Collectorz: Book Collector Database Software

Photobucket

I may be proud to call myself a bibliophile, but I am not proud of the many times I have purchased a book I already own simply because I have forgotten I own it. Yeah, I admit it.  I've done it several times and every time I do, I promise myself that one day soon I will sit down and catalog all the books I own so that it will not happen again.  Hasn't happened yet but Collectorz makes me hopeful that this particular dream may soon come true!

Collectorz is a collection database software available for music, movies, books, comics, games, MP3s, and photos.  As part of the TOS Crew, I received the Book Collector Pro version for review, which made me more excited than you can possibly imagine.  Finally, a way for me to catalog my books in a fun and visually appealing manner!  Check out the image below and you'll see that once you input your books, you can view their colorful covers and information in a way that makes them appear as yummy as they should.


You input the books by ISBN code and it will automatically find your cover and information.  This can be done by typing in the code or you can pick up a scanner and swipe the codes to your heart's content.  This is what I mean by fun!  Unfortunately, the Cue Cat I ordered from Amazon is not working and my life got crazy and I haven't exchanged it yet.  That means I had to begin by typing in the ISBN codes and while that is super easy as well, it's just not quite as much fun.  Once I have a new scanner in hand, watch out books 'cause I'm coming for you!

So why do I already love this program? As I said before, it's visually well done and attractive. I find it easy to use and was inputting books within minutes of downloading. I can edit the data fields and add genres and categories, making it easy to locate what I want quickly. If I'm looking for books on homeschooling, I can sort that way.  If I want everything I own in the science fiction category, I can find it. If I can't remember if I already own The Giver (Uh...yeah...that's one I've purchased more than once!  Good book though.), I can discover that in seconds without wading through every bookshelf in my house (and there are many).  And if I want to know which genre I prefer (because I own more of those books!), I can check out the cool graphs and see all kinds of neat statistics on my personal library.  I can also track which books I have loaned out and who I need to beat up if it's not returned!**

My oldest daughter is getting married next summer and I am consoling myself with the idea of turning her room into a library.  Collectorz and I are going to become great friends during this endeavor! And I am pretty confident that any homeschooler would find this to be a great asset in keeping track of their homeschool libraries.  Highly recommended!

The standard edition is available for $29.95, while the Pro will run you $49.95.  You can try the Pro free for 30 days, click HERE and scroll to the bottom of the page.



*Disclosure: The Pro version was provided at no cost for review purposes. A positive review was neither promised nor required- this software just rocks!*

**This is not a serious threat and no one should show up at my door concerned about violence to non-returners. Just a joke, deary!
