Ease of use
"I just wanted to tell you all how pleased I am with this program. I just started cataloging my collection, and after a short period to set up things the way I wanted, it's been smooth as silk. I'm amazed at the flexibility and ease of use.
Great job to all of you at Collectorz.com! "

LIKE this program
"I really do LIKE this program very much: it makes cataloguing my collection so easy and very automated and helps me a lot in not inadvertently ordering duplicates!"

"Your software is a "god send'' for a collection this size."

An amazing product
"I bought (after downloading the Trial) Book Collector in December and am loving it soooo much ~ thank you :-) ... Now my Hubby said I think it's time to buy the Movie Collector ... so we're just testing it and we're so impressed ~ it's wonderful to see it's exactly the same (I know it sounds obvious but not every companies seems to get that !!) ... fairly certain we will be buying the Pro edition within a few weeks ! ~
Thank you so much for such an amazing product .. I know this won't be for everyone as lots of people like to see their collection but we're trying to 'downsize' before moving and we don't want to get rid of anything ~ your collector software will allow us to put the hundreds of DVDs in small(ish) storage cases and have all the 'covers' and info to hand on our laptop ~ Brilliant :-)"
Mandy Inglis (United Kingdom)
"I bought my wife Book Collector Pro, since she was becoming 'very' interested in the eBooks. From the beginning, she had no way of keeping track the hundreds of e-books she had collected. The problem only got worse as her collection increased in size.
So, being the shiny knight in armor, I introduced her to Book Collector.
I have to say, for the relatively low cost of Book Collector Pro, I have scored a 'lot' of points with my wife. As you probably already figured out, I'm scoring 'more' points every time she uses Book Collector Pro.;)"
Bob Sintzel (Canada)
So well catalogued
"With bushfires threatening our house yet again, it is wonderful to know that our collection of books
is so well catalogued
if anything happens.
Of course all the signed ones will be grabbed to put in the car for the getaway if the fire gets closer, but replacing the rest will be easier knowing what we had in the first place. "
Kathy Black (Australia)
Just want to say THANK YOU
"I recently discovered MovieCollector while trying to help a friend with his (obviously) movie collection
...he has a few thousand DVD and Blu-Ray, and is basically our neighborhood sharing point for any films. But he was having troubles figuring out who had what film, and what he even had (especially with sequels etc) so basically, I went looking for a solution, and found your wonderful software!
5 minutes testing it.....and he bought the pro version with a laser scanner!
A couple weeks later, I was looking at my book collection (rough guess, between my wife and I at least 10k) and realized....I know a company that makes a book collection software.......
10 minutes later...........bought it.
So basically, thank you for making some really great software that has made 2 new customers very happy....and these 2 will definitely recommend your products to others!"
William Ebaugh (Germany)
"Although I haven't yet had time to fully explore all of the features of the software, I have been greatly impressed with the features that I am already using, and overall I find the software very user-friendly and a great tool for managing a personal library
It's the sort of thing I dreamed of having 20 years ago when I first started building my collection, and I have recommended it to several friends with large collections like my own.
The fact that you have people available to offer such excellent customer support makes me all the more impressed with your company"
Kelly M. Fiske (USA)
I am amazed!
"I am amazed! No matter what I need to do to enter old or new books in my library
into Book Collector, your program has a way to do it. I am so impressed.
When I complete this project, I shall surely purchase Music Collector for my A/V and sheet music collection.
Thank you for easy-to-use, intuitive software. Your online searchable manuals are excellent."
Warren Rubin (USA)
Making it a lot easier!
"i've just starting using Collectorz for a substantial collection of books

