Saving me money
"I have a collection of several hundred books. Most of which are genealogy and history books. Many have similar titles. In addition to saving me money by preventing from buying a book that I already own, Book Collector provides me quick access to the contents of my books when I am trying to research an ancestor or historical event. The Notes Section allows me to add my own notes concerning a particular book. Also when someone ask me where I got a particular book, I able to tell them along with the price I paid. It obvious that a lot thought into the design of this program."

"Thank you for your speedy responses with answers to my questions. As you explained, my scanner works fine with your software and is making logging my books seem almost magical. My daughter introduced me to your software a couple years ago, but I was slow in getting started – shame on me!
One reason your software is such a gift to me is that about 11 years ago while logging information on about 1500 books on index cards and on my computer, a flood hit our area and our home was affected. I lost about 700 books to the flood and never went back to update my personal library. Since that loss, I’ve purchased many more books to add to those remaining – and inadvertently bought some of them more than once, hence my need for better organization of my books – and with your software I’m quickly updating my records.
Within a short period of time I used my scanner to log nearly 400 books and have asked my granddaughter to come and help me with the rest of the project in a few weeks after she graduates from high school and before she heads off to college. We look forward to working on this project together. What a treat it is to watch those books jump onto the screen with all pertinent information, just by using a scanner and making a few clicks on my keyboard to save what popped up.
I was pleasantly surprised when seeing more book and author details than I was aware of, too – including links for information on Wiki... The list is great and has such a great user-friendly sorter by title or author. When browsing around and clicking on the Images tab and seeing the books lined up on book shelves, I actually leaned back and laughed with surprising joy. Clicking on the Cards tab showed me the little cards complete with each book’s information, and I was amazed.
I’ll highly recommend your software to others and want to thank you so much for this delightful program."

Saved the day
"My wife and I are Seniors and use your Book Collector all the time. We read e-books and have over 800 in our library.
As Seniors, we had a hard time remembering which books we have read
and many times we would download a book and get half way through it
and then realize we had already read that book.
Then we FOUND BOOK COLLECTOR and it sure saved the day, week and
We have it on our tablets and desktop computers so everything always
stays up to date.
Thank you very much."

I know some good s/w when I see it
"Thanks for all your help and your wonderful programs. I have worked with professional cataloging s/w for 15 years (I catalog at the family history library in salt lake city, utah), and so I know some good s/w when I see it, and I just love this s/w for doing the cataloging of my books and videos and things back home."

If you wanna best...
"The best of the best I've ever seen or used. Everything works as
described. The OSX version is highly complex (mean: it knows
everything), yet very easy to use, and all customizable! All you can
try free with the sample database, or even with 100 own books.
Infinite easy to sync between OSX and iOS applications. The mobile
application can also scan the ISBN, so you can promptly import a new
book. If you do not find a book in the central database, you can to
upload, and after that everyone reach it. This is great! On the other
part, the mobile version is always with me, so I know what I already
have and what's on my wish list. Anywhere and anytime. This is
But the most superior is the SUPPORT. They are fast, nice, helpful,
effective. This is at least 6 stars (from 5)!"

No more duplicates
"My husband gave me book collector as a Christmas gift to
catalog my collection of 4,500 books. When I went to book sales, I sometimes purchased duplicates of books I already owned. With the export function of Book Collector, I put a list of my books on my cellphone and now check the list before I buy another book. In addition to organizing my collection, your product has saved me from wasting money on duplicates.
Thank you very much for your help. Your directions were clear and easy to follow. Book Collector is now
correctly installed on my new computer. I appreciate your expert

It is a wonderful program that you have designed and I really love having all my cookbook collection listed clearly in one place and also makes for easy reference.
Thank you so much again for being there and easy to call on for assistance."

I enjoy it immensely
"I can tell that a TON of very careful thought went into the latest design of your database. I particularly like your changeover to the subscription system and constant updates. Your updates are much easier to implement than other updates of software that I have experience with.
The CLZ Cloud is awesome as a backup to a loss of the database resident on the computer - a serious problem that does happen to some. I enjoy it immensely - especially when I can use all the bells and whistles available. The iPhone app is super too, cause I have my collection with me at all times
to check on. Finally, the CLZ Barry app is killer."

This is the way to go
"I've been using Book Collector for many years now and it's been great.
Recently I had a little hiccup while transferring to a new computer.
Fortunately, the support from Collecterz.com was incredible. They
really went above and beyond and I'm happy to report my new machine is
up and running. This is really what customer service should be. I
cannot recommend them enough.
If you want to keep track of a collection
and have great support behind you, this is the way to go."

Without Book Collector, I’d be in a real pickle.
"I just downloaded the latest version of Book Collector, and was tickled to see the little gear sitting next to the Alphabet Bar. I clicked on it, and voila…I now have a choice of filtering by title or author.
Thanks so much for adding this, and making it easy to configure.
Once again, your work makes my life a whole lot easier. My library continues to grow
. Without Book Collector, I’d be in a real pickle."

Love of books
"Thank you very much for your reply. I am greatly appreciative of same; and it service such as that, coupled with the quality of the software that make book collector a most valuable asset in my continuing love of books. You people are to be commended!
That all being said; through trial and error and perhaps an extra martini last evening; I finally got my act together and got everything sorted out. As we used to say back in the jungles of Vietnam with the Marine Corps in the late 60s prior to going out on a patrol: "GOOD TO GO SIR!"
Thank you again very much for your help.
Make doubly certain that you have a nice day!"
