Google Books as a Kind of Libronix

by Apr 4, 2008Uncategorized0 comments

You can now search my library, or a lot of it. Or kind of some of it.

At Google Books You can see 483 of the books in my library, but remember that some of them I would never have purchased separately; they just came with Logos Scholar’s Gold and I’ve cataloged them. I haven’t cataloged all my books, just the ones whose ISBNs I already had on hand in another list.
