ALWAYS flawless
I do wish you could teach America software companies how to do software updates. Yours are ALWAYS flawless and so easy to perform. NO ONE has a better update system than you run and I am extremely thankful for it.
Just wanted to let you know I appreciate all that you do and feel you really have a fantastic system working. — James Stephen Lorson (USA) on Book Collector

Love this program
I really do love this program. I used Delicious Library for a number of years but when I moved to a new iMac I had difficulties porting my data base. I stumbled upon your program and have never looked back.
BTW, my wife and I, together with some friends, are going to be visiting Amsterdam next year. I am looking forward to seeing the Vermeer’s. — Joseph Shidle (USA) on Book Collector

Excellent program
Yours is an excellent program, which I use and have used extensively for both my academic and personal library for many years. I am currently researching the history of "The Poppy" and "The Tulip" in your regional history as part of a personal biography ( I passed many fields of both during a motorcycle-camping tour of the region in 1957 and remember both the flowers and the desolate appearance of Waterloo...beautiful flowers and memories). — Don Speer (USA) on Book Collector

Exceeded my expectations
I have been using Book Collector for a couple of weeks now and I must report that it has exceeded my expectations in form and function. It is a well thought out program that is comprehensive, intuitive and aesthetic. The customization options are awesome. Kudos to you for coming up with such a program. This is exactly what my book collection was screaming for. Thank you. — Christopher R Carey (USA) on Book Collector
