Book Collector reviews from customers

Excellent program
I realized today that I have been using your Book Collector software for nearly ten years now, since I switched from a physical book collection to ebooks. Simply put, I seriously doubt there is a better program available for managing my ever growing collection. The ease at which books can be added and managed, the efficient manner in which databases can be searched and reviewed, and the overall smoothness of the program in general is what makes it superior. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to another ten years of your excellent program! — Michael Wallen (USA) on Book Collector

You are the best
I could not manage my collection without. I love the option to scan a book in the store and find out if I already own it. Happened a couple of times before I converted my collection to your program. — Frank Bernhardt (USA) on Book Collector

Just a short note of thanks
Just a short note to tell you I would be totally lost without your program (Book Collector) with 2000 books on the shelves it would be impossible to know where to find a specific book, and I would finish up with a lot of doubles on my shelves.
Thank you very much. — Mario Sbrana (Australia) on Book Collector

Wonderful software
This software has been wonderful for me - I have over 6000 books and this has made cataloging them much easier. — Randall Sykes (USA) on Book Collector

A joy to use
I have really enjoyed the use of your products over the years. The Books and Comics in particular made cataloging my collections a whole lot easier to finish and sort. It was really nice that I was able to add most items without having to enter each piece of data separately, like some of the other software out there.
What seemed like an endless task of adding 3500+ paperbacks and hardcover, became a joy to do. The use of a barcode reader just made it that much faster. I still had to manually input a fairly large number of books as they were printed before the barcode system came into being, but even that, for the most part, was reasonably easy to do by using the ISBN. A bit tougher to enter the ones without any ISBN listed, but there the search by title and author made things doable. — Per Olsen (USA) on Book Collector

Intuitive and user-friendly
I also wanted to take a moment to thank you for creating the Book Collector software. I have an extremely large book collection that I need to downsize, and I was hoping to find a tool that would allow me to easily catalog my books so I could determine which ones to sell, which ones to bring to the used bookstore, and which ones to keep. I also wanted to capture other details about my books. I discovered your website by pure chance through a Google search, and I am so happy I did since your software does everything I wanted to do (and more)! I having been working with data for 35 years and find that most tools lack the functionality that users would like, but that is not the case with Book Collector. It is very intuitive and user-friendly, and I have been able to figure out how to do something without looking at the manual. The app is a life-saver too since I found it challenging to use my web cam to scan the ISBNs. With the app synchronization, this work is very easy.
Thanks again for the wonderful resources you have created. — Jim V. (USA) on Book Collector

Everything worked exactly the way the directions said it should
My old computer is dying, and I've been having a terrible time transferring various applications to the new one. But YOU have clear instructions for moving Book Collector on your website, and everything worked exactly the way the directions said it should.
Thank you! — Margaret (USA) on Book Collector

Wonderful program
Thank you for a wonderful program by the way; it was good when I bought it a few years ago and just keeps getting better and better ... I just need to use it more often. — John Moran (United Kingdom) on Book Collector

The number 1 application in its category
I continue to be very pleased with your Book Collector system - it is unquestionably in my opinion the number 1 application in its category, and the support I have received on the few occasions I've required it has been first class; I never hesitate to recommend it to friends (though of course I can never guarantee they will follow my advice!) — Colin Pearce (United Kingdom) on Book Collector
