Whether books line every wall of your house or barely fill one shelf, Bookpedia is the perfect application to help you keep track of them. Entering the information for each book is fast and easy since the program retrieves all the information from the Internet for you. So you can sit back and relax with a good book.

Bookpedia gives you access to numerous international book sites as well as Doghouse, Bookpedia's own media server, the Library of Congress and libraries attached to the z39.50 server system. Search for your books using keywords - title, author, publisher, ISBN etc. - or scan the UPC and let Bookpedia do the rest.

Create smart collections and start a wish list for those books you don't own yet and a borrowed collection for those you want back. View your entries as a standard list, browse only the covers or use the info view for a personalized look of Bookpedia. Share your collections with friends using the customizable HTML export templates and learn more about your own collection with the Statistics feature. Bookpedia comes with full Spotlight integration.

What's New in Version 5.4

Bug fix: Rare bug with the autofill that could cause the smart collection rule sheet to freeze up.
Bug fix: when opening an entry twice for editing (by accident) any changes will be saved automatically.
Bug fix: EPUB import could stall if it encountered an incorrectly encoded release date in the EPUB files.
Bug fix: Status column now sorts all images of the same type together.
Plug-in fixes: IBS and Bol NL search sites.

Customer Reviews

Solid and great support

We’ve used Bookpedia for over 5 years and never had a problem. We are cataloging a small library with it and currently have about 8000 entries in it. It is working just fine with this many entries. Recently we had some questions about how to customize it for our specific needs and Conor, the developer, spent no small amount of time corresponding with me about how to achieve what would work for us. At one point he even took our file and worked on it to save us time. Can’t ask for better support. It is flexible and allows for customization which is key for us. Highly recommended. I am not aware of anything else like this for books for the Mac, especially at this price.

Nice application, but update won't download.

Running OSX 10.8.5 on my Mac. App Store says there's an update for Bookpedia, but it won't load. Trying to update returns this message:

Bookpedia failed to download
Use the Purchases page to try again.

But trying to update from the Purchases page returns the same message. What's wrong? And please fix it!
