When you get a home library as large as ours are, it’s easy to get confused between what you thought about buying and did; what you thought about buying and decided to get from the library instead; what you want to remember to buy for a future study; what you have on your perpetual wish list; and what you actually need to buy for the next couple of months.
We’re working on an organizational feature in Simply Charlotte Mason to help moms keep track of all the books and other resources they deal with: personal book lists. Right now we’re planning on three options for your personal book lists:
- Later List – for resources you’re interested in but don’t want to schedule right away
- Library List – for resources you want to borrow from the library or someone else
- Shopping List – for resources you want to buy for your home library
So when you select a resource from the database, you can add it to any of these lists and/or schedule it. Any other lists you’d like to suggest?
Hopefully, this feature will help make all our homes a little more organized and all our home libraries a little bit larger! (Now, if we just had more bookshelves . . .)
