The best
"Love CLZ. Have all of my books and related info catalogued in the best and most accessible of ways."

WONDERFUL program
"Just as a side note, I’ve been very pleased with Book Collector. It is a WONDERFUL program. Although I’m prone to editing my desktop copies of the downloaded Core pages to suit my personal tastes, the Core still saves a remarkable amount of time.
My very best to you all, you’ve done a GREAT JOB with these programs!"
R.W. (USA)

BRAVO
"I am a happy retired 78 years old computer enthusiast. I have been using Book collector now for several years, on and off. Recently I purchased the mobile version to use with my iPad. What a change since the beginning. I love it more and more.
I do not have a question for you today, I simply want to tell you BRAVO and thank you to all the team for your excellent work."

A real time saver
"I love your programs (I also have the Music Collector). I have an extensive library of English and German language books. A substantial part of my library is reference material and Book Collector and its search features are a real time saver. I currently employ an IT student for data entry and proof his work on my iPad. The next step for myself will be entering all my eBooks. I use the iPad for my own data entry. Works great!"

6+ stars
"I have been using Book Collector for a very long time now. It has steadily shown a continual process improvement and in my humble opinion is better than some of the large library cataloging system software my wife used as a librarian. Recently I just added Movie Collector to the collection software I now use and it is also a great product.
I highly recommend all of the apps Alwin and the folks at CLZ have developed. The interface is intuitive and easy to follow. The money spent on these programs is money well spent. I love the update program as it allows one to be absolutely sure that you are in possession of the latest version and fixes. My personal rating for these PROGRAMS is 6+ stars....
Thanks to all of the CLZ team."

Book Collector reviews in 2016:


Tremendous product
"I couldn't let this year end without telling you how pleased I am with Collectorz for Books. I am the "librarian" at Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation, one of scores of American non profits which memorialize our many Civil War battlefields. I paid for the program with my own funds, since CCBF operates on a shoestring, with most of our energy and funds going to our effort to preserve what many consider "sacred" land since it was drenched with the blood of our ancestors.

I deeply appreciate your unending quest to improve your already tremendous product without gouging your current customers to acquire the latest improvement, unlike some bigger companies I could name!
All the best in the new year. I'm glad I discovered you; it's made cataloging our numerous holdings ever so much easier!"

Gene Betit (USA)

Love it
"Thank you very much for the prompt email and the solving of the problem. I use both your Music and Book collector software and love it. I am always telling friends and family how good the software works and that they should use it if they need this kind of functionality."
Rob Mennie (Canada)

Awesome
"Awesome update Alwin! Much more user friendly...and going to your website to add the unknown ISBN was a pain. Thanks for continuing to make the program better!"

Professional experience
"Dear Team at CLZ,
I can not tell you how grateful I am with the whole process. My laptop crashed and I lost all my data on the database. Weeks and weeks of work was gone. I contacted your Team desperately and explained the issue. It was like a breath of a fresh air, what an experience, patience and professional experience I had. My issue was resolved within few days and I got all my data back.
I can not thank you guys enough. Special thanks to Sytske Hermans. I can not say enough great things really.
Thank you so much."
Sarvin Haghighi (USA)
September 23, 2016
Love the software
"I use the CLZ Books and I love the software. To give you an idea how long I've been using it, before I updated my software to version 16 yesterday, my version was in the 7's."
‎Michelle Culbertson‎ (USA)

Avoid duplicates
"I use the book collector and am going to get the movie one soon as while I don't have as many DVD's as books, it's getting to the point where I don't remember what I have and what I don't. I've printed out the book list and take it with me to booksales now to avoid duplicates."
Amanda Witt (Australia)

Love the software
" Love the software..book collector...love the $2.50 monthly auto pay. For less than a 🍔 I can get every update you guys make to improve the software!!!"

July 09, 2016
You guys rock
"Thank you, thank you. All 180 books (in cloud, oops haven't synched my desktop in a while, shame shame on me) came in successfully. Greatly appreciated. You have a great evening and tell Alwin to take you out to dinner for being so awesome at supporting customers.
As always, you guys rock, and keep up the great work. Looking forward to renewing my subscriptions and trying out the new desktop app features very soon."
Thomas Christian (USA)

Cloud saved me

Patrick Marinich (USA)

"OOOMMMGGG!!!! You guys seriously rock!!! Yesssss!!!
Thank you so very very very much! If I were closer to your place, I’d bring you a box of chocolates so big, you could feed your staff for a year!"

Having a blast
"I bought Book Collector Pro Edition for my Mac and so far, it has been a godsend to someone like me who has about 3,000 books in my personal library. I also purchased a CLZ Barry to conveniently scan the books and add them to my collection. I’m getting more and more familiar with navigating the Book Collector and I'm having a blast with it!"
Joy Masler (USA)
July 02, 2016
Yeah team!!!
"FYI - program is great! I am frequently recommending it - especially at book sales.
Keep up the good work - yeah team!!!"

Fantastic
"Keep up the good work. The program is fantastic. It’s one I’ve been wanting for a while and looking for. Thanks much to all at Collectorz.com."

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."
Joe Tillman (USA)
May 30, 2016
Love the way it works
"Have just finished the first part of my collection. Now have 6,830 books catalogued. Just thrilled. Somehow the remaining 2000+ doesn't seem to be so daunting. Just love the way it works. OUTSTANDING! Trying to persuade all my family and friends to get onto Collectorz early! Always enjoy your FB posts. Keep them up."
Phillip Baugniet (Canada)

A blessing

Delightful 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."

The greatest thing

Beautiful piece of programming
"I’m still on the nursery slopes of the learning curve but already I can say, with unusual confidence for a beginner, what a truly beautiful piece of programming. Recommended with enthusiasm."
Richard Dawkins, writer (United Kingdom)
April 05, 2016
Invaluable
"The apps are invaluable in making sure that I don’t buy something I already have!"
Martin Pilkington (United Kingdom)

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 year... We have it on our tablets and desktop computers so everything always stays up to date.
Thank you very much."
Bob and Nancy (USA)

Excellent support
"Finally I want to thank you for the excellent support you have provided. Your prompt responses kept me from giving up on Book Collector. I’ve enjoyed using Book Collector for years and did not want to lose it. Thanks again."

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."
Shon Edwards (USA)
March 14, 2016
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 essential!
But the most superior is the SUPPORT. They are fast, nice, helpful, effective. This is at least 6 stars (from 5)!"
Zoltan Cserhati (Hungary)

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 assistance."
Susan Godlewski (USA)
January 27, 2016
Magnificent
"Really appreciate all your help and the great work you and your team are doing. This latest version, having worked with your software since the early days, is simply magnificent."
Phillip Baugniet (Canada)
January 20, 2016
wonderful program
"Thank you both so much for your assistance, Hubby (My personal CTO) has not been well and finally got to the task of fixing my book collector and all is right with the world again and I can carry on loading this pile of books. 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."

