If you're a bookworm and you've literally got books all over the place, then why not get organised by cataloguing them all in a database.

And what better tool to do it with than Book Collector which is like the iTunes of book cataloguing.

This simply but impressive program allows you to browse through your collection from the comfort of your PC enabling you to share and rediscover old titles that had since been consigned to a dusty bookshelf.

You can order your books by author, title, publisher, year or cover art. The clever thing however is that you don't need to scan in any of the cover art - it downloads everything you need from a database simply by using the ISBN number.

You can include personal details like purchase date, store, location, whether you've read-it as well as catalogue chapter lists, characters and book creator credits.

In addition, the program links book entries to e-book or audio-book files. In addition to downloading cover art, it downloads a quick synopsis of each book which is great for writing reviews or sharing titles with a friend.

The only thing lacking maybe is something to save your favourite quotes or pages in and possible a link to the publisher's site for the author's latest releases.

Book Collector helps you keep your book collection perfectly organized. It enables you not only to catalog your books but also to keep track of those you have lent, avoid buying duplicate books and a lot more, all of these through an eye-catching interface.

Catalog books automatically, download all data and images

Catalog your home library by typing or scanning the ISBN numbers or by typing the author and title.

All data is automatically downloaded from various national libraries and online book stores including image, author, title, publisher, release year, etc.
