Keep up the great work
I am a very satisfied user of your book collecting software and app. I love your program so much I gifted it to a fellow book collector because its such a great stable program! — Robert Lewis (USA) on Book Collector

Fantastic product
Just a note to wish you well during these difficult times. I have just updated my subscription plan though to 2023. It made me stop and think that will probably be more than 20 years that I will have been using the software. It is difficult to cast your mind back to remember what the screens used to look like and the limited functionality. Well done to you all for developing a fantastic product and sticking to it through good times and bad.
I cannot imagine book collecting without Collectorz.com — Pat Roberts (United Kingdom) on Book Collector

Thank you!
Hey everyone at CLZ, just wanted to say thank you for making ‘Extras’ from the desktop edition a part of the web edition. This is where I was keeping info like if it was signed. I would get a list of books from a bookseller and some of them would be sighned. I knew I already had some of the books but I couldn’t remember if they were signed. I would have to wait until I was home to see if my book was signed or not. Now I can see this info from anywhere! Thank you! — Sherri Reid (USA) on Book Collector

My book collection cataloged
With the help of my 5 cats, taking turns in my lap supervising, I've been able to finally get ALL of my book collection cataloged. Thanks so much for all you folks have done for this. — Tina Deaton (USA) on Book Collector

Superb software
By being stuck indoors I’ve been able to re-catalogue one of my libraries. Unfortunately we don’t have space for shelves so have to use boxes. Just hope I don’t need something from the bottom box. Thank you for the superb software which made the job a whole lot easier. — ?Peter Clarance Joyce (United Kingdom) on Book Collector

Thank you
I am a avid reader. I have lots of applications on my computer, but I have to comment you have a very well written program. You are consistently updating and improving. — Gene (USA) on Book Collector

Great bit of software
I can't believe how fast the new cloud sync is. That's a great step forward. Shortly before I did a sync with 364 changes and it took ages. Now they happen in a blink. Great work to the team.
This is a great bit of software that just keeps on getting better. — Mal Ferguson (Australia) on Book Collector

Piece of gold
Your software is a piece of gold, and I’m anxious to get back to using it. — Patricia Carr (USA) on Book Collector

My book database
When I bought the app it was after a good many years where I had made my own database, just to be sure that I didn’t borrow books from our local Danish libraby, that I’ve already read. I gave it up when I found Collectorz. I combined from the start the PC application and the Android do.
Soon I realized that it was not all of my read books, that I did put up on the DB. But rather books that I wanted to talk with other people, friends and acquaintances, about.
Somehow there’s also a satisfaction with just looking and seeing what you have spent your time with. I mean a book, read, represents hours and hours of time.
I am very satisfied with the Coillectorz.com – and I follow the development of the app carefully. For example the latest I have discovered: the possibility to make categories of your books – that could be periodically read, year by year, or otherwise. — Finn Alring (Denmark) on Book Collector
