Users reviews & testimonials

We are so very pleased with Readerware, and the wonderful support you offer. The entire package is far and away the absolute best of its kind, and the real bonus is that whenever we come across a sticking point, your response is incredibly fast. We have been using Readerware for many months now, and it has made us believers.

As an avid reader I’ve tried several other software products including my own attempts at creating a book database. I discovered Readerware in 2012; and while the company offers a 30 free-trial, I bought it within a week of using it.

The interface is very intuitive. The Drag and Drop and Auto Catalog features, you can quickly build a system to reference the books you’ve read or plan to read.

I rely on the search functions when I remember a story, book cover, but not the author or perhaps I’m looking for one book of a series. You control the combinations of queries.

Like every other testimonial here I proclaim kudos to Readerware! I have grown very dependent on this great product!

Now, if you want to take it to the next level and have your own, “if you like, then you\'ll like…” Export your Readerware catalog as a csv file. Then go to and import your collection straight into your account. My doing this has helped me discover new authors and great books.

I did not mention the number of books and CDs in my library as a backhanded way of boasting, but to give you an idea of how important your Readerware Software is to me.

For the FIRST time in my long adult life of collecting it has saved me many, many HOURS of searching to find something I\'m looking for. About 90% of my CDs and 25% of my books are currently cataloged. I am a devoted DAILY user of Readerware!

I really struggled to find a decent program to act as a book library. There was one \"un-named\" program that offered a free version to try but was so limited in functionality that it was impossible to get a realistic idea of its capabilities. I came across a few that were functional but no longer supported and had no web lookup facility. I knew what I was looking for and the functionality I expected to find. I was beginning to despair until I came across Readerware.

From the beginning it was easy to grasp and the web lookup functionality was better than I expected. I used it for a few weeks before I paid for it and have never regretted it since.

The support is fantastic and better than any I have ever come across.

If you are looking for a program to catalogue your books then do not hesitate to buy Readerware Books.

I love Readerware. It is one of my favorite and most used programs and has saved me innumerable hours for cataloging my books of which I have almost 600. Without Readerware the catalog would be a pipe dream.Sure, I could have filed the books using the Dewey Decimal System , but locating them would be hard (I have found many duplicates thanks to Readerware because i could not physically locate the book! You have saved me money from not buying duplicate copies because I could not find where I put the book! Now before I buy any book I check Readerware to be sure I do not already own the book!
