Thank you, Shelf Awareness!
I only have a few minutes to whip up this post because we have a TON of things going on in our house today but I wanted to say a quick thank you to those awesome bloggers, publishers and authors who hooked me up with these incredibly awesome goodies this week. I was absolutely shocked to see that I won the complete set of the Watchmen series from Shelf Awareness. I tweeted obsessively trying to get these and my husband was beyond thrilled when I gave them to him. He is a HUGE comic fan (he even writes, draws and publishes his own) and he has been wanting to get this series forever. He had a few of the issues but his weren't hardcovers or the complete set. He was quite pleased. And I was super pleased to win these awesome books as well as the kickass gift card, woohoo! I immediately put that to good use and took advantage of Amazon's bargain book sale and I will have a nice box full of new books to show you next week.
I'm also dedicating a lot of my time this week to updating my home library. I love Goodreads, but I needed something new to organize and catalog my books. After a very long search, I decided to try Libib.com. I used to keep a word doc of all my books but when my laptop died a few months ago I lost it. By the time I was able to get my information off the old hard drive, I had already collected a large amount of books that had been put away and there was no way I was going to be able to find and catalog them all. So now I am going through my shelves book by book and adding them to Libib via their ISBN numbers. It's taking a long time but it is worth it. Now I can just log on to my account from anywhere to see if I already have a certain book. This comes in super handy when I'm at the used bookstore because I tend to forget what I have and end up with duplicates.
What do you use, if anything, to keep a record of your books? And what books did you get this week? Leave me a link so I can come visit!
