I am an author of over a dozen books. I use the professional MyBookTable plugin, and find it worth the price. Overall I find it to be incredibly useful and an invaluable part of my website. I like the ability to add my book descriptions easily to individual blog posts, and to aggregate a list of online retailers for my book.
There are two areas where the plugin could be improved in the future:
A) Make the book cover the post’s automatic featured image. Currently, it defaults to the site’s default image instead. Under Screen Options there is no way to add a featured image to a book, so the post thumbnail is not the book cover. I’ve worked around this for social media by installing Social Rocket for the time being.
B) For accessibility reasons I use a tablet to design my site, and currently, adding book links to other retailers must be done on a desktop or laptop computer, and trying to do so on a tablet, the field where you paste your book’s link is greyed out, so I always have to switch gears and use a computer.
