Water cooler

Hi guys.
This is for any VERY off-topic thoughts.
First thought is how can I make sure all my cookbooks are cataloged. Note, most of them are in a Google sheet. I only need either 14 or 38 more to reach 1K cataloged.
I neglected that poor database for nearly a year.
Ideas anyone?

Have a large family gathering.
Make notes of the "I always loved your xyz, why didn't you make it?" questions.
That should tell you which cookbooks you couldn't find.

Do you mean you were entering them by hand into a Google sheet? I'd suggest starting over using barcode scanning. It should be much quicker that way.

Thanks for trying.
I don't have a Barcode scanner and that would work on less than 50% of the books.
Most are either pre-1970 or fundraiser cookbooks.
I tried an app once. Out of 200 books, it found less than 50.

Now I did discover tap to speak on my tablet so it is going faster.
The good news is I have 4 shelves that hadn't been added to. Most of those are pre World War 2.
Now you have me curious as to how many have bar codes.

That certainly throws a spanner in the works. Back to the hard yakka I guess.

I decided just to take it one shelf at a time.

First of all, let me congratulate you on an excellent thread. I love threads that state from their birth that they are for off-topic thoughts. I feel safe in such threads, as my thoughts naturally seems to wander, especially as other people's comments seem to constantly trigger the most offbeat connections in my mind.

I don't know if you've tried it, but the goodreads app on my iPad seems to have one of the best book code scanners around, but as you say, it doesn't do very well on the old style barcodes. Surely they must have a free app that works with android tablets if you'd care to try it. It might possibly do what your current one can't.

The problem is most bar codes in books and not on the dust jackets are within the last 20 years. Most of my collection is way older than that. A few are over a century old. And most are at least a half of century. I think there are some photos on Facebook.
