Book Collector reviews from customers

January 01, 2021
I use Book collector almost every day!
Dear Alwin and all at CLZ,
Thank you so much for all you have done to keep this amazing program going! 2020 has been so difficult and having access to organizing my books has been one of those pleasures that bring peace in chaos. I’m in the USA, so you can imagine…no don’t, it’s not worth it yet.
Seeing your Christmas card made me smile and cry at the same time. I hope the celebrations you have for your 20th year “make up party” are ROCKIN’!! I’m not sure how long I’ve been with you, but it’s been a long, wonderful time!
Thank you for all you do!
PS I love the Big Sur update! — Carri Keaton (USA) on Book Collector

Happy 20th anniversary
Many congratulations on your 20th anniversary, it is not many start up companies that survive 20 years. Pass on my appreciation to all your team who have supported me over the years. I am not quite your first user but I think I signed up for Book Collector before 2003/4. Your software has progressed and improved every year and I couldn’t collect books without the support of my database.
Stay safe and Happy New Year — Pat Roberts (United Kingdom) on Book Collector
