For every book I own
They are absolutely correct about insurance. Lost my father's ww2 and civil war books in a fire and couldn't get them replaced. Today I have this software for every book I own!! — Teresa Alice (USA) on Book Collector

Makes the lending of books a breeze
As Library Coordinator for our chapter of a national environmental organization I use Book Collector to stay organized. The software makes the lending of books a breeze. We have over 230 books which some of your respondents would scoff at but, since I haul the books to monthly meetings, it is plenty big enough.
I value Book Collector highly and rely on it to keep track of all details of running a much used chapter library. Thank you and keep up the good work! — Virginia Watson (USA) on Book Collector

This saves sanity
We have almost 8000 volumes in two houses so this saves sanity and for the most part duplicate purchases. I used to have a card catalog system, but with Book Collector I have books in certain rooms, in certain bookcases - really helps when you are looking for reference for a talk! — Ronda Barnhurst (USA) on Book Collector

A great product
We are using this at our car club Library with 5000+ books and 500+ lenders. A great product, at a very reasonable price, easy to use, easy to maintain and runs on machines with minimal resources.
I recommend this product to anyone wanting a maintain a small library....and I am an IT manager at a library for a living. — Neville Butler (Australia) on Book Collector
