Blog: Technology As An Organizing Tool
Using Technology to Organize Your Books
One of my favourite websites is The Internet Movie Database (IMDb), and I wrote a post about it, Organize Movies the Easy Way
, some time ago.
Around the same time, I was delighted to discover a site called Internet Book Database (iBookDB), but I didn't mention it on my blog, because it was still fairly new and didn't have a lot of content yet. I've been back recently and am pleased to see that it has come a long way!
Although not as powerful or glitzy as IMDb, iBookDB is an extensive database of books and authors. As a member, you can create your own bookshelf showing the books you own or want to own, indicate whether you've read them or not, rate them, write reviews, and designate favourites. You can then share your bookshelf by placing a link or widget on your blog, website, or social media profiles.
If you already have an account at BookCrossing, Library Thing, or GoodReads, you can import your information from there. You can also export your bookshelf as a CSV file to import into one of these other applications.
Once you've rated quite a few books, you'll be able to generate a list of other titles that you might enjoy, based on your choices.
The site also includes author interviews, monthly contests, forums, and much more. If you're a book lover, be sure to check it out!
