Note to self: [Library Thing] and [bookcrossing]
Moonshadow's [Barcode code]
Annoyingly, Library Thing wants $25 if you have more than 200 books. -DR

DouglasReay is about to move house, and thus also move all his books.  Now is the time to scan them in!  Has anyone got a barcode reader, or know where I can get hold of a cheap one?  What I'd actually really like is for someone to sit down with me and Louise's laptop, and help get things set up to the point where I can scan a couple of books, then press a button, and have them automatically added to a database or website of choice - ideally using info [Amazon] or [google books] or similar to categorise them.  Anyone done this?

We have one, though I'd have to find it. It needs a (real, not one of those little USB adapters) keyboard port. - MoonShadow
Thank you.  Though, since Kitiara's laptop only has USB I purchased one for myself.  It works, and enters into a notepad a digital number corresponding to the ISBN encoded in the book's barcode.  Now to [try to do something useful] with that.  --DR
Ok, I've now got this to the point where it can generate useful SQL so I need a database, accessible over the net, and without cost.  Anyone know of a website that supplies this? --DR

Ok, preliminary results: [Fantasy], [Science Fiction], [Unsorted]
Thank you Kitiara! --DR



Asprin: A phule and his money, phule me twice

I read 'A Phule and his money' and was disappointed by it.  Is 'Phule me twice' any better? --Angoel
I like them all, so I'm not the best person to ask - SunKitten
Well, it wasn't bad, but 'Phule's Company' and 'Phule's Paradise' are so much better than it. --Angoel
I liked them, but then again there is quite a bit of trash I like.  --DR


Charrette: Timespell, A prince among men,  Wizard of Bones, Eye of the Serpent

Scott Card: Ender's Game (+), Wyrms

Green: Mistworld, Ghostworld, Hellworld, Something from the Nightside

Chester: Reign of Shadows, Shadow War, Realm of Light

Christian: The Truthsayer's Apprentice

Moon: Change of Command, Remnant Population, Once a Hero, Trading in Danger
Several of those are parts of series, I believe.  I liked Trading in Danger --DR
All but Remnant Population are.  Trading in Danger is pretty good, but then, Moon invariably writes her best books at the beginning of series.  Similarly, Hunting Party and Once a Hero are my two favourites in the horses InSpace series. --Angoel

Modesitt: The Forever Hero, The Octagonal Raven
Modesitt has done other stuff too. --DR
Yes, I know. We have most of them - the Order/Chaos? and Spellsong ones - and I've read many of the ones we don't :) - SunKitten

McKiernan?: Voyage of the Fox Rider (+)

Huff: Sing the Four Quarters, Quartered Sea, No Quarter, Fifth Quarter''
Huff: Blood Price/Trail?/Debt?/Pact?/Lines?

Klasky: The Glasswright's Apprentice (+)
Can I have the rest of these please? It's good :) - SunKitten
Might be a few weeks - I have a busy period coming up, and I have not read the others yet. --DouglasReay
Ah, OK then. Thanks anyway - SunKitten

Kress: Beggars in Spain, Beggar's Ride, Beggars and Choosers

Lynn: Watchtower (+)
