WOAH. Can I hire you to do this to my collection??

I try to be organized

Reblogged from Lindsay's Book Log:

We are moving (really really soon actually) so last night we packed up our books.  In an attempt to be organized since a lot of our stuff will be in storage I made a list of all our books and what box they went into. 9 boxes later I have 161 books cataloged, in both a google docs and a google sheets. I'm a little nutty at times and really like a good excel sheet so obviously I had to put my book catalog in that way so that we can easily find out what we have by title, author, type of book, series it belongs to, location, or reading status for me or my husband. Status currently include: Read, TBR, and TBR DNF of which I have a surprising number of from college when I was too busy or read half a book for a class and then didn't go on to finish the book on my own (examples include Delivering Happiness for a business class & Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass an American Slave for a history class).


Now if I can just get back the books I lent out before I move that would be great.
