TheMostBeautifulQRCode.com (www.qrhacker.com) is having a contest! Here is my entry; sign up for their free version to try out the QR Code generator, it has many features. I added the photo as a foreground and background image and then adjusted the opacity until it would scan with Norton Snap and i-nigma, my favorite QR Code scanner on my iPad, Android phone and tablet.
I enjoy reading. libraries and QR Codes, so I thought I would bring them all together in my latest project: the QR Code Portable Bookshelf. I was going to call it the QR Code portable Library, but a Library is much more than a collection of books.
The Portable Bookshelf is a collection of PDF files that consists of Project Gutenberg books. I have included a QR code linking to the free e-book and a QR code that searches Amazon.com for the Kindle e-book. I tested the QR Codes with my iPad and Android phone, each allowed for easy downloading and viewing the ebooks. I added the Amazon Kindle links since so many people have Kindles or the Kindle software.
The PDF is formatted for printing on 8.5″ x 11″ paper or 4″x1″ labels (Avery 5161 4 x 1 Labels). This should make the bookshelf truly portable, either as a series of 8.5×11 pages or individual lablels! Onlinelabels.com has 4″x1″ REMOVABLE labels! Using these labels you could place the QR Code Portable Bookshelf anywhere and easily remove the labels later!
If there is enough interest I will create more portable bookshelves, I downloaded the entire 40,000+ Project Gutenberg Library Catalog. I can create a new PDF for internationl users (A4 pager size) if there is any interest.
I’m still working on the sorting, right now it is reversed sorted by author, still working on how to get the best sort for optimal presentation on a full page.
Here is the link to the Portable Library PDF files with QR Codes to Project Gutenberg free e-books and for Amazon Kindle e-books (right click to save or left click to open in a new window.)

Here is a very cool youth calendar by Colin Schlegal of Rocky Mountain Calvary Chapel, Alberta Canada. He used my blog to make a couple of cool QR codes, and used my random bible verse QR Code script for his secret message. Reload the link or scan the secret message QR Code a few times to see the messages. I think it worked great and looks good too. Check out the calendar link here:
