    wich software do you use to manage your private library ?

    I' m trying this one for the moment:

    http://www.soft-creation.fr/Bibliotheque-Livres.html

    Any advice would be welcome.
    I use this. You can register the first 250 books for free. After that it costs a little money. I paid $25 for a lifetime membership. THere are discussion groups for literally every topic out there. It also has a good book recommendation selector. Every book has it's own page which links to Amazon,abebooks and Barnes & Nobles. It will tell you the closet library that will have a particular book. I highly recommend it!

    • I use my bookshelves, storage cabinets, and my often forgetful mind. Sometimes that leaves me wondering where I last left a book I now wanted to look at, but then I also run across old friends that I should take another look through their pages...

        Many thanks Legate, I will have a close look at it, it seem quite similar to the one I' m testing.

        Well said. Books got soul.

          • Any good book about the 1793-1794
            battles (or campaigns) between France and Great-Britain ?

            (Hondschoote 1793, Tourcoing 1794 ..etc)

            • Hi,
              If you do nothing else in your life you have already achieved the highest of recognition for your posting of the Gallica links to E. Fort etc.

              I have spent a considerable amount of time downloading all i could find on this site and have already started to clean up the images and re-assemble the books.

              Fantastic site, thanks eternally for the heads up.

                • Just to let you all know,




                  I have read this book through twice since it arrived via my postman on the 12th May. I had to read it through again in order to make notes. After I have had the time to check up on one or two things, I will post my critique on the book.

                  I brought it pre-ordered, at Pen and Sword for 20.00 including Postage. Amazon has it on sale for 31.00 Euros new.

                      I don't know how long it will take, hopefully no longer than a week as I have to make the time in a busy period.

                      Has anyone else read the book perchance ?

                      • It isn't offered on Amazon over here yet-not until September. I hope it isn't another of those unsupported diatribes like the one that came out a couple of years ago by a retired French general and Ben Weider.

                        I'm looking forward to your review very much.

                        Sincerely,

                          All I'll say at the moment is that It's worth getting.
