Cataloging Books and DVDs
Staying organized so you don't end up with multiples of an item is a poor skill, right? I own a lot of books and DVDs. I would guess somewhere to the tune of 1000+ books and 300+ DVDS. I am a collector. I love frequenting pawn shops, thrift shops, yard sales, and used book stores to get my collecting fix. The problem? I have a hard time remembering what I already own so I end up either with two copies or I pass on a great deal. What I want, I don't think exists. I would like to have a program that I can input all my books on my laptop then export the file over to my Pocket PC so I can access the file when I am out and about. I've tried a couple different programs for both the PC and the PDA, but they are either so user-unfriendly that I end up pulling my hair, or so expensive that I'm afraid to try it and like it, then have it stop working in 30 days. So, even if I can't find a program, what are everyone's tips on keeping track of collections?
