249 How I Carry My 600-Book Library In Hand Luggage


If you are interested in minimalism or a travel-oriented lifestyle, moving to a digital-only book library is a great benefit. Even if you don't plan to travel, switching to e-books has a ton of other advantages over maintaining paper books. This episode is all about the tools and techniques for managing an e-book library, including:

  • Making the transition from a physical to a digital library. 
  • Choosing a database application for managing e-books. 
  • Organising an e-book library with tags and other metadata. 
  • Having a system for keeping your own notes about books.
