If you have so many books that you can hardly find one when you need it, All My Books, a personal book cataloger, can be right for you. This book collection manager can store information not only about traditional paper books but e-books and audio books as well. In addition, it supports a long list of different e-book and audio book formats. The application has a beautiful and intuitive interface, which makes it very easy to find and view information about a book, including cover, plot, synopsis and reviews.
Adding books to your database is very simple. In fact, not only can books be added one by one, but also in batches. In this respect, the application can scan a given folder to automatically add those files meeting given criteria, such as book type. More than just that, All My Books can connect to at least twelve Internet book databases and download the data necessary to fill in the fields automatically.
Fortunately, your book databases can be backed up, imported and restored with ease. Furthermore, you can protect your database using a password. It is good to know that the wide range of features available, which includes adding books to a wish list, transferring selected books to a portable device and managing loans, can be expanded by using plugins.
In my opinion, All My Books is the most complete book collection manager available. It has been developed through the years to satisfy the most demanding users.
