Library and book loving friends: redoing my house and will have big new bookshelves. How do you organize your books at home? Fiction vs. Non-fiction? Dewey? Alphabetical? Order you bought them? Color? I am tempted to bring home a portable scanner and catalog, but I fear that is slipping over the edge into crazy lady.

Hah, yes, definitely order I read them, and then loosely organized the following way: fiction in chaos with some authors' work grouped together and nonfiction by topic. I have a graphic novel section.

My bookshelves have an anteroom: newly bought books sit hopefully on my large beside table with three shelves until there's no more room. Then they get shelved somewhere--anywhere.

Does anyone know how pricing and licensing works out for iBooks 2? Can you get simultaneous or unlimited access so you can use these for a school? Or just 1 to 1?

Heard from Apple: 1 license to1 device. Sho not too useful for my school library. Especially since ebook texts I just bought are unlimited, simultaneous license, and just need a web browser. Who has money for each kid to have his own device?

Trying to decide if Apple is actively evil, or just regards it as a side amusement. Copy folders does NOT merge documents, but deletes them. Brilliant plan.

Looking to my tech connections here: we've been using NAS for household backups, but it's on it's last legs and needs an update. I'm thinking about switching to cloud-based. Thoughts? Recommendations?  Household has two PCs, a Chromebook, iPad and phones (Blackberry, Droid and (soon) an iPhone.)

So, if my district is all GoogleAppy, what about chromebooks instead of iPads/MacBooks for a cart? thoughts?

Why is Google morally opposed to putting borders on things anymore? I have a feeling this obsession with extra white space in all their new designs is Apple related

Dear consumer electronics makers (especially you Apple): when I say off, I actually mean "off," not "blank the screen but secretly continue running and draining the battery."
