E-book Organizer Software - just scan your folders for e-book files
Or... use them both, as perfect companions!
Both CLZ Books and Book Connect can be used on their own, as a stand-alone solution. But these tools really come to life when used together, as they are great companions.
While away from your computer use CLZ Books on your phone, then use Book Connect at home, to work on your database on a big screen, with a real keyboard.
Of course, you can sync your database between them through our CLZ Cloud solution.
Also still available: Book Collector for Windows
Book Collector is our legacy desktop software. Old-skool software that you install on your own computer, with your data stored locally.
Using Book Collector is only recommended for advanced Windows users, who know how to install/update software, manage folder and file permissions, configure firewall/security software, make their own backups, etc...

Reviews from customers
I also am very happy with the prompt responses to any questions I may have. I have you as a friend on Facebook and have not hesitated in asking questions. Your responses have been precise and fast. I like that. It shows you listen to the consumer and do your best to give us what need. Thank you for that.
I also love the app that works wonders when I'm in the bookstore. I can check my collection and add my purchase or just add to the wish list with the bar-code. That is just another part of your Collectorz software that I am happy to have in my devices.
The price for your software is a bonus, it's reasonable and affordable, which keeps me coming back to update. So, again I thank you and although I've done it many times now, I will keep recommending your software to all those I know need it for their own collections.
I am now 62 years old. Born in the old German Democratic Republic as the first son of a teacher of Latin language. My father loved books, and so it was just normal, that I also loved them. In this time and in this country it was usually to read. Everybody read books. Books were cheap, books were all over, and there are libraries. It was easy to read. The GDR was a country of readers. However, it was not so easy to get the right books. That was the other side of the medal. If you like special books, you have to find a way to get it.
In this time, the people in the GDR know the term "Bück-Dich-Ware" ("Stoop-For-Goods”). That means the bookseller had to stoop. Because he had only a few books of a special print, so he had hidden these books under the counter. That is why it was very important to have a good relationship with the seller in the bookshop or at the kiosk. In addition, it was necessary to go every week and visit the shop. May be he has news or (much better) new books. It was not possible to order or to pre-order. You had to be at the right time on the right location and (!) You had to know the right people. In this time I had three special areas, I liked. At first books about railways. These books were extremely rare, very difficult to get. Second was Science fiction or "fantastic" literature, how they named it in the GDR. These books you could get easier. In addition, the third was a difficult thing. A publishing company (that never exists anymore) created a book series named "Kompass". These books were small, very cheap and printed as paperbacks. The subjects were very different. You could find sci-fi, youth literature, world famous books, thrillers and much more. Ten to twelve times a year a new book appear. No one knows on which day. Moreover, what would we get? It was so exciting. These book series was part of my childhood, part of my youth.
The years passed. I got older, I studied, I found my beautiful wife (also loving books). We got two sons. Then came the year 1989. Everything was changing. Not only the big things. No dictatorship of a lonely party anymore. Many possibilities to go on vacation, wherever you want (and could pay). Huge offers of food, dresses, and cars. And now there are books without an end!!!!
Again time passed. I found a good job with a good income. My beloved wife the same, new job, good income. Therefore, we decided to buy a house.
It was not easy in these days, because often the real ownership structure was not clear. However, we did it. It needed a lot of money, mostly credit, and a lot of own manpower and the help of our families. My father in law often told that this house is much too big for us. He did not know our secret idea: We want to have our own library. Not only a shelf or two. No. An own library. An entire room only with books.
And that's what happened. We created our most beloved room, our library. Four walls with shelfs from floor to ceiling. It was one of my most beautiful moments of my life to put in the first books.
Now the shelf are full of books. We have more than 6.000 books all over the house. There is not a room without books. Our children are already grown up, but our books will life with us together until the end. And so I got a new problem. How to find a book? Which shelf? There are too much to remember. Searching Amazon, finding a new book creates the question: Do I own it? Standing in a bookshop, looking at a beautiful book, the same question. Have it or not?
That was the reason why I begun to search a program for managing my books. Since this time, I am using Book Collector. It took a long time to fill the app with my entire book and to scan all covers. But now I not only love my books, I know which books I love. Thank You, Book Collector.
That is my story of books. But please do not misunderstand: I am part of the modern world. We have e-books; we are also using reading flat rates. However, a printed book is a special thing. You can feel it and smell it. Very special. Like magic.
One day I am going to die. I hope I can take a book with me.
As Seniors, we had a hard time remembering which books we have read and many times we would download a book and get half way through it and then realize we had already read that book.
Then we FOUND BOOK COLLECTOR and it sure saved the day, week and year... We have it on our tablets and desktop computers so everything always stays up to date.
Thank you very much.
Je kunt boeken ook een 'rating' meegeven, een cijfer van 0 tot 10, gebaseerd op hoe leuk je het boek vond. Je kunt invullen waar en wanneer je het gekocht hebt en voor hoeveel. Er zijn een heleboel dingen die je kunt invullen. Je kunt je boeken ook sorteren op deze dingen, zoals bijvoorbeeld per jaartal of alle boeken laten zien die je in een bepaalde winkel gekocht hebt (je kunt de getallen hiervan zien bij de statistieken). Je kan je boeken synchroniseren met het internet, en zo dus ook op een andere computer je boeken zien (mits het programma geïnstalleerd is).
Ik gebruik ook CLZ Barry voor het scannen van barcodes van boeken (die
het programma daarna importeert) en ook CLZ books, zodat ik mijn boeken
op mijn telefoon kan zien, wanneer ik bijvoorbeeld in een boekenwinkel
ben en ik wil kijken of ik een bepaald boek al heb of niet. Erg leuk
vind ik de statistieken die Book Collector biedt, bijvoorbeeld over welk
land de auteurs van mijn boeken vandaan komen (dit moet dan wel ingevuld
zijn, uiteraard), hoeveel van welk genre ik heb, welk jaartal,
Het programma is geweldig en ik raad het iedereen aan die van boeken houd en zijn/haar collectie wil bijhouden! Overigens gebruik ik ook andere programma's van Collectorz en ook deze zou ik aanraden. Ik gebruik Book Collector echter het meest (want ik houd het meest van lezen).
Ik heb enkele duizenden cd's, boeken en films ingevoerd en bewerkt. Je kunt zoeken op artiest, auteur, genre, jaartal, wel of niet gelezen/gezien etc. Vooral handig als je naast boeken ook ebooks hebt. Ik liep laatst met mijn ipad in de aanslag over een boekenbeurs in Maastricht. Ik kon in mijn Collectorz.books meteen opzoeken welke ik nog wilde aanschaffen, welke ik alleen als ebook had enz. Ik kon zelfs mijn ingevoerde recensies uit de VN thrillergids en Crimezone er op naslaan!
Nogmaals veel lof.
It's easy to add new books to your collection simply by scanning the barcode on the book or entering it's ISBN number. There is a ton of data that the app gets for the books you add, so you don't have to put the info in.
So, being the shiny knight in armor, I introduced her to Book Collector.
I have to say, for the relatively low cost of Book Collector Pro, I have scored a 'lot' of points with my wife. As you probably already figured out, I'm scoring 'more' points every time she uses Book Collector Pro.;)
I buy 20 to 30 books a month. My local library sales them for $.25 cents each. I was always calling home to see if I had it. And I buy kindle books online.
This keeps them all together.
