So my stepdad turned me on to Bookpedia and the related versions, DVDpedia and CDPedia. Basically am SQL database but with some cool features for tracking books (CDs or DVDs). With over 800 Kindle books and an estimated 5-6K paper books I really needed to move past the series of text files I was using. What I like is that it’s not cloud based (which keeps me off of most of the book/library apps) and has a nice functional iOS system. So far I only have my Kindle books in it and am updating the metadata and adding in covers. I imported from an export of my calibre library. There is a way to add books by using the iPhone or iPad as a scanner of the ISDB numbers and bar codes but since so far most of my books don’t have them I’ll probably have to monk the data in once I start on the paper books.
Anyone else using Bookpedia?
Got any particular tips or tricks to share?
