Just What I Needed! 😁💕

If you are looking for a way to keep track of your books, current reads or future reads than I HIGHLY recommend this app.

Reading List is really incredible in what it does for being free. You can scan the barcode of your book and it’ll pop up on the main page. Then it allows you to categorize your books and keeps track of them as you read them. You can make certain personalized categorizes for your books into and label them as anything you’d like.

This app in my opinion is definitely worth downloading even if just to try it out because for free, I can’t complain. I’ve only had it for a couple of days and knock on wood, it’s been add free. It was just what I needed. I cannot stress this enough, HIGHLY recommend. 😄💖

Mostly fantastic, with one gripe

I really love this app. It helps me keep track of the books I’m reading and that I want to read very easily. I go through a lot of books, and often would forget what I had read from week to week, and this app helps keep me organized and remember books from months back.
The only thing I wish would change is that when you reread a book, you essentially have to erase the old entry in your history to accommodate for the new one, as the app doesn’t appear to understand what rereading is. For example, if I read “Frankenstein” in September and decided to reread it in November, the app would make me reset the entry to November, making it seem like I never read it in September. The way I get around this is by making a note of the dates, but I wish that the feature didn’t erase books you’ve read before. Other than that, it’s a great app that I use every day.

The PERFECT Reading Log

This app is perfect in every way for logging books you have read, and for keeping a list of books you want to read. You can also scan barcodes at the bookstore with a touch of a button to add those titles to your “want to read” list.

You can mark your progress through Books and look back on books you have finished as well as how long it took you to finish them. You can also categorize books into a series or a genre. I use it to record my physical books, Ebooks, and audiobooks that I have read and want to read. I can also look back and see how many books I read each year since it logs when you start and finish each book. Excellent app for every bookworm!
