|Remember these piles of "inventoried" books?|
Here are a few to consider:
-Classroom Book Source
-All My Books
-Book Retriever (App $.99)
-Book Crawler (App $1.99)
I bought the Book Crawler app from a recommendation from blogger buddy Danielle from the School Counselor Blog and found it quite easy & helpful to use.

Here's a few screenshots of the app and how to use it:
|You can add books manually, from Google Books or scan them to your inventory.|
|If you have to enter your book info manually.|
|Using the scanner feature, (this is actually a pic of my couch). The scanner picks up so quickly, I couldn't take a screen shot fast enough, so I had to go with this (notice the book is laying in the background).|
|Once the book's scanned, the info comes up!|
|So what if you scan in a book and the cover doesn't appear?|
|You can take a picture of the book cover with the camera on your iPad/iPhone & add it to the inventory!|
|The picture of the book updates and appears in your library.|
|You can even email your book list!|
I like this app and am excited to use it to keep track of my counselor books. The inventory will have to be on hold until August (hey this is summer & I have other counselor projects to work on) but will finish for sure. I do think that this next round of "inventory" will go easier, since I've gone through the books and grouped them.
Having an inventory of books is going to be great. I certainly can't tell you all the books I have off the top of my head but this app sure will help. During the ASCA conference I was looking at books in the exhibit hall and realized by checking my Google Docs book inventory on my iPad that I actually had a few of the books already in my collection. So all that work was NOT done in vain! Having the inventory already saved me from buying books that I already had. I am liking this concept more and more!
