Hello, I've made some bookcard layouts. There's four layouts with a few different colors each. I'm not using images in the layouts. They're smaller screen friendly. I might make some more. What are you looking for in a new layout?

I've also made a few layouts for export to html. These can be used on your computer, or phone, or printed out. You can create the file then print it to a pdf file to get a pdf. What are you looking for in a new layout for exporting to html?

I don't work for Bolide software, just making some simple html pages. They've said they'll add them to their app. They said people are often requesting new layouts, so what do you want in a new layout?

The export to html feature lets you save whatever list of books you want to a file separate from the All My Books software. For example, you want a list of the books on your wishlist printed out to bring with you. Pass out to all your friends and family. Etc. Any list you want to have the software print out for you.

My templates
1. has the synopsis and cover image, to me it's for browsing on my phone for which book I want to read next.
2. has the reference data and lines to print out, to me it's for bringing on a book buying trip, so you don't buy one you already have. Lines and space for note taking.
3. has title and author and very little else, handy for passing around to friends or family.

So what other templates would you find useful to print out, or carry on a portable device that doesn't have the all my books software on it?

If you're reading this, I'm talking to you. This is a chance to personalize the view in your all my books desktop app, and to personalize lists exported from the app. Limited time offer.
