Booking Through Thursday : Catalog

Do you use any of the online book-cataloguing sites, like Library Thing or Shelfari? Why or why not? (Or . . . do you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking to?? (grin))   If not an online catalog, do you use any other method to catalog your book collection? Excel spreadsheets, index cards, a notebook, anything? When I began to buy more and more books, I made a personal catalog in a booknote.

Booking Through Thursday : OOP

Booking Through Thursday : Preservatives

I’m still relatively new to this meme so I’m not sure if this has been asked yet, but I’m curious how many of us write notes in our books.
