I use Goodreads, which is a huge help when reading series and when I'm at the bookstore deciding if I want to buy a certain book. My favorite feature is the scan feature. I hold the book in front of my phone and it find the book.
My library is organized according to genre. It works best for me. If any of you reading this do likewise, I'd like to hear about it.
Free programs can be a big help in that list-making; you just enter the ISBN number and all the rest is done automatically. Then you can export the list into a spreadsheet that works with Excel. It will supply more columns to sort by, including the Dewey number; you can even 'tag' each entry with your own categories. My favorite is www.librarything.com. GoodReads.com is another good one, and there are others. Good timesavers.
