goodreads.com.  Actually, it's because someone on Goodreads mentioned a program for books, one that you can list all your books - which is nice for me, because I've been writing everything down manually.  Which leads to purchasing a lot of duplicates.  So, that being said, I decided to check it out and bought the Book Collector from Collectorz.com/book/.

Let me tell you, I just love it (and yes, I know I'm plugging them).  I've been cataloging my books, which I probably needed to do anyway, and it's taken up a lot of my free time.  And I'm not even halfway through.  At times I sit here thinking, 'this sucks,' then I realize the money it will save me when I hit the book sales, (which I do every chance I get) because I can coordinate it on my Ipad (had to buy the coordinating program to do that, but still).  And I went with the whole thing, including their "cat" barcode scanner, which makes it easier yet.

Time-consuming, but worth it.  I now know what books I have at a glance, whether I've read them, if I'll read them again, or if I want to get rid of them eventually.  It is a great time saver for me, and I'm glad I got it.  A highly recommended item for your PC or Mac.

Then I went on vacation for my tenth wedding anniversary, and just returned home recently.  Off to Disneyland - which was a nice visit.  It's just Jeff and I, and we have a great time and go quite often.  But, it wears you out by the third day if you're really busy and I'm glad to be back home in Las Vegas where the lights never go out and the city never sleeps (I do, but the city doesn't, so hey.....).

Now I'm back in business and will be adding more books in no time at all (hopefully!)
