    I use a program called Book Collectorz purchased from collectorz.com

    As seen in the picture below, I like it because it allows me to add pictures to my database. The program backbone....Microsoft Access. It also allows me to use over 70 canned fields or add my own custom named fields.



    The price for the program???? I think was around $25. I used to use Excel, but I really liked the format of this software.

    Again, excellent list Jerome. I love your field "shelf location". Just had to laugh at that. Shelf 3 (located not in room 1, 2 or 3, but in room 4). I think Bob may need this feature added to his database...haha

    I am considering buying it (the pro version, as it seems to allows more customization)

    This message is from october. I still plan to do it. I'll be testing the trial version first, then probably buy the pro version.

    There are MANY, MANY, MANY online services. ie : goodreads, booknote, babelio (french)...
    And collectorz.com have their own online service. But i spent 5mins there and had a few online errors and dont seem to be giving as much customisation as the software.
    There i dont think i'll be using their online version, but i am likely to continue with the software (which i tried so far, i am quite happy with it... although their UX could be improved).
    Still plenty books to enter into it!



    shelfproud.com : they only have 47 "likes" on their facebook page, while collectors have over 30,000. To me that shows that shelfproud online presence is not that great, and who knows if they are not going to close it one day?

    What do i see on the homepage of their website?

    After six years I'm wondering if anyone has an update as to what you are using to track your books.

    Stroppygoblin was working on an iPhone app, but I believe it's on the back burner.

    Same reason here. Come to think of it. It was the her idea... Hmmm.

    Just read through this thread. I developed an access file to keep track of mine, but wanted to compare some of these others as well. I see one that was mentioned back around 2011 or 2012, shelfproud.com is no longer active. Has it moved?
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606..

    Also, replace 1st/1st that got stolen:

    I picked up the Collectorz phone app (CLZ Books) just this week, based on this thread, and it's been fun cataloging the collection.

    137 books by King himself, and probably another 30-40 that part of the "King collection" that are related to him in some way. Not including stuff by Owen or Joe.
