Last year the school librarian taught me how to enter books into the library's computerized version of what used to be called a "card catalog." (I used to type the index cards for actual card catalogs when I worked in a library during high school!) This involved using Mac computers, with a whole new operating system, not to mention the software for the library program.
So I made myself a little one-page "cheat sheet" to make it easier to remember these instructions week to week--not like I even had the opportunity to get to this task each week, so I didn't have enough time to really get familiar with the job.
Now I have a Kindle, and some handy-dandy software that allows me to convert .PDF files to ebook format. I also have some other handy-dandy software that allows me to make .PDF files by copy-and-pasting from WORD. So I took that WORD document, changed it into a .PDF, then changed that into an ebook, which I promptly imported into the Kindle.
I'm a proud geek tonight.
