prosodic: (The Artist's Wife by Henry Lamb)
[personal profile] prosodic
Lance ordered the Kindle! He won't let me have it until Christmas, but I have actual books to read until then, so that's fine.

YAY! I'm so excited! A few months ago, I would've refused to even consider getting an e-reader, but now I can see the value in getting one. This doesn't mean I'll stop reading real books. I still love the feel of a book in my hand and the smell of the pages.

And I already have a book I can read on it when I get it. I'm currently reading this book via the Kindle app on my phone.

Speaking of books...I think I'm now addicted to this GoodReads app. I've been going around this evening scanning Lance's books into my GoodReads list. So if any of you are friends with me on GoodReads and you see some updates from me with some book titles that seem a little odd, that's probably because they're Lance's books. I haven't touched any of his computer books in the office, but I might do that tomorrow if he wants me to.

If I hadn't already taken photos of our entire movie collection, I would check to see if there was an app that allows me to scan all the DVD and VHS cases. But I don't really need to do that now. What we do need to do is fire up the old camcorder that's been collecting dust for 7 years and record our appliances and electronics to show that they're all in proper working order.

I need to figure out what my task will be for tomorrow. I know we have to start tackling things in the garage, but a lot of that stuff is Lance's. Still, I should probably photograph our bikes. And here inside the house, I should take pictures of our furniture. Or...since we still have pictures from the house listing, I probably already have that taken care of. But I'll look at the pictures and see if we missed anything.

A few years back, I got a Cuecat scanner and used it to back up my library on Librarything for the same reason. There are programs for CDs & DVDs. I'm not sure I found the best, but I used Music Collector for the CDs. I bet there are better, though.

Anyway, I should probably sign up for GoodReads, eh?

I like GoodReads, but I don't use it too much as a social networking tool. I think I participated once in one of their book clubs, but that was pretty much it. Now, I just find it useful for keeping inventory of my books.

I no longer have the CD cases (and neither does Lance), so if we decide to take inventory of our CDs, I'll have to do it the hard way, and probably just in spreadsheet format. I think Lance's plan is for us to rip ones that aren't already ripped and keep them on a flash drive, which we can take on the road and play in the Subaru.
