#14 Loan Feature

Next Minor Release

First of all thanks for your effort, this is a great
program. One cool feature I'd like to see, though,
would be a loan feature. Nothing too sophisticated,
just a possibility to right-click an item an mark it as
loaned plus enter the name of the person I loaned it
to. Would be nice to be able to save names of people in
a table so I can select from a list rather than having
to type the same names everytime (and it's basically
always the same guys borrowing your stuff ;-)
And there wouldhave to be a report to print out which
item I loaned to who. That's about it. Oh, yes,
probably record the date when entering the loan so I
can see if that guy borrowed it a year ago or 2 weeks
(I always fail to remember that kind of stuff and it's
really annoying to ask someone to return your stuff and
them answering something like "Well, I thought I might
actually be allowed to read it before returning and I
didn't quite finish those 600 pages since yesterday...")

But anyway, already a good program as it is...

And yes, one more thing: Is there a way to change (or
rather add) the data retrieved from Amazon? As Amazon
has the ISBN listed it would be the fastest way to
enter a book by just entering the ISBN (it doesn't work
right now so the search is probably not searching in
that field). Especially for classics there are many
editions with the same name and it is hard to find the
correct one just by the title. It would be a lot more
straightforward to just enter the ISBN. Also in the
data downloaded from Amazon the ISBN is not included
and with the provided data it is not always easy to
verify I picked the right edition.
