Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Anyone ever use a Cue Cat for organizing their personal library?

I recently signed up for Librarything.com to organize my personal library.  My husband found my an inexpensive scanner called a Cue Cat ($15) that one can use with a USB.  You use it to scan in a book's ISBN and, automatically, the title of the book pops up and is entered in the database.  I can't wait to try it out!  Just wondering, does anyone on here have one?  If you do, does it work well? (that is, does it work well considering the nominal price when compared with the more expensive ISBN scanners?)

 

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with the Cue Cat, Danimal, but you can virtually organize your books in the library of your MY B&N page. It looks like you already started too!
