All My Books - Perfect software

"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."
