What about all those temporary freebies? And nobody can convince me that some book will stay free in next 5-10 years. Maybe author/publisher changes policy? Only certain thing is my own PC.

I gleaned lot of practices from other members, actually am thinking about starting a new library for cleanups (like you). So I can enter the info from downloads page (whatever it has and I want) and source. When reading/cleaning/converting and moving to main library, I then don't have to check if there was some info I want (like page count or better summary for example).

Idea for 'source' I lifted from someone's screenshot...
