Here's what customers have to say about Book Collector:

"We have spent many hours cataloging books in our book collector software. The software is awesome! Really, one of the best I have ever used and very affordable. It is so simple and intuitive. My seven-year old does a lot of cataloging and really enjoys it. She often says she wants to be a librarian. ;) Well done!"
Erin Daly (USA)
Simple to use
"Thank you for your software! It is simple to use with a pleasant interface while being functionally detailed. Soon when I have entered more titles and our database reaches a critical size, we will download a few iphone apps so my parents can view what they have while traveling.
The app capability made the difference in us choosing your software. Already a friend of my parents has asked me to catalog their books for them when I complete our library.
No doubt, I will use another license of your software to do that. "
Martin (United Arab Emirates)
Wonderful programme
"Being a librarian, I have been asked to start and am using you wonderful programme. Persuaded them to buy your programme and it works well! "
Sonia Worthington-Smith (USA)
I love this product
"I recently purchased the Book Collecter. I haven't gotten anywhere near done cataloging everything, but it's already been a great help. Found out that 1 bookshelf stacked normally as oppossed to packed, holds 150 books (as we have another 5 shelves stuffed to the gills in one room alone, this is important)
I've also found that the CueCat can be finicky and sometimes barcodes don't match the book.
Also neat, Book Collecter does MANGA! Overall, I love this product and can happily say I'll probably by more in the future."
Sammy Higley (USA)
Thank you!
"After trying several ways and programs on cataloging my extensive book collection, I am really pleased with Thank you...thank you...thank you!"
Robert Gander (USA)
Working perfectly
"Using CLZ Barry and Book Collector to catalog my collection of game books.
It's working perfectly. Thanks!"
Michael F Zabkar (USA)
Great tools
"Spent most of the day working on building and filling bookcases with books for our "library" - enjoy using the software by - great tools to catalog books and movies!"
LauraLee Dooley (USA)
Fast and easy
"I just finished cataloging about 50 books. It was fast and easy with the scanner.
I still have two big boxes of books to catalog but with the scanner working it won't take long."
Gary Thorne (USA)
My book-life hassle free!!
"By the way, I do want to say that in the very short time I have had it, I am absolutely LOVING(!!!) the program! I think it is the most fantastic piece of cataloging software on the market!

It is incredibly easy to use, versatile, intuitive, & adaptable to the user.
I have already entered in half my collection (over 1K books), have spent oodles of time [easily] configuring the program to my needs, and can't wait to get the rest of my books into it and tinker with it some more!!
Thanks again for making my book-life hassle free!!

Happily, one satisified book & catalog geek!"

Greg Carriveau (USA)
This was the one for me
"I found your site when I was surfing the web trying to find a good template or sample database to use to catalog my books. Yours sounded so much better than anything I had found I had to download and try the trial version.
After only using it for about 30 minutes I knew this was the one for me and purchased the Pro version.
In only three days (about 2 1/2 hours each) I have already put about a third of my collection (250+) in. Have had only a handful not found in the automatic search and I found those by using author/title search.
I love the ease of use!

I was losing control of knowing what I had and purchasing duplicates but no more. I love the fact I can put them all in so I have control back and then go back and add more detail if I want as time permits.

Rest assured your software will be the first I recommend to anybody I know that is looking for something to handle a collection. "

Steve Wiese (USA)
Thanks for the software!
"Got the program about 2 months ago, but just now sitting down to catalog all my books.
The last count in approximately 2003 was at over 250, and after working for 2 years at Books-A-Million, I can only imagine it has nearly doubled.
Thanks for the software!"
Sarah Kennedy (USA)
Giggling the whole time
"Wow! You are fabulous, amazing, cheerful, helpful and a grand problem solver! It worked and I am now going to spend the day cataloging my vast book collection. Thanks!

I will go out and buy some tulips to remind me of you. That is no small feat in Saudi Arabia!

--45 minutes later...--

I have just finished scanning 150 books and was giggling the whole time. What an amazing product.
Perhaps I should have been a librarian rather than an educator! Thanks again!"

Ellen Alquist 
Well done!
"I love this application!!
I've been able to catalog my books which number close to 2000 with no trouble and no headaches. I was able to get a selected group ready for sale and listed on a website so easily it was kinda scary.

The person who came up with this is a friggin genius and obviously had a collection of their own they struggled with.

Well done!"

Linda DeBauge 
Great program
"You have a great program. It gives a collector a huge amount of information and I love it that it gets plot summaries and cover art. Brilliant! It's the kind of look and feel that I would have designed if I had done it myself.

If I were just starting to catalog my book collection I would have immediately bought your software and the scanner."

E. David Gamble 
Dreaming about for years!
"I just purchased Book Collector Pro this morning. It is exactly the kind of tool that I have been dreaming about for years!

Since I have a large collection of pre-ISBN books, notably from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, the ability to search the Library of Congress and other national libraries is especially valuable. I have struggled for years to keep an accurate catalog of my books, their values, and their conditions.

Your program will turn a tedious task into an enjoyable one. Thanks !"

Bruce Lucas 
User friendly software
"I'm currently a student at The Citadel who is an avid reader. I had no way of cataloging my personal library before, but thanks to this user friendly software I will never buy the same book twice again. Thank you once more."
Aaron Shaw 
Excellent value for money
"I have always been a bit sceptical about testimonials on websites, but after using your programs, Book Collector and Movie Collector for the last few days, albeit somewhat intensely, I have finished cataloging my Movie collection (about 400 DVD's) and made a dent in my Book Collection (200 out of about 5,000 books), I find all of the fine comments made by others to be absolutely true.

It is a pleasure to do business with a group of people who have great functional products, a superb service attitude and all at excellent value for money."

Bob Evans 
The perfect solution
"Let me start by saying that your product is amazing. I looked for several years for a viable software option to catalogue a choral music library.

When I finally found the book collector online it easily provided all the answers that I needed. Because of its adaptability and customizing options it was the perfect solution to my cataloging needs."

Devon Howard 
A book lover's dream
"I just wanted to take a brief moment and thank you for producing Book Collector, a book lover's dream!

Using your program, I have been able to quickly and easily catalog all of the important information concerning the hundreds of books I currently own. Not only that, but I also have been able to track books not yet published by favorite authors, and books on loan to my friends.

I love the ability to sort on almost any field (author, title, genre), and the ability to sort on user defined fields (books I do not yet own). I love the ability to print lists of my books according to almost any criteria.

Thank you so much for such an excellent program! Well worth the small price I paid!"
