In other software news, I purchased a license for ArcaneWare’s Library 1.0 yesterday after a quick preview. I’ve considered options like ReaderWare and BookTracker, but they were either too powerful or too difficult to add books to respectively.

Library has an Amazon lookup by ISBN, bookmarking feature, and lending status indicator as well as general filtering and text export. It’s not everything I want, but it could be with further development—something I want to encourage by paying the $10 registration fee.

If you want to keep track of a large library (mine’s several thousand books strong and I’ve tediously entered only 57), but you don’t want to pay $40 for ReaderWare or like Cocoa-styled, OS X-native apps you should really check this program out.
