I like a good book as much as the next man, in fact sometimes more so – Emma nearly shot me on holiday when I was reading just over a book per day! – Thank goodness for our resort in the Dominican Republic’s extensive library!

The problem is I like a lot of the action ones (mostly be a few authors), and sometimes I get to the point where I forget what I’ve read. This can be a real pain the backside when I go to see “Book Man”.

“Book Man” is a chap at a local market who runs a book stall, he’s fantastic and we always pay him a visit before we go on holiday. He’ll often recommend second hand versions of just published books, or new authors similar to the ones I like (I think he reads the same sort of stuff as me!).

What I need is to be able to call up on my phone a list of all the books I’ve read, are have at home waiting to be read! The “have reads” is particularly important as “Book Man” will buy my books back off me (at a lower price obviously).

So does anyone have any suggestions on a program that would do this for me?

I’ve briefly looked Rob Miller’s Now-Reading plugin but I couldn’t see a batch way of getting in all the books I’ve already read and marking them as read. Nor sections like “Fiction vs Non-Fiction”.
