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 started as a PDF file that consists of the Top 100 Project Gutenberg books based on the number of downloads (caution contains the Kama Sutra). I have since added additional PDF files based other Top 100 lists and PDF files for indivudal classic authors.
I included a QR code linking to the book on Project Gutenberg and a QR code to search for the book on Amazon.com. 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 landscape PDFs are formatted for printing on 8.5″ x 11″ paper or 4″x1″ labels (Avery 8161 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!
I also added a portrait 8.5″ x 11″ paper size with 5″x1″ book spines. I could not find any labels this size, but the pages print nicely and the book titles are much easier to read on the 5″x1″ spines.
Here is the link to the QR Code Portable Library PDF files.
