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.

The map looks very good, the picture does show the issue that I pointed out about the cloth binding. You can see part of the mountains on the top right of the picture, this does not appear on the 1st Impression.


Yes, it is pretty obvious from the inside.

Have loaded up the other map as well (in previous post) -- accidentally missed uploading it first time around.
