If you're anything like me, then you have books piled up everywhere around your house and no clear idea of exactly what you have and haven't got. One way to solve this problem is to catalogue your personal library using Book Catalogue software. This software allows you to track who you've lent books to, when you read each book, where it's filed, how much you originally paid for it and much more. Check out some of these sites for more information.
