Collectorz {review}

collectorzCollectors of books, music, movies, video games and comic books UNITE! Book Collectorz has a resource tool just for you and all of your thousands of collected items that fall into any of those mentioned categories. Collectorz is a cataloging system that allows you to create an easily accessible catalog of all of the items you own in one of those categories. We had the opportunity to trial the Pro Version for book collecting.

When I was younger, I owned many books, many video tapes, and my music collection whether it was on cassette or CD (and yes, vinyl) was extremely large. My records were as detailed as listing the author/singer, style of music, storyline and genre of the book or movie, and let us not talk about the cassette tapes I made where I listed each song, in order, as well as the singer. Yes, it was very tedious, but there was never a doubt as to what I owned, so if I were ever out and about, I didn’t have to worry about making duplicate purchases.

Many, many years later and quite a few books, music, and movies less than ever, the resource I could have used so many years ago has been created and proves to be a great tool for anyone who finds themselves with endless shelves of books, covered with racks of CD’s and DVD’s, etc. or and is always wondering if they already have that copy of the item.

The process of creating your catalogue is really easy. You enter the books, which can be done manually typing them in or you can purchase a scanner which allows you to scan the ISBN# on your book and the information is collected and added to your database. You can also record detailed information (along w/the basics – author, title, ISBN#) about the book like the genre, number of pages, the publication date and sometimes the program even includes a book cover image if available. You can even rate the books, but what made me smile is that you can also set it up using the Dewey Decimal system. My aunt would absolutely love that one.

Your catalogue can be accessed by printing it out or obviously the best way for people today is online or on most mobile devices. Once your catalogue is created you can use it to:

• Help in eliminating duplicate purchases
• Maintain an organized record of what you have.
• Share your collections with others.

You can try a FREE version of Book Collector. Book Collector Standard Edition is available for $24.95 and the Book Collector Pro Edition is available for $49.95.