Book Collector reviews in 2015:


Better with each update
"I really like the new QuickSilver version of Book Collector; not only is it beautiful, but it seems to run smoother too. I'm so happy that I found you guys back at the beginning and I appreciate the fact that you continue to make Book Collecter better and better with each update and build."
Tom Taylor (USA)

Great product
"I wanted to write a short note and say thanks for a great product. I have been able to organize my library in ways I never thought possible. When I have encountered issues (user error), or had questions, your customer support was solid and immediate. I am grateful to all of you for your hard work and wonderful product. I hope your year ends well, and that 2016 is a strong one for you."
Richard Bush (USA)

Excellent
"I was about to send you a message asking for an enhanced feature, but after a little poking around I found that I already had it.
So instead, let me just say that your Book Collector software is excellent and I'm very glad to have found it!"

I'm blown away
"I've loved your software from the start but now I'm blown away. I love the easy sync to my other devices (I have android and ios versions, phone and ipad) and now I see the improvements to cloud view as well.

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."
John S. Roberge (USA)
August 24, 2015
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."
Jeff Vibes (USA)

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."
Dave Novick (USA)
August 13, 2015
All works perfectly
"Do not need help but have just bought Barry and tried it. All works perfectly and just like to say that the combination of Book Collector and Barry is just brilliant. Many thanks for a brilliant solution to the problems of keeping track of my books."

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!"

This isn't really a question. It's a thank you
"I'm very impressed with the Collectoz software, and the responsiveness of the tech support team. Every time I think I've found every facet of the software, I find another feature that makes data entry just that much easier and quicker.
Book Collector is the software I've wanted for 20 years, and I'm glad to finally have it!"
Ellen Edge (USA)

Collectorz program
"I told a French friend who was the prior of a monastery in France about your Collectorz program. He downloaded it and with it was able to find a book that even the French National Library in Paris did not have, so he used the program for his monastery library work and admitted that it sped up his work very much."
Pachomius Vu (United Kingdom)
March 09, 2015
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!"
Ira Wexler (USA)

We love our Book and Movie Collector

Book Connect 2.0
"Awesome, i love it, great job. I love the fact that i can just keep scrolling down the page and it doesnt stop at 50 book covers, it just keeps going and going and going. This is so much easier as i reguarly search for my next Audiobook to listen to by scrolling through my covers and seeing what appeals to me next. Previously loading each page especially on my phone was very slow. Now it works so seamlessly. Brilliant im really impressed"
Shad Foster (Netherlands)

Important organizing factor
"Your product is sufficiently flexible that I was able to set up one database for professional journal articles and the other for books. I am a college professor, and your software has become an important organizing factor in my research."
Kenneth Curry (USA)
September 17, 2014
Great catalogue programme
"About 95% of the books are now catalogued! All the book cases and shelves done, just the boxes to tackle. Last count 1.028 catalogue entries which includes several boxed sets so lots more books than that total LOL.
All I can say is thank you to Collectorz.com for the great catalogue programme. Made my life a lot easier."

Served us so well

July 01, 2014
Unbelievable
"This program is unbelievable! I've had my own version in Microsoft Access for years and with the purchase of an IPhone I wanted to get the inventory on the IPhone; In no time at all I was able to import over 8,000 books. I've transferred to them to my IPhone also very quickly. The barcode scanning technique works perfectly with a $9,99 scanner.
Thrilled to have found it!"
Richard Dayton (USA)

May 12, 2014
Favorite tools
"I have been using Book Collector Pro, Movie Collector, Music Collector and CLZ Books for iPod for several years and found them to be among my favorite tools.
Thanks again for a wonderful product that keeps getting better and better (unlike a lot of software whose "improvements" are dubious)."
John Simonson (USA)
March 24, 2014
Awesome
"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!"

Excellent service

Thomas Bennett (USA)

Book Collector is brilliant
"I think the Book Collector is brilliant. I looked at four other programmes, what decided my purchase besides the amount of detail for each book is your having your own database of books."
David Greenhalgh (United Kingdom)
March 03, 2014
Brilliant
"Just thought I d say that the CLZ apps are the best I have. I know exactly where my movies and books are (I have a few!) and the mobility offered by the iPhone app means that when I'm out and about and see a bargain DVD, Blu Ray or Book there's no danger of me buying something I already had and had forgotten I had as I just check the app !
They really are superb value for money and incredibly useful and fun. Congrats to all the team and thx again for opening my iCloud synching for the book app. Brilliant !"
Bill Max (United Kingdom)
February 13, 2014
Most useful
"Thanks to your professionalism and expertise all systems are now 'GOOD TO GO SIR!" Thank you very much!
I am most appreciative of your remedying that irritating issue that I had. You have a fine product, and I enjoy using same immensely; and find it to be most useful in my travels {what with not duplicating book purchases on the road.}"
Tom Bennett (USA)
January 07, 2014
I like it
"Wow I spent a large part of my holiday time to brush up my entries in the Book Collector. My soon 3,00 books are not yet fully perfectly entered, but that comes. The more I use the software the more I like it ;o)
I love the possibility to update directly from lists (in the Cobalt version), when you have a lot to change, that helps win time. I've a nice customised backdrop and pictos and all... great! Thank you."

Wonderful product
"You have an absolutely wonderful product - with the book collector program we can loan out (and track) hundreds of books to our clients on a monthly basis, and give them access to resources they would otherwise not be able to use - and it's done affordably, which as a non-profit organization is a huge consideration. without this program, we'd still be using pen and paper - and losing a lot of our resources as well, because they are much harder to keep track of that way!"

Saved me a great deal of money

Completed my library
"So happy to have "completed" my library after many many months of work! Count: 3655!!! Now I can FIND things, and all my books are so much better organized. I'm just cleaning up now, trying to complete records and add editors and translators to the proper field, if I can figure that out! Just now playing with how to sort the columns so I can have a printed copy of the essentials by location. Thank you for helping me with what felt like an overwhelming project!"

One great data base/software

I have scanned and categorized 230 + books in a very short time. The next phase - adding books with no bar codes will take longer, but I am confident that it will go well.
The very old books I will leave for the third and final inventory.
What a lot of thoughtful work you have put into this program. Thank you! :)"

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 :-)"

A real improvement on many levels
"I am also taking the opportunity to congratulate you all for the great product that Book Collector is. The new version is a real improvement on many levels.
I love the easy and comprehensive way I can manage my rapidly growing library of over 2,200 books. Without it I wonder how I could manage to have any control.
Keep up the good work."

