Wow, life has gone on ..

What have I been up to?

It has really been a long time since I booked and entry in this blog. So, now sitting at my computer on 31 August, I think I have lost interest in explaining why I have the books that I have in my personal library. Actually, what caught my interest was that I needed to have a easy way to determine what was in my library. I have 259 actual books and 452 digital books. So, it is really getting difficult to remember titles and authors. And these are just the items in the library that deal with Genealogy!

I decided that it was time to take action on getting this under control (i.e. reduce the possiblity to purchase another copy of the same tome that I already one either on paper or in disk). The result is the database that I have created that contains all of the above plus more:

I have also been keeping track of the books I have been reading for entertainment for a number of years. And added that to my list — it covers actual books, Kindle Books, and Nook Books. Then, because I tend to add important / interesting / research items to notebooks, I have added the inventory of those notebooks and what is in each (still a work in progress. I have a few more shelves of notebooks to add.
