Oh, God another turd by David Day. Excuse me whilst I go and shoot myself repeatedly in the head.

If you are technically minded, spin up a PostgreSQL instance (or MySQL if you want to use a rubbish database :)), create a few tables and do it properly. You can store records for a 100 million books and it will still give you 20ms access to the individual record :)

I must admit, it isn't something I get hung up on. All the bibliographic info is available online (tolkienbooks.net, etc), so all I really need is a list describing each copy for insurance purposes, more than anything.

I wonder if the colour difference is down to the (genuine) books sometimes fading (or at least appearing to based on photos I have seen, such as this one from TolkienLibrary). You can see where the green has changed to a grey/blue.

Spreadsheet: A line for each book with my#, title, author, impression, condition, origin, notes, price paid, probable value, Box#, if boxed.

Can't see much reason to retain much more info than that, personally.

Yes, they seem to have chopped the over-runs from the corners.
