    Bibliophilia I love this app it help me keep track of my multiple books, but while scanning my books the app has stop and it won't let me scanned more books it has stop on 250 books and that's not even half of the books I got, is there a limit to scan books and also it will be better to look up books on other site and not only on Google books.
