Curating a Library
I’ve been thinking about is being pickier about the physical books I buy – we only have so much room in our house and I only have so much money. Reading forums like Show Me Your Prettiest Books! here, or following Bookstagram & book subReddit makes me want a more beautiful library.
But, it’s all well and good to say that, but keeping track of which edition from which publisher et al is not (to me anyway) terribly straightforward. I guess I could use Amazon, but…Amazon :slight_smile:&lt;img src=”https://d3gwxrf87yi2v0.cloudfront.net/images/emoji/apple/slight_smile.png?v=9″ title=”:slight_smile:” class=”emoji” alt=”:slight_smile:”&gt; and I’ve been burned by having a certain edition on a list and getting a newer one by the time I get around to buying it (I also want my wife and family to not be afraid of getting me books for fear of “getting it wrong.”)
Maybe a spreadsheet is my best option, but I figure who better to give advice than my most bookish friends?
