Alfa Ebooks Manager is a powerful and effective book organizer. It is capable of letting you organize both paper and electronic books (ebooks) in easy-to-manage virtual libraries. The latter provide a very handy and convenient manner of cataloging and organizing your books, as they come with plenty of effective customization possibilities. For example, you can add tags or any custom fields that will also make finding specific books within large databases a simple and fast job. The look of the “eLibrary” can also be customized in any way you prefer. Even realistic 3D models based on the cover images of ebooks can be displayed.
As you can see, Alfa Ebooks Manager is a powerful utility that comes packed with plenty of features, functions and options. It also allows categorizing, filtering and sorting the books by various criteria, and the books can be searched by their title, author or even ISBN. A large amount of information, from title, publisher and author, to ISBN, language, number of pages, or even physical dimensions can be added for every listed book.
This handy program can also scan your system, detect e-book files, and add the related books to the collection. Almost all known e-book file extensions are supported. Furthermore, there are comprehensive exporting capabilities that let you save the book database to various file formats like HTML and CSV.
It supports updating the data with information taken from online sources like bookstores (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Library, etc.). Unfortunately, retrieving the complete data about a book from the Internet cannot be performed using the free, Lite, version of this tool. This was quite a disappointment to me. You can benefit of this great function, if you purchase the full version of this tool. Other than that, there’s nothing else to criticize about this nice program. It’s a truly effective and handy book collection organizer and manager that works like a charm and offers a lot of cool features.
