Why do you love this Extension?
This extension fit my needs perfectly for an online library. Its ability to pull information from Amazon's book index alone is enough for me to recommend using this extension. It provides an excellent way for me to create a dynamic online catalog of my many hundreds of books and movies.

What does this Extension do to enhance your website?
This extension saves me time by auto-inputting book information straight from Amazon, once I've added the ISBN. I don't even have to upload a photo of the cover. This is the nearly-perfect solution to creating an online library for my book collection.
