Silly Scanner fun

The wonderful Librarything is selling off cuecat scanners, to read the ISBN numbers off barcodes, very cheaply, and mine arrived this morning. It took about ten minutes to learn that the secret is to swipe quite fast, and after that, the widget just works: take a book, run the scanner over its barcode, and you have its title, author, publisher and so on entered all neatly in the library, ready to tag. I could do a huge pile in an hour with a laptop. There are not many of my books that don’t have barcodes these days, and certainly very few that I buy. I wonder if I can use it for tagging entries about books here. hmmmm.
