Organize Your Books with LibraryThing
Drew reminds you to “Organize Your Books” as he wrote about on Day 11 of his January Getting Organized series of blog posts (http://blog.genealogyguys.com/2020/01/day-11-organize-your-books.html). The Guys then discuss LibraryThing (https://www.librarything.com/) and the ease of cataloguing your entire collection of books. As of 18 March 2020, LibraryThing is free and allows you to add an unlimited number of books. You can tag and organize your books into groups. There is a LibraryThing app for the Apple iOS that allows you take it with you anywhere. The app allows you to snap an image of the ISBN and immediately add the book to your library. Pre-ISBN books also are easily added using a search of author and partial title.
George reminds you to back up your browser bookmarks.
