Someone just reminded me of this great article on the subject from Wayne and Cristina.

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.

Amusingly, just looked at the Amazon.ca listing again and noticed that it still says

Included in this box is a nicely bound hardback edition of The Hobbit and a collection of eight colour postcards featuring some of Tolkien's own artwork. Tolkien himself makes yet another guest appearance on an exclusive CD which features a recording of Tolkien reading an extract from Bilbo's first encounter with the terrifying Gollum. Lastly, there is a beautifully painted foldout map of Wilderland by John Howe with text by Brian Sibley.

Doing some hosting gymnastics today, so the site may be temporarily unavailable for a few minutes now and then. Apologies!
