I am working on updating my bookshelf. The project of "home library" has been on my to-do list forever. I started out manually creating this document but fell behind on other categories while I kept up a little better on the cemetery category.
To speed things up I am experimenting with the Android App Codex. I selected this one for its ease and ability to export the list. And, it's free!
I started by: (see photo below)
- Scanning the ISBN code on the books. It found and generated the listing for me. On the booklets without a code I manually entered as much data as I felt I needed in the default menu
- In the Other menu I tagged it as my cemetery category and
- In the personal menu I checked that I own this book and if I have read it
These photos reflect:
- Collections created: Cemetery is the only one so far
- Categories created from the book based on ISBN data
- The books in the cemetery collection
Using the Codex app export function these are the books I need to add to my bookshelf list:
- Bellefontaine Cemetery: Civil War Tour Booklet, Bellefontaine Cemetery Association
- Bellefontaine Cemetery: A Journey Through History, Bellefontaine Cemetery Association
- Final Thoughts, Eternal Beauty in Stone, John Thomas Grant
- Forever L.A., A Field Guide to Los Angeles Area Cemeteries & Their Residents, Douglas Keister
- Historic Bonaventure Cemetery, Photographs from the Collection of the Georgia Historical Society, Mandi Dale Johnson;Mandi Johnson;Amie Marie Wilson;Historical Society Georgia
- Movers and Shakers, Scalawags and Suffragettes, Tales from Bellefontaine Cemetery, 1849-2006, Carol Ferring Shepley
- Savannah's Laurel Grove Cemetery, John Walker Guss
- Savannah Cemeteries, Matthew Propst
- Stony Point Church and Cemetery, And Historic Hickory Point, Ruth Endicott Brown
- Tales Behind the Tombstones, The Deaths and Burials of the Old West's Most Nefarious Outlaws, Notorious Women, and Celebrated Lawmen, Chris Enss
The photo above reflects the book list on my phone (Droid X2). I exported the file as .CSV so that I could open it in Excel on my laptop, which is reflected on the computer screen behind my phone.
Technology is wonderful. Technology in our hobbies: genealogy, cemeteries, photography, cooking, etc makes me a happy girl.
Many of you know that I love photography...I am planning to incorporate Lightroom 4 into my organization and keyword tagging of my many thousands of cemetery photos. You'll be hearing about that somewhere down the road.
I know there are so many options out there. What do you use?
