Technology has placed book lovers in a most awkward position. On the one hand, you have an impressive library of books lining the shelves of your home. But with the advent of eBooks, you also have a growing collection of digital books. How can you be expected to keep track of all of your reading material across all media? With today's discount software promotion, Alfa eBooks Manager!

Alfa eBooks Manager lets you organize both electronic and paper books in a single consolidated library. With Alfa eBooks Manager, you'll be able to group, filter, and sort your books using multiple parameters, including title, author, and ISBN! Innovative book cards give you a wide array of fields to fill in for each title - author, title, genre, publisher, date, price, you name it. And if none of these fields floats your boat, you can create tags and custom fields to suit your needs.

You'll be impressed by the visual appeal of Alfa eBooks Manager, which displays the covers of your book collection attractively on shelves. Plus, you have full control over the layout, scale, and color scheme of your library, opening the door to full customization of the look and feel of your library. And when you need to update book data, there's no need to manually enter changes, since Alfa eBooks Manager is able to update book data from Google Books, Amazon, B&N, and a multitude of other sites. Same holds true for book cover art.

Lastly, in addition to helping you organize and track your library, Alfa eBooks Manager can also help you to move files between your computer, external storage card, and eBook reader! Imagine being able to import huge digital book collections into Alfa eBooks Manager just by sliding your eBook reader's memory card into your computer!

brenda adams HOW UPDATE?
I have older version 3.2.0.2 and need to update, however at website and in program itself--in About or in Help--I see nothing. What is latest version and what are changes and HOW does one update? I don't find a letter from you telling how (I've read that this is how you notify of an update but sorry, can't find.)

brenda adams Thanks Yuriy! I am enjoying your program and thank you for corresponding with me when I had questions.

You have some very nice features in your program. (I own every book program known to man, I think.) I like Alfa very much for my many ebooks (includes books made by my Mastercook software...way cool to be able to put them into Alfa and point to the book and keep notes about the book, etc. PLUS all my many books and periodicals in varlous computer/Ereader formats.)

Is there a limit to the number of ebooks, books, mags, pdf's, etc that can be brought into your program?
Another question: I've used your Import from Calibre feature. Nice!! What happens if I add more ebooks to Calibre and need to therefore Import from Calibre again? Will it see just the newest additions? Or will it duplicate all the ones already added?

Do you plan more development?

Yuriy Loza Thank Brenda!
The numbers of books is limited only by the power of your computer. Usually we recommend to keep up to 20 thousand books in one database. If you have more - you can split your library into 2 or several parts

When you import from Calibre again the Scan tool will find duplicates and you will be able to remove duplicates (not to add them to database)

Yes the new version is under development

Ely S. 1. As I remember well, Alfa eBooks does also import and manage books from the Google books site - collected in the user's personal Google library rsp in Gooreader. Is this true?

2. If one has the free version of Alfa eBooks already installed, how to upgrade the existing version to the paid Alfa eBooks Pro version?

Needs the old programm version and database to be deleted? Or will the Pro version overtake the existing old database?

Thanks for your kind clarification

Yuriy Loza 1. Yes Alfa can import Google Library XML file
2. The Pro version will work with the same database file. It won't be deleted

Ely S. Kindle, eBooks, PDFs, Google books, computer files, eLibraries, book shelves and much more, administrated in one book program - a dream has become true. Best book management software I have ever purchased.

Now, is there a possibility to get the library of a scientific book reference management system (ie CITAVI https://www.citavi.com) rsp its database integrated into Alfa eBooks as well?

Which format could such a database have?

Or can the Alfa eBooks database be integrated into such a book reference management system?

Yuriy Loza Hi Ely, thanks
Integration with this system is a separate task and it could be fulfilled for additional fee.
Or you can do this integration yourself. Alfa uses open database format .SDF so it's possible to develop a .net app, integrating this database and any system

Steven Barnett I'm trying to download the trial and keep getting a page not found error:

"The requested page "/files/aem2.zip" could not be found."

I tried the "Free" edition and that happily scanned for eBooks then refused to let me add them to the library as that is a function of the paid version. So I have ended up with a completely empty library with no way to add the books I have on my local machine.

Constantin Florea @Steven Barnett - I am sorry for the issue with the download URL. We have updated it with the one from the product site.

Steven Barnett Thanks for that, but that page allows me to download the "Free" edition or to BUY the full edition.

I had previously installed the free edition, left it for 10 minutes while it scanned my ebooks and PDFs, only to be told that I could not add any of the books it found because that was a function of the paid edition. Not exactly a free trial.

Not to worry.

Constantin Florea @Steven Barnett - We can only provide the trial download URL for the application. In the case of this product, there is no other trial download URL except for the one associated with the free product:

Steven Barnett That's fine. I understand it's not your fault. However, I can't make an assessment of this product using the free version because it has next to no functionality. Nothing that I would want to do can be done with this version. The tool is all about managing an eBook library and the free version cannot manage an eBook library.

So, my options are to forget it or pay for it and hope it does what I want. Given those options, I'll pick the "forget it" option.

That's not the fault of BitsDuJour (an excellent service) but is the fault of a vendor who offers a "free trial" that is incapable of being trialed.

Pavi Johnson Hi, I also am having trouble testing due to the free version limitations. If I use a barcode scanner to generate a list of ISBNs, can Alfa bulk import them and fill in the relevant information?

It seems like Alfa can import csv with certain fields mapped - does this work if only ISBN is present?

More importantly, if I import a list of ISBNs, can Alfa fill in the details of all books in bulk, without the need to do individually?

Best, /Pavi

Yuriy Loza Hi Pavi,
Yes, you can import the list of ISBNs via CSV import
and then use Bulk Web Update tool to get the books data from the web

Jo Ann Rice Is there any chance that this program will be created for IOS computers and tablets etc.? There are so many programs like this out there right now, but trying to find one for a Mac is nearly impossible! Please tell me it's in the works. :)

Terence User I am new to Alpha eBook Manager program. I would like to know if I need to buy additional gadgets such as scanner, etc in order to run the program Alpha eBook Manager? With this program, will I be able to record books and periodicals in Chinese?

Thank you.

Yuriy Loza Terence , you don't need the scanner to run the program. It supports Unicode so you can enter book data in Chinese

RS I don't see the purpose of offering this software on BDJ when it is currently two cents cheaper at the developer's site. I'm considering a purchase; however, it seems to me that a further discount should be offered as an incentive for loyal BDJ customers who tend to have more IT knowledge than the average bear.
