@Alamantus I just looked at Inventaire's wiko and it confused the heck out of me. Then I looked at the website and well...

It seems to be aimed soley at physical books with isbns... Lots of books especally indie books no longer have a paper edition at all. There's a lot more cost to the author to produce a paperbook.

@Shutsumon It does enable the addition of digital editions, but the website itself is definitely more target toward something I don't find useful. It's the collection of book data specifically that is useful in my opinion. You can create and edit content freely, which is super handy for things like @Readlebee, which is currently set up to pull book data from their database!
