Candl — The non-social book tracker
Bringing the completely new expirience, aimed at avid reader, it let's you: organize books into lists, add rich notes and citations, set the reading goals, and much more.
Organize books into lists like reading, read and planned.
Book lists are very easy to manage. Read books are grouped by month, and you can also add tags for easy searching.
Add rich notes
Have you ever been wondering how to better remember what you read? One asnwer to that question is making notes. It lets you think through what you read once again and so make the memory last. We are strong believers that in order to remember the information better you need to structure it. That's why we have bullet points, citations, and even TODO checkboxes.
Add reviews to your public reading journal
Reading journal is a place to direct friends to when they ask for book recommendations. Mine do that all the time. It's convinient to have a single place to direct them to. I'm also in control of what notes are going public and what are not.
Set your reading goals
If you never considered setting a reading goal for yourself, tha might be a good time to think about it. Reading goals help organize our minds and get us into reading more.
Track your reading progress
Create TODO lists to keep your reading progress within a particular book.
The "divide and conquer" of learning
is organize and repeat.
