Updating book collection
I would like to congratulate you on recent changes. : D I’m such a control freak when it comes to my books and this app has made it both helpful and fun to get a good overview of all my books!The new design for the Book Connect is excellent, it is cleaner and crisper, plus it is faster to use.

I find it a superb catalogue manager and a blessed relief after years of trying to maintain a very large collection with spreadsheets. which means you guys are busily working away at making CLZ Books even BETTER than better! I just wanted to send a big THANK YOU for making the app I’ve always needed in my life!It is one of the very few apps I have been willing to pay for (I'd rather spend the money on more books!
