    Good question. On more than one occasion I have forgotten that I already had a certain ebook. But I’m not so sure it’s entirely a problem with ebooks. I do the same with my print library, though not as often (maybe because of the visual element?). As our libraries grow, it becomes harder and harder to keep track of everything.

    I plan to keep track of all my ebooks in LibraryThing. Currently, I have a small number of them cataloged there (ones with easily exportable ISBNs). Once I get some time, I would like to get them all cataloged. Logos is considering integrating a tool in their next major release that will allow a user to catalog all of his print and ebooks. If they do this, I may do that instead of (or in addition to, if the import/export is easy) LibraryThing.

    Quick question: how do you remember the e-books you have? Do you use LibraryThing to catalog these, too?

    Bible Explorer’s free library is continuing to grow – an always up-to-date list of free books is here, in case you’re interested: http://www.bible-explorer.com/fbe_scripts/free.cgi

    When new free books are made available, they can be added to your library by going back to View, “Add-On Books.”

    I love the idea of the free books as well! I’ve downloaded all of them, & I check back every weekend. WORDsearch has given us some incredible titles well worth reading! John Butler’s new free book Alliterated Sermon Outlines added to the list is a must have title for every pastor.

    bible explorer is great. but does anyone know how to add an NIV bible to the library for free?
    i mean, i already have an NIV ebook on my computer, so i do not want to buy it again. so i want to know if there is anyway that i can get it for free or add my own ebook to its library