Very impressed
"From day one, I was very impressed with your program.
Out of curiosity, one of the first books I put into the database was a leather bound French book from 1836. It took no time for the results to come back with the right publisher and other details.

Wow! I was sold on your product."

Tickeled Pink
"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.;)"

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)
January 25, 2013
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."

Book Collector reviews in 2012:


Saved me from buying doubles

I bought the app for iphone quite a while ago as well and it has saved me from buying so many doubles (as I had done frequently in the past)."

Magic DataBases
"By the Bye - as you may note, I have 3 of your excellent Data Bases - Music, Movies and also Books. The former 2 are now complete and am now happily adding the many hundreds books on my very numerous shelves.
I congratulate you on truly magnificent and indeed magic DataBases. They are the very best I have ever used - and there have been quite a number - but never as great as yours. Using them has been a complete continuous pleasure, quite addictive, and the results are superb and more than personally satisfying.
I have spread the news of Collectorz to all who will listen. My sincerest thanks for the magic Data Bases and your continuous support."

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!"

Great tool
"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"

All together
"I LOVE my book collector. I can take my list with me every where I go.
I buy 20 to 30 books a month. My local library sales them for $.25 cents each. I was always calling home to see if I had it. And I buy kindle books online.
This keeps them all together."

Serve my purpose, and more!
"You may or may not recall that I was in contact with you at the beginning of the year asking questions because I have inherited a large library of antique books and classic 'literary' literature in many languages and I was asking if Book Collector would be suitable.

Well, after careful consideration I have purchased the Mac version of Book Collector and even though I haven't had time to catalogue many books it does seem to serve my purpose, and more!
Last night I showed it to a friend who 'is in the know' about cataloguing systems, library databases etc and he was quite impressed with all the options and the user friendly set-up."

Amalia Zimmermann (Spain)

Positive experience
"Thank's very much for your helpful, thorough, and well-thought-out reply to my question.
I appreciate that you gave me several different options, with links to further information.

I particularly appreciate that you thought of checking online for applications that provide password protection, something that somehow hadn't occurred to me. That particular link helped me to identify a simple program that will password-protect the copy of Book Collector that I'll be placing on my friend's computer.

The positive experience that I'm having with Book Collector and with collectorz.com will probably soon lead to my buying additional software for DVDs and/or CDs.

Thanks again for your efforts and expertise."

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.

Thank you for easy-to-use, intuitive software. Your online searchable manuals are excellent."

You all totally rock!
"Wowzers! I ordered my scanner and software on Friday. I made an error, wrote to customer service and they got it all straightened out for me. I got the package yesterday and even with my error they had already corrected the contents before my package arrived.
So today I plugged in the scanner, loaded the software and started scanning. I expected it to be hard. I expected to struggle with it... and it ran perfectly. I can honestly say I have never opened something up and started using it right away with the ease that I have with this software and hardware!
You all totally rock! I will definitely tell my friends about you!"

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)
June 03, 2012
1,285 books listed
"I have 1,285 books listed in my book library. The only way I can keep from buying books I have already read is taking my Ipod, which has the App, with me to the store and the local public library.
In fact I bought the Ipod because Collectorz had an App for it."

Wouldn't know what to do without it. Love you guys. Thanks for the programs."

It will have paid for itself
"If this program keeps me from buying even ONE duplicate book (and I know it will)
it will have paid for itself! I've bought 3 books recently that turned out to be duplicates of
current holdings---they keep changing the covers and it messes me up!! ;-)"
Edie Jardieu (USA)
March 05, 2012
The best
"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)

Great product
"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."

Book Collector reviews in 2011:


This software is amazing
"I was looking for some software that would help me to take my library and get it under control. A fellow Pastor told me that he used Book Collector on his PC and thought it amazing.
I purchased a copy on that recommendation and started to use it. I have to admit that at first it was confusing and a bit overwhelming and the instructions were not the best.
BUT, this product is fantastic. It does everything I wanted. It takes the ISBN number and looks up the book in the CLZ Book Database, it then downloads copy of the cover and all of the pertinent information as well as a summary of the book to your database.
You then input your library information as well as your own notes, annotations, plots, characters, key words, etc. It also asks you for the information of your purchase date, price, where you bought it, etc.
I also allows you to choose categories (and add your own) so that future searches can be done quickly and easily.
It also has a lending tool. You can loan a book to someone and mark that book as "lent out" and it will track the date you loaned it, to whom, where it is and if you want, remind you to seek the return of it after a period of time. Now I won't wonder what I did with a book.
It also allows you to track in your own library where you have the book, in other words, at home, in the office, at school, etc. So, if you take it elsewhere you can mark that and when you look for the book you at least know where you last took it.
BUT THE BEST FEATURE is the scanner tool that you can download for your iPhone or iPod touch. The CLZ Buddy scanner turns your iPhone into a scanner that will pick up the ISBN bar code off your books and automatically fill it into the add feature of the software on your computer. It will allow you to add multiple ISBN's to the que before you search the database. Then you touch "search" and it finds all the info and displays it. You then touch "Add" and all the books are added to your software. It is amazingly simple.
Finally, if you want you can get the mobile app for your iPad or iPhone or iPod touch and download your library database from your computer (via WiFi) to your other device. So, if you are at a meeting and want to reference one of your books, just look it up. If someone asks if you have a book, check whether you do. Or if you are out at Barnes and Noble and see a book but can't remember (happens to all of us) if you already own it, just pull out your iPhone or iPad and check to see if you already own it. No more double purchases.
Well, enough said. This software is amazing. I don't know how I ever got along without it.
Enjoy! It is worth the price."

Info literally flies to my Mac
"Bought Barry for Book Collectorz.
I have to say that with my Samsung Galaxy Note (Android Gingerbread) book info literally flies to my Mac. It scans and reads book information so fast (and puts it on my Mac) that I hardly have time to put them all in!
Really well spent money."

Collectorz.com to the rescue
"How to catalogue your library ....
You may think that I joke about my tea library, collectable books and shelf-improvement library - I kid you not - and I cannot bear to part with a book.
So! Collectorz.com to the rescue. It's terrific and they offer a scanner and app."

Hats off to Collectorz!!!
"I don't usually take the time to leave testimonials. But i had a really frustrating situation with a large retailer today and it occured to me that in that day and age, we should be grateful for the little guys - the entrepreneurs that have the passion and pride to make a really great product.
So, hats off to Collectorz!!!
Your book collectorz software combined with the CLZ Barry app has far exceeded my expectations and has saved me many many hours of valuable time. It is a pleasure to use your product!"
Jody Arthur (USA)

Having fun
"I did it almost twice now: I bought a book that I already have! So I have been searching for a program where I could scan the ISBN bar codes of all my books and let those go into a database. Well, I found the perfect program: Book Collector from Collectorz.com.
I bought the small laser scanner with it and started scanning the first shelf.

