But Trish, you’re thinking, you talk about tasty things on Fridays! Well yes, but in this case an awesome piece of software also happens to be delicious. Delicious Library ($40) that is. I’ve been admiring this program for years, and it just keeps getting prettier. I’ve always been a bit collector of books but have never taken the time to catalog them. Delicious Library would make this task a snap. Using the built-in iSight on my MacBook, I could scan in my library in no time (well, a couple days). Books aren’t the only thing this app can keep track of. It also recognizes music, DVDs, tools, clothing…. basically a huge list of items.
Delicious Monster is the company behind the Library. Wil Shipley is the man behind the Monster and is entertaining to follow on Twitter.
Update! I finally broke down and bought DL. I haven’t had the opportunity to scan in many of my books yet, but it’s only a matter of time. I like that I can keep track of who I’ve loaned books to without taking them out of my library. Screenshot below.
