So as I’m adding books to my new Book Crawler app, I’m also adding yet-to-be-released books that I want to buy/read. Believe it or not, I tend to rely on my friends to keep me in the loop when it comes to other authors’ book releases. I’ve added Jaci Burton’s  […]

Help needed for my To-Be-Bought list

Yesterday I blogged over on the Samhain blog about having bought a second copy of a book accidentally–again–and wondered if there was a program that I could use that would alert me to whether I already owned the book. One that I could load up onto my iPod and take […]