This is so much fun. Although the program doesn't find all my books (some of my quilt books are really old and not in print anymore and some front covers are missing), it is still worthwhile to get it all organized.
There's still a lot to be scanned, but once that is done, I can take the database with me and prevent that I buy the same book twice :)"

Loes van der Heijden (Netherlands)

I seriously love this
"I am a recently disabled Army Medic. I have some cognitive problems involving memory among other things. The VA informed me that I should look for software to increase my organization and to combat the memory loss.

I discovered a trial of your program yesterday. Awesome!
I hope this tool will help me organize my books as well as I think it will. It's easy to navigate (important for me!), it's a good memory support tool (no more lists of where I put stuff) and it had a trial (kick the tires).

I seriously love this and am going to recommend it to me Doc at the VA mental health clinic. It really is great.
Thanks for building it!"

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."

Anxious to scan the books
"I just downloaded the book inventory system and the scanner. I got one of my books and scanned it! Up comes the book cover picture, a description, ISBN number. WOW!

The kids are going to help me scan books intomorrow on the last day of school! WOW! This is so reasonable in price and will be so much fun. I think the kids can even scan books for check out (I have to keep reading my instructions, LOL!).

THANK YOU! I now have a way to organize my classroom books (close to 3,000 maybe?). My students are helping me clean my room and are anxious to help scan the books in! I posted on teachers.net about your product so others can have this system!"

It eliminates writing/typing down every deatail of each every book it is definately a time saver."

It is *perfect*
"Hello, my dear Collectorz friends!
I just wanted to say 'thank you' for the latest enhancement to Book Collector - I am absolutely delighted with your update to the Pseudonym function. :-) It is *perfect*.

Thank you, as always, for your wonderful software and cheerful support!"

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."

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.

Book Collector reviews in 2010:


Presto!
"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 malicious reasons.

Keep up the good work - Merry Christmas."

Wonderful Software
" First let me say that I have over 2,000 books and almost 1,000 DVD's and as you can imagine it is extremely hard to keep track of everything. I was constantly buying seconds and even thirds of books and movies. I had tried my best to keep track of them by writing everything down, but inadvertently would miss some or not have the list with me when I purchased new items. Very frustrating and expensive.

I heard about your product for books on television and decided it would be worth a try to at least organize and store the information on my computer, so I purchased the Book Collector software and a CueCat scanner. I got to work and after four days had my complete library of books organized and on my computer.
I was truly surprized by how many extra copies I had (all that money wasted that could have been spent on books I didn't have). I was so impressed that I purchased the Movie Collector and in two days had all of my DVD's organized and on my computer.
I love the fact that on both programs there is the loan section so that when my family borrows movies or books I know who has them and can get them back. (And now they know its on my computer so they know I'm keeping up with it hahahaha).

I recently got the Book Collector update and can I tell you I LOVE IT. It was Wonderful!!!!! I was able to get book covers that had not been available before without having to scan the covers myself. Also I have about 300 E-Books that I wasn't able to show covers for that now I can. GREAT.
I also love the fact that I can link my E-Books to my Book Collector so that I can read them from the site if I choose. This was really helpful when my Nook crashed about a month ago and I was out of town working.
I also love the fact that it is easier to pull up individual authors and see their books even the anthologies where they might be second, third, or sixth author. Thank You So Much....
I just purchased the iPhone App for book collector and exported my books to my iPhone and it is a great tool. Already I have had friends asking me about books I have and I don't have to say that I'll check when I get home.
Again Thanks For The Wonderful Software, I can't wait to see what comes next."

I can quit buying multiple copies
"Wow, great history summary and thanks for all the hours and persistence!
We who utilize your program are so very grateful. At this point I have over 1,200 books on metaphysics and spirituality.
Thanks to you they are conveniently on my iTouch so I can quit buying multiple copies. Once I even bought 3 of one book so I knew it was time to READ THAT BOOK!

Anyway, I'm grateful and wish you to pass that gratitude on to all the worker bees at your company. This gal really likes, uses and recommends your program.
Blessings to you all."

Well worth the money
"We have been using this program for about 6 years now. I just need to upgrade mine to the newer version. But…I can’t say enough good about it.
We actually broke down and for Christmas bought the “Books” scanner. Oh my goodness!!! I have the older version but it was awesome just picking up the book and scanning the barcode. LOL! I would then attach the scanner to my computer and download. I did only work on 2 shelves at a time in case we missed something it was easier to go back to the shelf and narrow it to the book.
We also have the movie collectorz and I have the photo program. Between the books my husband and both brought into our marriage and then starting homeschooling? I hear you…we have ummm…close to 6,000 books. We are actually working on turning the kids toy room into a library and using it as such for our little homeschool group.This has been great for tracking all of my homeschool curriculum!

I didn’t realize we had as many movies as we did until we started scanning. We still had walls of VHS when got the Collectorz program….We ended up 2000 videos/dvds. We have since gotten rid of alot of those…=)
This program is great. I have no connection to the company accept as a purchaser and someone who has used it and swears by it! I am a photographer on the side and love the photo program.

Yes…when a friend wants to “Borrow” a book…you can log it in. I sent a friend of mine (as a joke) a reminder that her books were coming due…LOL. I don’t worry about loaning a book out anymore and forgetting who I loaned it too. My friends all understand and agree…so they sign the card.

Anyway…I love it and it is well worth the money."

Soooo convenient!!
"On a happy note, I now have four of your products, Book Collector (PC and iPhone) and Movie Collector (PC and iPhone), and I love them all, soooo convenient!!
I was at the bookstore with my grandmother and she wasn't sure if we had a certain book already, I whipped out my iPhone and answered her question, even the staff were impressed!!"

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!"

A Kiss to the Designer
"Just upgraded. LOVE it.
The ability to rate the books without going into edit mode.... a kiss to the designer who thought of that.
Also love the book cover finder....no more hours searching manually! 27 book covers found in 20 minutes. The designer of the book cover search gets a kiss from me as well.
Best upgrade I have ever purchased. You guys have really delivered. THANKS!!"

Collectorz rocks!
"I have only had the software for a couple of weeks, but am up to 1315 books, with two bookcases of 6 shelves each still to go. Not counting a handful in storage. Most are hardcover non-fiction - history, science, philosophy, photography.

