About Bookshelf

Bookshelf is an inspiring, easy-to-use, intuitive app built to help enhance your reading, studying, and learning experience.

Bookshelf Review

Bookshelf is an app that can be called our virtual library in a nutshell.

What do we like about Bookshelf?

Organizing all of your books is really simple using the Bookshelf app. Your virtual library will automatically enter the necessary information, such as the title, author, number of pages, publication year, and more if the books are more recent and have barcodes.

What skills does it improve?

A library or book collection can be catalogued and organised with the Bookshelf App. It can keep track of both your wish list of books and your reading progress. You may locate great new books and talk about book recommendations.

What age is it appropriate for?

The bookshelf is appropriate for all ages. 

Is Bookshelf free?

Bookshelf is free to download on all Android and iOS devices. 

Is Bookshelf easy to use?

Depending on what works best for you, you can categorise the books in customizable shelves and apply specific tags to the books you upload. For different genres, authors, book lengths, emotions, and whatever else comes to mind, you may create separate shelves. Alternatively, you can just upload all of your books to a single shelf and use the sort tool to arrange them according to factors like title, author, page count, rating, and more.

How will students benefit?

Even better, you can scan several books simultaneously rather than one at a time using a batch scanner. Additionally, you can manually enter any ancient or rare books you have in your collection that don't have barcodes or don't appear in the Bookshelf app automatically.

Students can rate and add any notes they wish to keep in mind for the future for each book they submit, such as what they liked and didn't like. They can keep track of any book loans they make to friends on the entry for the particular book.

How will users benefit?

Users can search through the app's current bestsellers to find their next book and can put a book on their wishlist if it grabs their attention.

The Bookshelf app provides a variety of customizable highlighters. For a more thorough study session, you can also make notes while reading. To learn ideas more quickly, you may also make flashcards with text and pictures using the Bookshelf app. The best strategy to retain your information over time is to visualise what you are learning.

What can Bookshelf improve on?

You should have a VitalSource Bookshelf account to effectively use the Bookshelf app.

How much does Bookshelf cost?

Bookshelf is available free of cost. 

Final thoughts

The Bookshelf app allows you to customise your preferred font, font size, and backdrop colours to make reading simpler. This will give its readers a more individualised experience.

With the Bookshelf app's Read Aloud feature, you can listen to your books while you're on the road and continue your education. You'll find this function useful when travelling. You may effortlessly continue reading where you left off by syncing all of your work and your current reading position across all of your devices.
