Library Giveaway

I subscribe to Giveaway of the Day. This site is dedicated to distributing free software. I suppose the purpose of doing this is to get you interested in their product and at some point get you to purchase an upgrade. In the end the software functions just a little bit better than a demo. It does not expire and you can really work with the product to see if it is helpful.

I ignore most of the daily offers, but I found today’s offer to be really helpful. I have a library that is divided up between my home, insurance office, church office, and I suppose the trunk of my car. In addition I loan books to other people. The software that is offered today provides a way convenient way to keep track of your books.

Instead of typing them in one by one you can use the software to find the details of the book by using a search engine. Once the book is found then it can be added by a simple double click of the mouse. All of the detailed information concerning the book is transferred to the database. The only thing left to do is just record where the book is located at this moment by selecting a location in a drop down box or by adding a new location.

If you want a good way to keep up with your personal library this link may be worth a look.