While scanning I discovered a bunch of books I haven't read (very excited about that - new books and no cash output!) and maybe a dozen of duplicates. I love that this is in my iphone so I can buy new books without worrying about duplicate buying (nast trick of publishers to change the covers and suck me into a purchase ~LL). My friends who often get my dups are a bit unhappy that I have found a way to avoid that problem, but I am excited about the sense of order.

Now I have to sort/organize all my books so I can actually find something. I have a bunch of vacation days to take so I may dedicate a couple of days to that project.

Thank you Collectorz for such a great product! I also have the Movie Collector (thanks to the special prices you offered recently!) and also found dups! But I feel better about buying a movie without fear of wasting money on a duplicate purchase. I am spreading the news about your products to everyone who will listen.

Collectorz rocks!"

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."

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)

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!"

Can Do So Much
"I really love this program for my class library. I teach 4th grade (9 & 10 year olds). The price is great (especially the deals) and affordable on a teacher's salary.
It is easy to use and can do so much. It's easy to customize.

...I've told all our teachers about it! I also got the Movie Collector for my mom for Christmas (again thanks for having the special deals).

Thank you for all the hard work you do to keep the quality up."

So Amazing
"I do not have any question or problem because your software is so amazing and easy to install and use.
I've been delighted with it and how easy it is to export my collect to my iPhone. I've added owners and locations so I can always tell where the books are or where they need to be returned.
I could not be happier with my purchase! Thanks for developing such a terrific product."

900 Books Logged So Far

No More Buying Duplicates
"If you haven't heard of this software it's great. I have my entire library of 1,000 plus books and all our DVDs cataloged. It uploads to my iPhone, so no more buying duplicate books or DVDs.

Not to mention, that I now have a record of everything in case of a house fire. The best part is you just scan the bar code and it pulls in all the information from the internet."

A Should Have
"Everyone who collects books should have Book Collector and the iPhone app. I get a lot of positive comments from other customers in used book stores when I pull out my phone and start checking the list of books.
Before getting my iphone I would print out the list and take it with me when shopping for books.
Cumbersome is the word that comes to mind.
I visit 3 used bookstores every month. I buy about 12 books a month so it is nice to have the phone app with me.
Thanks for the quick response to my question...I appreciate that as well. I got your response in far less than 24 hours and on weekend!!
Nice."

Collecting books since 1960
"I love your product.
I have been collecting books since 1960. I hate to get rid of any of them. I have over 2,000 fiction books, several hundred cookbooks, and about that in non-fiction.
I started with your program shortly after it came out because I was looking for a replacement for a program I had that wasn't very efficient. I haven't thought of looking for a different one since.

Your developers are always thinking of things that would never occur to me but are great additions. And your support is amazing.
I can't thank you enough."

Book Collector reviews in 2009:


Your are unique
"Thank you so much for wonderful products and the fun it is using them. I am loving the Opticon scanner. And now have an excuse to purchase more books.
I am nearly 70, have been in the tech field forever (before women were accepted) and can honestly tell you that there are not companies out there like yours.
You are unique and I promise to get the word out.

I have referred many people already. I am sending your site to some of the journalists in the US. They need to know about you. I did it years ago. Now it is all even better."

"I just bought Book Collector is it is PERFECT! I'd been searching for a couple of weeks for a good program that does everything this does.
It took 5 minutes to input what took me an hour in Excel! After 4 hours, I had almost 400 books input!
Thank you so much!"

Nothing but fun
"I have to tell you that I am absolutely THRILLED with my Book Collector!!
I have had nothing but fun scanning in my books!!

I went all around the house, picking up every book I found and scanning it. Then I went into the guest room where I have three floor to ceiling bookcases completely full of books. I've managed to get about seven shelves scanned so far and would have them all done if I had the time, but I'm just doing it when I have the free time.

I just love my Book Collector and have told everyone I know about it, including a reading group on Yahoo. From the comments I've received, you'll probably be getting more orders for it.

Thanks so much for coming up with a program that is truly user friendly and organizes books quickly and efficiently but is so fun to use!!"

500+ Books in one morning

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 near future.
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!!!"

Michelle Gonzales

Love your software!
"Just finished entering my 2,400 books, cleaning up the entries, adding series, etc. and it was well worth the time.
Now I can easiy find which books I'm missing and never end up buying a book twice because I had to guess. :-)
Pays for itself in that respect."

Clz Books is superb!
"Just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know how great the update to Book Collector is.

Literally, one of my "to-do" tasks today was to email you and beg for an iPhone 3G app of Book Collector. To my utter astonishment, when I opened up the program today to add a few new books, I found that there was an update. Not only that, but an iPhone app was also available!

Ahhhhhh ... get out of my head Collectorz.com!

The iPhone app is superb! I purchased it immediately, imported my database and browsed through it. 5-star app! I left a review for you at the app store as well.

Just another reason I am beyond happy with my purchases Book Collector software! Truly the best in the business!"

My info at my fingertips
"By the way, I am a serious collector of Hugh Lofting's original Doctor Dolittle books and Tolkien's works. I looked at several software apps before choosing Book Collector.
It was a very carefully selected app by a serious collector.
I would recommend this excellent application to anyone who collects books and needs the ability to retrieve pertinent information easily and quickly.
I prowl the internet every day for the books I want and need my info at my fingertips.

Once again, thank you."

Top of the line service
"I started using Book Collector in 2003. Even then, it was the best product available for my needs - to record the books I have read. It is a great tool to take with you to the book store or library. Last week I decided it was time to upgrade. I am thrilled with the improvements, especially with the "Add book automatically" feature. With simply an ISBN, all the book's information is loaded from the internet.

But even more impressive than great software at a good price, is the service delivered.
I am ecstatic."

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!"

VERY user-friendly
"Thanks for the GREAT products!
I have the trial on both the movie and book and LOVE them! I have tried BUNCHES of free database programs for my collections and although some were fairly good, NONE of them has the ease of use AND the LOADS of OPTIONS of changing fields and field names.
Some other programs ARE able to change fields, but NOT with as many choices as you have and some won't let you NOT use certain default fields.

Your programs are VERY user-friendly!

Again, thank you for such cool and easy to use programs."

None better
"What a great company you are and I do love your software - it is the best book collection software there is out there and believe me I searched through all of them until I found this one.

Anyone who collects books or has a large library (or small) should have this software - honestly there is none better."

Easy to use
"I read the email newsletter and was nice to hear about what you are doing.
We had over 1,600 books entered in 4 days of daughter's visit. She flew in from Dallas, TX to WI to help her dad get started on entering his books - we have a loooong way to go but I am able to enter and use the program after a little coaching from her.

