Why Make a Book Database
Book Database Software
You're a book lover, so you know there's nothing quite like the feel of a good book in your hands. Maybe you've even got a list of all the books you own, or a list of all the books you've read. Book lovers tend to like lists, paper, pens and things like a book database for keeping track of all those precious tomes on your shelves. But if you don't have a book database already (and even if you do) you're going to love book database software.
Reasons for Making a Book Database
First of all, there are few things more satisfying for book lovers than to see a list of books. While it might not be quite as tactile as looking at your bookshelves or walking between the stacks at your local library, a list of your books is an enjoyable thing to browse through, too. So a book database, especially when made with top notch book database program is, simply put, fun!
But there are practical reasons for making a book database, too.
Loss: Hopefully you'll never need a book database for this reason, but if you should ever have to file an insurance claim on your home contents, having a book database that lists the titles makes it easy to figure the approximate value of your book collection. Computer was destroyed, too? Book database software lets you export your database to mobile devices and HTML so you can upload the list to a web page that can be accessed from anywhere.
Tracking: One of the greatest features of a good book is that you can discuss it with other people who've read it and enjoy going over the story and hearing other opinions. If you loan your book to someone else to share a great story, you can keep track of when you loaned it and to whom with book data base software.
Memory: Book lovers read their own books and other people's books through borrowing from friends and the library. Some read so many books they can't possibly remember if they own it or they read another copy. With book database program, you'll be able to see if it's in your collection at a glance.
Custom fields: Good book database software fills in all the standard fields for you like author, ISBN, publisher, genre, number of pages and more, but you can also add your own fields and labels and sort your books according to them. You can even add extensive author information, including a photo, for each author or just your very favorites.
Why Use Book Database Software?
You probably love pens and paper, just as you love the feel of a book. But book data base software makes cataloging your books so quick and easy (just type in part of the title or author's name, and it does the hard work, requiring only another click or two from you) there's simply no comparison between making a book database with great software and making a list any other way.
Our customer say
"All My Books is perfect for someone who has, or has read numerous books. My database of books read (library, audio books, books read during lifetime) or currently owned books, including e-books (on Kindle, I-Books, audio books), hardcover and paperback books are easily accessed. I have entered almost 5,300 books and short stories. I just checked - I have 2,700 unread (many e-books are shorter than 20 pages). It is really easy to get the books into the database. Once in, the ability to sort by author, title, location, and other sorts of criteria is fantastic."
