At recent count, I have around 900 books. I keep track of who has read what, who has borrowed what, things to be read, and in general, what I have!!
If we are studying Egypt I can click on the Egypt tag and have an instant list of what books I already have.
When DS reads a book I add a tag with his name to the book. Then I can get an instant list at the end of the year.
And you won't believe how many duplicate books I found after I cataloged them all!!!