Great product and easy to use once you know the 'lingo' and what to look for - we have books off the floor now and in bags waiting for space on the shelves - but nothing can come into the library until it is logged in - daughter's rule!

Thanks again."

Totally amazing
"I downloaded and purchased your book software of Collectorz. This software is totally amazing.
I am very proud of how it works and it is the best software I have ever downloaded on the internet.

I loaded over 1,000 books manually into the program in less than 8 hours and I was amazed. So amazed I am recommending the software to all my collector buddies."

My CueCat, which is very finicky, as I am sure you know, works much, much better with 6.1. Also my database loads so much quicker. It took me some time to get used to the new Add screen but I like it.

I have 528 books in my database. I guess that is small compared to a store but for a personal collection it is a lot. I use my program to refer to when I want to buy something, in order to make sure I haven't got it already.

I love the ability to change the fonts, too. Now it looks the way I want it to look."

I don't buy duplicates!
"I really love using the Book Collector program and have sent a number of customers your way, always encouraging them to buy the scanner too!

Your program is one of my most used pieces of software. And I particularily love having the ability to upload to my Ipod so I don't buy duplicates!"

So intuitive
"Book Collector is an amazing program.

It is so intuitive that my 7-year-old has taken on the task of scanning in our books for our new home library. She has successfully scanned in over a hundred books this weekend and could even manually search for older books with ISBNs successfully using your interface.

Granted, she is a very bright 7 year old, but your interface and database makes it possible for her to be our chief librarian.

It is absolutely amazing what you have done with this program!"

A breeze
"Book Collectorz is so fantastic!

I've used it to create a library for our school. It acts as our card catalogue and it is wonderful! Its super easy for teachers to use, making finding books by subject a breeze. Its also easy to manage "checked out" books through its Loan feature. Its been quick and easy to add new books automatically or manually, and makes taking inventory a breeze.

I love that I can tag books by their topics to create easy reference themed lists for display; Poetry, Valentines Day, Feelings, ABCs, . . . . I am by no means a computer whiz, knowing only the "basics" on my Mac, but this program was easy to learn, modify for our needs, and teach to others. Their manual and online support are thorough, quick, and strait forward enough for even me to follow.

The school administration has been so impressed with how organized and slick looking this program is. It really makes me look like I'm doing way more than I actually am : )

I love, Love, LOVE it!Now I can't wait to organize all of my books at home!

Well designed
"I have worked in the Information Technology field in various capacities for 20 years, so I know good software when I see it.

Your user interface is very intuitive and well designed.
My trial experience was a pleasure and I am looking forward to the arrival of my scanner so I can begin what previously looked like an impossible task!"

Book Collector reviews in 2008:


One of my best buys
"I would like to thank you for two things; first, a first class piece of software and second, for the way in which you handle the updates.

Buying your program for managing my book collection was one of my best buys."

John Slann 
December 18, 2008
Too good
"The overall experience is simply too good to be true.
Last night, though I was under the weather with a sinus infection, I scanned another section of books from my library, came upstairs to the PC and unloaded all the info from my scanner into the book list I'm building. It's so easy even a sick person can do it!

My plan is to print Dewey labels for each book and organize accordingly. Any bibliophile loves to putter away time with his books, but Book Collector gives you more tools to putter with.

Someone will say to me, "Say, do you have something on acid rain?" With 2,000+ books, I've finally lost control of having each book at my fingertips. I can no longer retrieve its location from memory... Book Collector makes finding the book a fun process. A few clicks and it gives me Title, Author, Subject(s), and Dewey number.
Since everything is shelved by Dewey number, how easy is that?!

I LOVE this product... it includes absolutely everything a bibliophile could want."

Vicki Ruzicka

A happy cataloguer
"Just a quick email to say how pleased I am with the Music & Book Collector programmes that I recently purchased ( will buy the Movie one soon).

I had been using a different music catalogue programme but was not happy with it and ended up not doing anything to it, user friendly it was not.

The main reason I am so pleased is that I has already purchased a cue cat scanner earlier this year for cataloguing my books on an American website, but now I can keep it all in-house.

Once again thanks from a happy cataloguer."

Angie Biscoe 
December 01, 2008
No more double purchases
"Please allow me to say how much I enjoy your Book Collector application!

It made the much needed difference in how I organize my library. not only that, but now I can periodically export my DB to a CSV file, which I carry with me around on my Windows Mobile PDA - hurray, no more double purchases."

Erez Shapira 
November 25, 2008
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 
October 30, 2008
So far advanced
"I have tried two other book collecting software solutions and Collectorz.com is so far advanced it doesn't warrant comparison. It has simply revolutionised book collecting with its tools and display capabilities.

As any modern book collector knows the dust wrapper is a key part of collecting and the ability to download, scan & edit then display dust wrappers is almost as evocative as handling the books.

I have printed the details of different genres of my collection for friends, they then have a reference document with a dust wrapper, synopsis, ISBN and publisher so that they can build their own collection."

Patrick Roberts 
October 17, 2008
Oh happy day!
"I have been searching for a broad and diversified book cataloguing program, at one time beginning to design my own, but think you have come up with everything I am needing to include.

An academic colleague referred me to you - oh happy day!"

H Adams

It is easy
"We love our software and have over 7000 books loaded into the system and it is networked into the classrooms. It is easy for the students from grades 1-12 to locate the books they need. Thanks."
Ann McEvoy

Both librarians
"I want to say how much I like Book Collector. My husband and I are both librarians (I worked as a cataloger for over 20 years) and we're thrilled to finally get a handle on our personal collections."
Linda Flavin

Extremely well designed
"Thank you for a good program, affordable and extremely well designed. Despite my moving-about problem, the program seems to cover any contingency anyone wanting such a program would need. Thank you !"

Extremely efficient
"I'm a pastor and have used Book Collector for years for my theological library. I also get a number of magazines and rather than keep the whole magazine I clip articles and then forget that I even have them.

I've now solved the mess of boxes of uncategorized clippings by printing a simple sequential numeric label and assigned it to the printed article or web clipping. Then into a three ring binders for shelf storage go the sequentially numbered articles and I use Book Collector to categorize and locate the searched-for article(s) for me. Not as slick as populating the database via a book ISBN look-up, but still extremely efficient. Thanks."

Charles Packard 
July 28, 2008
It has paid for itself
"I love my book collector software. It allows me to quickly check to see if I already own a book or need to purchase it. It has paid for itself.

I also like to be able to track a book if it has been loaned to a friend or if it is in use. It has saved a lot of time."

Helen Murrell 
July 28, 2008
Very happy
"I purchased Book Collector Pro and am very happy with the software. In fact I'm surprised that you don't charge more that you do for such a great product.

