About This File This resource uses Google Books API to grab data from any book to your site, as long the data is available on Google Books. This resource supports both 10 and 13 digit ISBN format

What does "renewal 20$ per year" mean? Will it stop working one year after purchase, or is this renewal fee for support and updates only?

You can keep using as long as you want (or it works due to changes in the framework). You only won't be able to download new versions or request support.

@Adriano Faria, when trying to create a bookshelf, we get the following error:

OutOfRangeException:  (0)
#0 /path/to/ips/applications/books/modules/front/books/bookshelves.php(27): IPS\Node\_Model::loadAndCheckPerms(1)
#1 /path/to/ips/system/Dispatcher/Controller.php(101): IPS\books\modules\front\books\_bookshelves->manage()
#2 /path/to/ips/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(152): IPS\Dispatcher\_Controller->execute()
#3 /path/to/ips/index.php(13): IPS\_Dispatcher->run()
#4 {main}

Also, it would be nice if you trimmed the ISBN input before hitting the Google Books API to remove leading and trailing whitespace.

There’s a dummy category (shelf) automatically added on app install. Have you deleted it directly on DB? There’s no way to delete via app.

Nope. We have not made any database modifications.

Another thing we noted, that it would be nicer to take a larger version of the cover other than the thumbnail from the Google API. When clicking on images where the cover came from the API call, we have a tiny version compared to the larger versions from manual uploads in testing.

I see this is hardcoded in the API call, but that Google provides options for other sizes.

It also might be nice to have an explicit search option, where the user presses a button to search against the Google API (rather than as a surprise when losing focus on the input). From a UX perspective, it's not apparent at all that a search is happening, especially if a match isn't found.
