I built my data base using Microsoft Works data base when came with my computer.  I put in my own fields, author title a column to check when I read it and subject matter . 

I made a different data base for Civil War books, and then one for American History which includes all my other history books.  I have a world history data base too. 

I now make myself enter each new book as soon as I get it.  Still working on entering the books I already have.  Hopefully this will keep me from buying a second copy of a book.  In taking books off various shelves to do the data base I discovered some Oregon Trail Journals I bought a few years ago as I followed the Oregon Trail.  Got diverted from the Civil War for a while as I read these gems.  Women's Journals . 

Now to sell my mystery library and that will make alot more room.