Having programmed in D-Base (as well as other programming languages) I can appreciate the effort that goes in to analyzing and perfecting a database such as this. I am now retired (71 yrs old) and glad not to be constantly thinking about that last tweak of the program I'm working on, and the deadline that's fast approaching."

Doug Hartshorn 
July 16, 2008
3,500 books
"Book Collector is a great product. I've put over 3500 books into it over the last 4 days. I have primarily used the scanner and ISBN codes.

I hope to use Book Collector to understand my library better, control further book buys, and record the collection for insurance.

Just scan and load!
"I manage an extensive home library and now a small used bookstore in a consignment shop in my small hometown. Many of the books in my store are exchanged and borrowed, sold and repurchased.

I really love my Collectorz program, especially when I get in new books, just scan and load!"

Eve Brackenbury 
July 01, 2008
Worth the price
"I just want to say that your software with the upscale scanner has worked and performed as advertised. So far I have catalogued over 550 books effortlessly. Your system is worth the price several time over. Great job!"
Pierre Handl 
June 14, 2008
You're the best!
"I recently found out that a friend of mine also uses Book Collector. He told me that yours is the best product he found to do this. I told him that this is true, but that your service is also what sets you heads-and-tails above any other company with whom I've dealt. You're the best! Joseph"

Love the wireless barcode reader
"I am librarian for The Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild (1300 books with 250 that need to be added) and for The San Antonio Polymer Clay Guild (78 books) and my own library (350 and still adding) so I am becoming very familiar with it.

I just love the wireless barcode reader!!!! I also really like your quick response to questions! Your customer service is just great!"

Mary-Ruth Flores

And it's fun to use

Book Collector reviews in 2007:


This is fabulous software!
"I downloaded the trial, then purchased after 15 minutes of testing. This is fabulous software! It solved a big problem: I have and elderly mom. We have been buying books for her to read and she now has hundreds she has gone through. We cannot remember what we have purchased or what she likes, so she used to put a post it note inside the cover for reference.

This software solves all the problems. there is a reference column already set of any conceivable attribute of a book, and any note I might want to make. It is simple and it works beautifully. You've given me a very merry Christmas. Thank you!"

Ron Chiodo 
December 28, 2007
Very Impressed!
"I have trialled your book collector pkg for a day & purchased it a moment ago. After developing several of my own databases over a number of years, I got tired of s/w upgrade needs & my own changing needs in content.

I have been looking for a robust, flexible package that does as much of the work for me as possible. As well, the look & feel needed to be what I wanted to view. I sometimes loan books and like to record special notes about the book or the author that are helpful to the reader. Your product, Book Collector is the only one that does it all! Very Impressed!"

Gordon Whiteside

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 
August 24, 2007
5,000 books
"I am currently using Book Collector 4.8 and so far it is winning hands down over the other inventory software that I have been evaluating. I currently have approximately 5,000 books in my personal library."
Karla Marciszewski 
May 18, 2007
Versatility and ease of use
"We LOVE book Collector. When we first purchased book collector (for our old computer) we did a lot of research, looking at a wide range of products out there today. We tested out a handful of them, and Book Collector was the one that best fit our needs.

We have a relatively small personal library of about 1,200 books. Book Collector was an affordable way to do the most with our books. We love it's versatility and ease of use. In the time that we've had Book Collector, I don't think we've had any complaints. It has been a great product.

I've always felt like I was getting away with something when it comes to Book Collector. We've never had problems with it, it's never crashed, we've never lost data, and it doesn't freeze up."

Christopher and Sarah Urban 
May 07, 2007
The most user friendly

Kevin King

Wonderfully USEFUL
"I'm emailing you to tell you how wonderfully USEFUL I think Book Collector is. I've already begun entering my library as well as printing neat little Dewey number labels for each book. :) The automatic web lookup function is exactly what I was looking for.

You can be assured that within the next three weeks I'll be purchasing the program. Now--if your CD library program is half as useful as Book Collector, I'll probably have to have that one, too...dang, another $30 shot...:)"

Kenneth L. Ogle

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 
March 03, 2007
Excellent
"After a mainboard crash I decided to buy a new computer with Vista. My "old" book-program didn't work with it, so I had to decide for a new one. I tried a few, but none was so excellent like Book collector! I can do so much with it. Thanks a lot."

Awesome stuff
"I bought the Windows version of your Book Collector software about a month ago... awesome stuff! I've tried other collection management programs, but none had the features or clean interface of your Book Collector software.

It took almost no time to fill in over 400 books with covers, plots, and more. Exactly what I was looking for."

Book Collector reviews in 2006:


I love the software
"I love the software---I have over 1,000 books in my home library and would never keep them straight without Book Collector---high recommend it!
Now I can enjoy the Music Collector and will put it to good use as my CD collection is also growing and getting more difficult to organize. Thanks again for your prompt attention and for the software!"

Perfect for my needs
"I've owned Book Collector for about 6 months, and have finally entered my whole collection into the database (2,300+ books). I'm very happy with the software (it's nearly perfect for my needs), and I'm also very happy with the regular updates/upgrades and new features."
Kurt Heiss 
November 24, 2006
The best
"Of all the book (library) bases I have seen recently yours is the best - I have been in this game since the 1960's and in 1973/5 set up the first library on a unix system which never had anything but an online catalogue - covered everything from ordering to loans - at 83 I cannot be bothered to write code for Windows or Microsoft ..."
Peter Popper

Well worth every penny
"I recently purchased "Book Collector" and I am really thankful and happy to have such a program. And it is so reasonably priced - well worth every penny.

I have not found anything bad about it but rather everything good. It is a joy (plus peace of mind) to add my books to the data base as I have over 5,000 books in my study library. Its great to have a detailed record instantly on hand.

I am learning new tricks and benefits every day I use it. With only about 400 books listed so far (this has taken some time) I am thinking maybe I need to invest in a scanner:-)."

Enjoying my books
"I'm obsessed with books and admit it freely...LOL. There isn't anywhere I go that I don't have a book in hand. I keep all my books but the ones I don't like, which is few and far between.

I looked on the web and found several different programs, including this one. After researching them all I choose this one. I no longer have to worry about doing anything but enjoying my books. I love the ease of use and the fact that its made for everyone from the novice to the professional.

Thanks for the great program...I look forward to each new bell or whistle as I get to know the program. I'm seriously considering the Music Collector next! BG! Very Happy"

Loving Book Collector
"I am loving Book Collector and have so far put about 300 books into it in spare moments. I find it really easy to use, even for books too old to have an ISBN. I have ordered a barcode scanner, which should make things even quicker."

