As a blind computer user with Apple’s screen reader, I am always so grateful to find such a high degree of accessibility in a program like this. It is a blessing to be able to manage my home library without the need for much sighted help.
It is a credit to your programmers that the program is accessible. They obviously took care to meet the guidelines for its support. I suppose that not many blind folks care about books. My blindness came on in my 30s so I had a house full of treasures I wanted to recall, organize and pass along to my son. Audio books have kept me sane but there is nothing like a book in hand and turning a page. I fear before too long too few will be able to know that pleasure.
I have enjoyed working with you. Your communication skills are outstanding. I hope that whoever pays you recognizes the value in that .
If you are ever in the USA and near North Carolina, Do let me know. I would like to thank you in person and buy you dinner for all this effort on my behalf.
One reason your software is such a gift to me is that about 11 years ago while logging information on about 1500 books on index cards and on my computer, a flood hit our area and our home was affected. I lost about 700 books to the flood and never went back to update my personal library. Since that loss, I’ve purchased many more books to add to those remaining – and inadvertently bought some of them more than once, hence my need for better organization of my books – and with your software I’m quickly updating my records.
Within a short period of time I used my scanner to log nearly 400 books and have asked my granddaughter to come and help me with the rest of the project in a few weeks after she graduates from high school and before she heads off to college. We look forward to working on this project together. What a treat it is to watch those books jump onto the screen with all pertinent information, just by using a scanner and making a few clicks on my keyboard to save what popped up.
I was pleasantly surprised when seeing more book and author details than I was aware of, too – including links for information on Wiki... The list is great and has such a great user-friendly sorter by title or author. When browsing around and clicking on the Images tab and seeing the books lined up on book shelves, I actually leaned back and laughed with surprising joy. Clicking on the Cards tab showed me the little cards complete with each book’s information, and I was amazed.
I’ll highly recommend your software to others and want to thank you so much for this delightful program.
It's the sort of thing I dreamed of having 20 years ago when I first started building my collection, and I have recommended it to several friends with large collections like my own.
The fact that you have people available to offer such excellent customer support makes me all the more impressed with your company
I would like to share The Yellow Library which is my home library that my husband and I designed (DIY). :)
I want to inspire booklovers everywhere to dedicate a special room for their books!
My book blog is named after it :). I love Book Collector so much that ive been recommending it to all my booklover friends and blogged about it
At first the little app for my iPhone seemed rudimentary (unless I was missing something?) but now it has all the details and the App for my new iPad 3 with retina display and the cover images just blows me away!
I LOVE my personal library of over 3,500 books and now if I am talking to someone about a book I have that they might like I can just whip out my iPhone or IPad and show it to them. What fun! Bookcollector Helps me actually find and use my books.
I am anxious to discover just how large my personal collection is (my guess is about 2,000 books), to have it organized, an to enjoy the full functionality of it all. I will be happy to share before and after photos of my current mess versus my organized structure that is one of my primary projects now, including a new custom build home library with floor to ceiling bookcases in my office.
Thanks to all you folks in Amsterdam, Steve from Oklahoma City
Perfect catalog for your personal library.
It is so intuitive that my 7-year-old has taken on the task of scanning in our books for our new home library. She has successfully scanned in over a hundred books this weekend and could even manually search for older books with ISBNs successfully using your interface.
Granted, she is a very bright 7 year old, but your interface and database makes it possible for her to be our chief librarian.
It is absolutely amazing what you have done with this program!
I really love my Collectorz program, especially when I get in new books, just scan and load!
We have a relatively small personal library of about 1,200 books. Book Collector was an affordable way to do the most with our books. We love it's versatility and ease of use. In the time that we've had Book Collector, I don't think we've had any complaints. It has been a great product.
I've always felt like I was getting away with something when it comes to Book Collector. We've never had problems with it, it's never crashed, we've never lost data, and it doesn't freeze up.
Now I can enjoy the Music Collector and will put it to good use as my CD collection is also growing and getting more difficult to organize. Thanks again for your prompt attention and for the software!
It will take me many weeks to enter all volumes, but I am having great fun doing it. I had seen other programs in book stores in San Francisco, but never one that was so user friendly and comprehensive. I love it!
