"The ideal repository for book recommendations gathered from friends, reviews, and other sources, the app will locate the actual book cover and store it on its iBook-like shelf or as an entry on a list. The app can also access all the book titles, charts, covers, descriptions, and acquisition options in any of the iBookstores worldwide, Amazon, and the free texts at Google Books."
A simple and beautiful layout will help you keep track of the amazing books you come across.
Feature Highlights: * Create a personal library of books * Information is retrieved directly from Amazon and iBooks Store * Add manually (not via search), or SCAN BARCODE * Snap picture of cover when manually adding a book * Includes charts of top books for all genres * Book Genius feature (find similar titles) * Touch link to view details for each book (and easily purchase) * Entire library is locally saved/cached * 2 different library views (grid and list) * Ability to sort the list * Share features * Export features
It's also a great help when friends and family suggest books to you and you never know where to write them down and eventually forget.
"Every day you hear or read about a book that sounds interesting - and now there's an app designed to help track all those books recommendations," commented developer Giacomo Balli. "My Book List is the personalized book list of all the books you've been meaning to read, and those you've read."

App Store Reviews

This is the first time I've downloaded this app and so far I really like it. It's easy to find books and the layout is nice and simple. My only complaint is that it is advertised as a free app in the app store but in order to do ANYTHING in the app itself, you have to pay the 99 cents to be a "premium" member.
Not a big deal, I probably would have paid for it anyway, I just wish they had advertised it that way.
