Anyway, I would keep those books I really liked and re-donate the others back to the thrift store. I am having a hard time with paper backs as the print is to small for my old eyeballs these days..so hard covers/backs are where I am. However, they are getting few and far between at the thrift store, so I recently got educated about ebooks and getting them for free and downloading them to my tablet to read and leaving other on the Amazon/Kindle cloud so they are there when I want them. I have a nice collection now. I will also be traveling end of this year and wanted to make sure I had books to read... I know I won't be able to take a stack with me, so the ebook on the tablet is a good way to go! However... I will always love a "real" book and hopefully, once settled I can go "home" again to the books I Love
However... I still want to keep my own library and if I could have found a real card catalog, I probably would have recreated one.. however, since I didn't... I just made a junk journal style of "library catalog". I used the covers from hard backs and 8x11 cardstock and created this book. Pockets and tags I have made will hold the information about the ebooks or any book I read that doesn't have a dust jacket. I am sure this will last me many many years!
