Exactly what I was looking for.
Though it's still lacking some basic taxonomies like Publisher, Language and Year of publication, it's the best plugin I've seen for book reviewing or to build bibliographies online. Very usable!
The author is very kind answering all questions and giving great support at the forum.
No auto-fill the book data and book cover
Not able to rate in half/stars. (I know, I'm stretching here...)
Ability to organize books by author, subject, genre, rating, title, and series
Easy to use and stay organized
super fast response from plugin author on support
It fits within theme, doesn't demand its own 'look'
After using other plugins and review plugins, this is the best there is out there. It's ease of use, powerful organizational engine - you won't find a better one.
The support is super good as well. Gives you the ability to either include in your main feed of posts OR leave it as a stand alone category.
My niche book directory has come out beautifully using this plugin:
[ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]
I used it in combination with the new weaver theme, so the book image comes out really well when sharing on social media. This may happen with every theme, I don't know.
I'm very happy with the results.
I took a look at all other plugins for book management, this is by far the simplest and neatest. No hassle, no fuss.
Books get important fields like categories, subjects, cover photo, ISBN.
Rather than book reviews, I'm using the plugin for a start-up book publishing company, and it works great.
Authors get Name and Description only, I hope that we could also have author photos; that would be a much-needed addition.
Also, if we could have a shortcode for listing authors (just like books). I know it falls outside the description of the plugin's usage, but still... :)
Thank you for a great plugin!
I like what you have done and hope to use this one for a lot of reviews. Thanks for your good work.
But, I need some help on something else.
Some months ago I used this plugin and I don´t know why I deleted it. Now I install again and it is much better.

«Book Review Library» caught my attention straight away: I needed a plugin that would give book reviews a central role in my website. Using "pages" gave reviews prominence but lacked a classification system and wasn't handy. Using "posts" diluted the book reviews with the rest of the sit posts.
This plugin creates an area of its own for book reviews, indipendently handled from pages and posts. That's what I needed. And it does so in a neat way: a detailed way of classification, search, visualization, ecc.
Easy to use, customizable, elegantly coded, and well thought; and the author provided me fast and efficient support when I needed some tweaking for language localization.
