I am excited to announce the first public release of a program I have been working on for the past year or so. It is called BookJournal and is exactly what the name says it is: a digital book journal.

The program is open-source and free. It also runs on Windows, macOS or Linux.


  • Keep track of all of your books: the books you have read, are reading and would like to read
  • Show reading statistics including how many books and pages you have read in a given year
  • Automatically look up information about a book by entering its IBAN
  • See other books by the same author(s)
  • Categorize your books
  • Search through your books
  • Rate the books you have read and save your commentary
  • Add notes to your books
  • Tag your books for better searching
  • Light and dark mode

You can find more screenshots and information about BookJournal as well as download it at the following links:
