I still think that Books is a program in which Apple has put little effort, especially for the number of readers we read Ipad or Mac. Could you recommend some alternative to read and organize books? Books is painful organizing books. Thanks!

Hi Eva,

The only other App I use to read books is the Kindle App. But that does mean buying books from Amazon.

Agree. I'm not on Mojave yet (eg. for reasons inc. Fujitsu ScanSnap sw isn't supported on it!). Yet when I do upgrade, I bet it still doesn't let you properly edit any new metadata fields, nor see the front cover in large before opening the book.

"Calibre" app may do organising (can't remember), I know it can edit metadata and convert ebook formats – but dunno how good it is at any/all of said functions. :-/