"Love It Love It, I wish it had been around when I had first started my book collection
Lezli Wolkenhauer (USA)
"After trying several ways and programs on cataloging
my extensive book collection, I am really pleased with Collectorz.com. Thank you...thank you...thank you!"
Robert Gander (USA)
"I like the hard work you guys put in to build the best book collector's organizing set of tools
that will enable me to do just that with all my books. I purchased all the tools but have yet to get it entirely functional because I have too many other things going on right now too. But with a little more time I will be set up.
I am anxious to discover just how large my personal collection is (my guess is about 2,000 books), to have it organized, an to enjoy the full functionality of it all. I will be happy to share before and after photos of my current mess versus my organized structure that is one of my primary projects now, including a new custom build home library with floor to ceiling bookcases in my office.
Thanks to all you folks in Amsterdam, Steve from Oklahoma City"
Steve Copeland (USA)
"I absolutely love the app and the program. I love the price even more.
I have always dreamed about creating a list of my extensive book collection
(5,000 +), by inputting the ISBNs
. However, all the products out there are ridiculously expensive or are not really Mac OSX compatible.
I love the fact that I can use my iPhone as the scanner and keep a list of my library in an accessible format. This is something I've been waiting since I started graduate school.
Congratulations on a great product."
Marcel Ponton (USA)
"Using CLZ Barry and Book Collector to catalog my collection
of game books.
It's working perfectly. Thanks!"
Michael F Zabkar (USA)
I am having a blast
"First, you should know I am a software engineer, having been in the business for nearly 30 years. I have coded more languages and environments than I care to remember! :-)
I must tell you that, when I saw the Web page advertising your Books collection database, I was enthusiastic. Here at last was what I needed to grapple with my 2,000 book library! I was not sure how well the software would work, but I took a chance and downloaded the premium version.
I cannot express adequately how literally overjoyed I am at using your software. It actually exceeds my professional expectations in every way. I found the tool intuitive to use, friendly, and IT WORKS!!!!! I am having a blast using it, and will unhesitatingly recommend it to all my friends.
Working, high-quality software is a rarity - as you must well know.
THANK YOU for deviating from the norm and producing such an exemplary product."
Jacques Caillault (USA)
A time saver
"Thank you for putting together an inventory program for my book collection
. It has been a blessing to use.
It eliminates writing/typing down every deatail of each every book it is definately a time saver. "
John W. (USA)
An excellent product
"Before retiring I was involved in the development and distribution of several database applications internal to the company for which I worked. I want to congratulate the development team for producing this fine product.
I reviewed several other products online before purchasing this one and I am convinced I made the right choice. Ease of use and flexibility are two of its strongest points. The user can accept the default field values and definitions or customize for personal use.
As delivered, it is oriented toward a collection of fiction but it can be easily customized to include nonfiction or to configure for nonfiction only. The inclusion of the Library of Congress and Dewey decimal fields are particularly valuable in a nonfiction collection.
Data entry is easy
. The user can key in field values manually or key in only the ISBN number and have the program automatically search for the remaining fields including a picture of the book cover.
I have had only one question and got a prompt response by e-mail but the product is so intuitive that I solved my problem before getting an answer from customer support.
All in all an excellent product with a fair price."
Cass Moret (USA)
A pleasure to work with
"Since a couple of days I'm working with your Book-Collector Software. You have done a great work, to make this computer program.
Every day I take 25 books of my Collection and put them in the database
. I have a collection about 1,200 books about karate, martial arts, spirituality and Asian philosophy.
It is a really pleasure to work with it and it is so easy to do!
Thank you very much.
The Dokan Karate Foundation, The Netherlands"
Andre Brockbernd (Netherlands)
"This is simply me saying thank you for producing exactly what I want
to allow me catalogue my simple book collection
. The software is
intuitive to use and gives me all the features I need - and a ton of
features I won't use but I'm sure somebody would.
I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and my main PC died so I installed the programme on my laptop. At first it wouldn't run but then I found your FAQ page and the explanation of the bkclck file and hey presto it works.
How very civilised that you appreciate that people genuinely do want and need to use your software on different machines with no
Keep up the good work - Merry Christmas."
Graham Legg (United Kingdom)
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
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)
I'm Happy I Did
"My boyfriend got me the Collectorz Books as a birthday gift. I wanted to let you know that I love this software.
I'm a huge reader and I had been looking for something to categorize
and keep up with my collection
and I stumbled across this one day and I'm happy I did. I did get the app also!
I have an iPhone so this was the best thing to take with me when I'm out shopping for books.
I told one of my colleagues at work about this collection because he has a ton of movies and he purchased the Collectorz Movies and he loves it.
Thank you all for creating such wonderful software that I've been looking for!"
Sophia Phillips (USA)
900 Books Logged So Far
"I looooove Book Collectorz and Movie Collectorz - I have over 900 books logged
so far - more to go; and over 300 movies - a small collection but still great to have them catalogued
Thanks for everything."
Lea-Anne Leavens (Canada)
One Of The Best
"This is one of the best programs around! I absolutely love the iPhone app.
Since I've scanned my collection
in, I haven't bought a single duplicate! Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this!"
Terri Adam (USA)
I'm hooked for life!
"I've never wanted to write to a company thanking them for their product before (although I've been known to write a complaint or two!), but I'm so impressed with BOOK COLLECTOR that I had to do it!
Before discovering this program, I'd been toying with the idea of creating an Access database for my 1,200+ library of books, but I couldn't keep it simple enough to actually get started. I wanted
cross-references, AND lots of categories and sub-categories, AND a method for keeping track of each book's location, AND a way to record my own synopses and notes, AND. . .well, I wanted it all.
The whole thing just seemed too much like work, so I gave up and did a google search for book inventories, and (gasp!) there you were!
I browsed through the many screenshots, read the FAQ's and testimonials, and I couldn't believe it!
It was as if you'd been reading my mind!
What impressed me even more was the fact that I used the support link to email a question about the program, and I got a super-fast response. I wasn't even a customer yet, but you took the time to answer me right away. That's an awfully good indication of the kind of support I'd enjoy once I actually purchased BOOK COLLECTOR.
So that's what I did, and now I'm hooked for life!
Not only is BOOK COLLECTOR exactly what I wanted (and then some), but it's fast, reliable, easy to use and (WOW!) stable. Ordinarily, I tend to lose interest in the repetitive process of entering information, but this program is actually fun to use!
In fact, I keep discovering more great features - like the ability to enter the websites for authors, publishers and so forth, and have an active, underlined hyperlink with each of their books. This is something I never would've thought to include in the database I was trying to plan! And that's
just the most RECENT feature I've gotten excited about!
I'm over a quarter of the way through entering my books in BOOK COLLECTOR now, and even though my collections of DVD's and music CD's aren't nearly as large as my library of books, you can count on the fact that I'll be buying MUSIC COLLECTOR and MOVIE COLLECTOR in the
Also, I have a large collection of stones and crystals, and while browsing your FAQ's, I got the idea to try out PHOTO COLLECTOR for keeping track of them. So, that another one of your apps I'll be needing! I simply cannot get over the versatility of these amazing programs! They're worth every penny!
So, please accept my heartfelt thanks, and forgive me for using this support link to send this to you. - I know I'm probably overlooking something obvious, but I couldn't find another email address to use, and I simply HAD to tell you how happy I am with BOOK COLLECTOR!
THANK YOU!!! "
Clz Books - brilliant!!
"Just what I have been waiting for.
Successfully imported over 3400 titles from my collection
Well done. "
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
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!