I LOVE this program
"I want you to know I LOVE this program. I am currently a graduate student, studying to be an elementary teacher after 21 years in Law Enforcement.

I recently took a child's literature class where the professor urged us to begin collecting books, at least 1,000 of them for our own classroom library. I was concerned about tracking them and keeping records on them.

I started inputing the data on the books in the collectorz and found that I could put notes in any topics such as self-esteem, family, animals, etc. So when I need to find a book for a certain child's interest or need, I can do this with a simple search. I will also be able to successfully track my books as children "check them in and out."

I have told my professor, the author of our text book, Elementary Children's Literature about this program."

Cherie, Tampa (USA)
January 16, 2006
Thank you so much
"I have been using Book Collector for years and I purchased another copy for the school's library. Since I was thrilled with the product, I purchased the Christmas set for my brother. I wanted to make sure his scanner worked and it did-quite well-so I ended up purchasing another Christmas set for myself!

Thank you so much for such easy to use, reliable, and affordable products! Great Customer Service also!"

Patricia S. Brooks 
January 05, 2006
Extraordinary product
"I have purchased both book collector and music collector - my book collection is almost 2,000 and i have recently purchased the bar code reader which works fabulously with the software!

You have an extraordinary product and i am happy i bought it. I have been recommending it to all my friends."

Dr. Didacus Jules 
January 04, 2006
Wonderfully useful
"As I "Flic"ed in a dozen or so Christmas gift books yesterday, I was reminded of how wonderfully useful Book Collector has been in cataloguing, locating and otherwise keeping track of the 1,123 books (it's only because of this program that I know the precise number) on my shelf --and not incidentally of the library books I have used in research."

Book Collector reviews in 2005:


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 
November 17, 2005
Very happy
"The book collector is a exeptional program with professional use, but very simple for everyone who want to arrangement his library ,with a lot of possibilites in all categories....it is precisely that program i looking for and I'm very happy !!!!!!!"

It is so easy to use
"This is such a great program! Thanks so much for all your hard work. I have a personal collection of thousands of books and now I finally have an easy-to-use program to list them all. Several people regularly borrow books from me, so I also appreciate the loan feature.

It is so easy to use that I was able to figure it out without even reading the instruction manual.
Thanks again!"

Jeannine Gerace 
June 21, 2005
By far the best
"Love the software. I have reviewed, literally, dozens of pieces of book collecting software because I have 1,000's of titles and I only want to do this ONCE! Your stuff is by far the best. Thanks!"
Scott Stratton

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 
June 02, 2005
I simply *HAD* to buy it
"I was simply Googling for a book database and found your link. The main feature that hooked my into trying your product was the book cover scans. Very nice!

After I used the wizard to enter some of my collection, I was SOOO impressed at the ease of use that I simply *HAD* to buy it.

I'm a network engineer and I've never been as impressed with a program as I have with your product. I mean, I paid for it after about 1 hours use. Thanks so much!!"

Book Collector reviews in 2004:


Great job!
"I must take a moment to say that I love this program and am using it to catalogue audio books that I have read this this year. It works so well when assisting me with my library requests and allows me to personalize a bit to my needs. Great job!

Thank you for an excellent product that has provides me with the tools to organize my reading & book list. I am using Standard edition Book Collector and used it for for free until I reached the 100 book limit. I then found I did not want to live without it.

I also appreciate the prompt response to my questions from customer support. Many Thanks!"

Book Collector reviews in 2003:


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!"

The best
"I have been using Book Collector for about a week and have found it to be the best that I have ever come across. I wish I had found this many years ago as it would have saved a lot of wasted time. In 20 minutes over the weekend I was able to add about 800 books into the database.

Keep up the good work!!!!"

So user friendly
"My son bought this program for me using his credit card and I am thrilled to death with it. 25 years of adding to my home library has resulted in my having to move twice to larger houses (this is true).

It will take me many weeks to enter all volumes, but I am having great fun doing it. I had seen other programs in book stores in San Francisco, but never one that was so user friendly and comprehensive. I love it!"

Book Collector reviews in 2002:


The answer to my dreams
"What great products! The answer to my dreams.

I found your products on the 5-Star Freeware site and after downloading the Movie Collector and trying it for 3 minutes I knew I was on to a winner. I have hundreds of DVDs and Videos as well as hundreds of CDs/Cassettes and perhaps THOUSANDS of books.
Thank you Collectors...I love you!"

Collecting books for decades
"This program is da bomb. I've been collecting books for decades. I have thousands of the things.

The big problem has not been the database - I can manage that. The big problem is typing in detail information about thousands of books. Too boring!! Too mind-numbing!! Thanks very much for this program.

It's clever and in a funny kind of way validates some of the promise of the Internet."

By far the best
"Great program! I learned about it by doing a Google search. I investigated many programs and down loaded four. Yours was by far the best. Something I've been dreading doing is now fairly simple."

Like your work
"I am using your program for insurance purposes as well as to tell what books I have so that I do not duplicate buy new books. I really do like your work! It is an easy to use interface and is well thought out."

It's absolutely marvellous
"I originally found Book Collector on Google when I was trying to find a product that would relieve me of some of the data entry involved in cataloguing by doing a lookup on ISBN - at the time, I wasn't even sure such a thing even existed, but since all the information IS online, and there's a ton of products that do the same sort of thing for CDs via CDDB, I thought there SHOULD be.

Book Collector showed up as one of the tiny handful of products that COULD do such a thing, but none of them were free (the other hope I'd had ;-) ). I looked over the website and bookmarked it for later consideration. In the meantime, a friend was also trying to find software for me, and Book Collector came up for him on an online search; he emailed saying that even though it wasn't free, it looked so impressive that he thought I should at least give it a try.

So I downloaded it and tried it, and of course, had my credit card handy long before I'd hit the evaluation version's limit. I can't praise you enough for what a beautiful job you've done on this software - it's absolutely marvellous, and I already have at least one friend (potentially more) talked into purchasing it for themselves.

BEAUTIFUL product - thank you very much for all the work you put into it!"

I'm happy as happy can be
"I've been waiting to find your software for 20 years. Could never master MS Access to create my own book collection recording database. Now I've found your Book Collector, I'm happy as happy can be."

The best $25 I ever spent
"Just a quick e-mail to say how wonderful Book Collector is. I have found it most useful with my small collection of 548 Star Trek Books as well as my extensive Tom Clancy Collection.

Thanks again for the best $25 i ever spent."

Excellent
"Not only are the Collectorz programs excellent, but your level of support is well in excess of what should be expected of a $20 program!

-- Philip used the $5 discount coupon for Book Collector he got when purchasing Music Collector (ed.)"
