Changes

  • Fixes problems for 10.4 users introduced in 3.1.9

Books is much more than a simple library manager for Mac OS X. It is your new virtual book cataloger, able to store in detail all the essential information about your books (author, title, review, publisher, commentary, illustration, etc.). Entering data is very easy, very much like filling a loan card in the library, with the noticeable difference that it is for your own personal use and that you have much more options, like keeping notes on your favorites or recommending works to your friends.

With Books, you will no longer have to review all the bookcases in the library to find what your looking for. Books lists all the novels in your private collection. Books supports text without format and XML, which allows you to import and/or to export data of your library to HTML or XML formats.

    Doesn't do imports from other programs. Keeps crashing. Looking for alternatives. More.
