Literally the BEST book app EVER!!
This app is amazing!! The free version is insane!!!!! You can add unlimited books (?) I’m up to 600 and I see no limit in sight 😂 The paid version is literally just graphs and data that you get, I personally see no value in it, but you do you! You can add books to your TBR, to your Just Read, or to your Started pile. There are many ways to add your books. Either you can scan the barcode on the back, search up the title name and author to find it, or you can manually type in the book if you are that type of person. You can also scan many books at a times, you just have to select the option. When scanned, searched, or inputted manually, there is a book blurb given for each book and where to buy it, along with book genre details and other stuff. You can also create different “piles” or folders of books that can edit with ease. I personally like to organize my books into genre with these folders. The app is a BREEZE to navigate and this app truly is the best out there for FREE! I have seen and used many apps to keep track of which books I have, and all have had flaws. Either I had too many books, or I couldn’t search up the books I already had, or some other flaw that made me unable to use the app. But this app has zero, and I personally challenge you to find one
A treat for those disenfranchised…
I started using Reading List maybe 6 months ago. I was searching for a digital way to store my ever evolving tbr list, while compiling lists of books that I have collected (lovingly & haphazardly) for 30 years. I’ve spent many a dollar on paper mementos from bygone eras & yet more times than not, I’m literally lost in a bookstore wondering “Do I have this edition? Do I have it in paperback, hardcover, signed, limited edition?” And yes I’ve bought multiple copies of many (my local library loves to see me donate). So you can understand why when I began cataloging my personal library to a digital format, I downloaded 3 or four free apps to test to see which would best suit my long term needs. After several tries, I kept two, because yeah I like having a backup plan. Reading List was one of my final and now is my only reading list/biblio type app. The developer, Andrew, actually replied to my app user feedback email. And he is responsive on Twitter to followers of the app. In a world where service and help is no longer a courtesy but is usually rendered by ever infuriating automation, it was nice to see the actual human interface of this app, caring for his product. I hope this review though long, helps this young developer’s dream. It certainly helped my disorganized collection of books. Many thanks!
I love this app! I do use Goodreads to track books but I wanted someplace non-social to track the spiritual books I read since people seem to be so judgy these days no matter what faith or eclectic spirituality you espouse. I was immediately impressed w this simple book tracker and how easy it is to look up books by barcode or title, author etc and add it to custom shelves, track your reading, add a rating. Not sure why book reading always has to be a social event, tied to social media, when it’s a mostly solitary endeavor. I love that I finally have a very nice non-social book tracker! Not all features are intuitive to figure out but there is a help menu that helped me figure out for example, how to add a book to a shelf. (Have to add book to Reading list first, then scroll to bottom of book description page to Manage Lists.) LOVE that I can have a book on multiple lists! In addition to categories & book club lists, I like to have lists that tell me whether the book is in Kindle, iBooks, physical etc so I can find the book if I want to re-read it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this app and tipping the developer if you like the app since it’s completely free to use. (Tipping is under the in app settings menu.)
Developer Response ,
