I've finally decided to sit down and properly catalogue* my** library. My conundrum comes in how to collect and format the data. Clearly a spreadsheet is necessary. I'm currently working off of Google documents in order to have a reliable backup offsite as well as on my hard drive. My issue is that either I need to have a crazy-ass list of columns or I need to have multiple spreadsheets. I'm going for the second at present, though I might make a master list later.

After a lot of rambling and deleting I think my categories will be thus. Fiction; Non-Fiction; SF/F***; Manga; Comic Books; Gaming; Anthologies; Foreign Language; Franchise. Foreign language will have to include both translated and untranslated works. This will neatly solve problems such as where to put books like the Bible and the Qu'ran. I will have to double-check my fiction section to grab translated works like Les Miserables.

*I don't care if spellcheck prefers catalog. The word looks unfinished.

**Our, but I'm doing the work, so it's mine.

***Which also includes horror fiction, so I guess it should be Genre. But the majority of my books (period) are SFF, so it'll just have to do.
