Do you keep each book as a different line item even if its the same edition and print, and the only difference is the condition? Still undecided if its better to group them and indicate quantity, but probably the best idea is to keep each one separate even if it makes the spreadsheet larger.

I use the spreadsheet method with notes, price paid, condition and so on.

I also keep a record on Instagram, relevant pictures, condition and so on and just keep it private. That way I have a version available while out of the house with details that would not be suited to a spreadsheet. So if a book has damage and I find a replacement I can check Instagram for the pictures of the damage. Works well for me.

Been using a spreadsheet for tracking my collection, as well as info on my want/wish list.

Been meaning to convert it over to using google sheets, so I'd have the ability to view it online when on the go.

I use a spreadsheet. It can get a bit overwhelming, but the way I see it, it is important to have the data in a place that can be used for insurance purposes (replacement value in the case of loss, etc.).

I have used book inventory software (e.g. homebase from ABEbooks back in the day) which can be helpful, as it has standard fields already for everything you might like to track, but in general having a "notes" column where you put lots of detail is more important than having an "ISBN" column when many books don't have ISBNs or multiple issues have the same ISBN, etc.
