Organise and catalogue all my books

Some people ask why I have a goal such as “Organise and catalogue all my books” on my list. The simple answer is that I like to have things neatly ordered, but there is also a more pragmatic aspect. As most readers will undoubtedly have noticed, I tend to review a lot of books, and after a while it becomes difficult keeping them separate. Do not get me wrong, I never lose track of what books I have and roughly what I thought about them, but I have no way of browsing a well-sorted list of the books. Also, the search function on this website is limited, not being optimised for books at all.

Therefore, I decided to register an account on LibraryThing, a service that keeps track of your books and connects you to larger community based on what you read. Registration is free and you may catalogue up to 200 books without paying anything. I was satisfied with the service provided, and after adding 200 books, I decided to invest the $15 or whatever it cost for a lifetime membership (I cannot recall the exact amount, but it was not much).

I have now catalogued roughly 650 books, a library which comprises all books I have read or listened to during the past few years, along with all books I own in print, with links attached to relevant reviews on Snigel.nu. I consider this item on my 101-in-1001 list completed. If you are curious and want to know more, you can view my account on LibraryThing.
