Diet Software Guru loves All My Books ™ Ebook Library Software
As a keen advocate for using software where possible it occurred to me that perhaps I could find some suitable software for my massive book and ebook library.
I have over 150 ebooks on diets and bodybuilding and have previously used multi file searching and the crude technique of just dumping all such books into a single folder, for "easy searching". Not!
Rather than the hassle of creating my own ebook library I thought I'd sniff around for existing programs and ended up finding more ebook library programs than I expected. Only one of them though jumped out as being slick, polished, professional and most importantly, flexible and easy to use.
I get a lot of questions regarding diets and nutrition, as well as exercise techniques, workouts etc. Biggly, my own diet software was created because I wasn't happy with anything else out there. I thought I would be in the same situation when it came to organizing my own ebook library but "All My Books" saved the day nicely. Now when I get a question such as "Who says you should taper your calories on a diet?" or similar I can easily search through my own notes and other data associated with each book. It's easy to create categories of my own choosing, such as diet, then sub categories such as low carb, high calorie bulking etc.
Originally the intention was to use it only for ebooks but I've since made a complete library of my bodybuilding books in print plus my wife has been busy doing the same with her work stuff from Uni.
I rarely write reviews or endorsements but All My Books gets two thumbs up.
Things I liked:
Can link to original files and websites
Was able to easily import my previous efforts with MS Excel
Controls are simple but comprehensive
Can create separate databases, so I don't have to wade through my wife's stuff
Stable and problem free
Can suck data from Amazon and other sources
Can edit sucked data from Amazon and other sources!
"Hi there! Would like to say thank you for the program! It does make dreams come true! It's just a god send for me - having all books in my library pretty organized at last! I can sort them within a couple of clicks by any criterion. Quick filters are really great! Great covers and the opportunity to add not only about the author, but their photos as well make the program just perfectly ideal for me!" Anthony Barrett - Rating: 4.7 -
