Delicious Monster Offers Painless Cataloging for Your Personal Library

Looking for an easy way to catalog your personal library of books, movies, music, comic books, etc.? If you are a Mac user, check out Delicious Monster. Strange name, I know, but this looks like a really neat tool. Makes me wish I had a Mac - and a personal library worth cataloging!

The beauty of this product, though, is that you can use your iSight camera to read bar codes! And it works. You simply hold up your CD's or book's barcode in front of the iSight camera and, in about 2 seconds, it's searched Amazon and added the title to your collection - complete with cover art.

You can set up borrowers for your library, search it with Spotlight - you've essentially got a personal library automation tool with a barcode scanner - for $30!
