BookSmart is, quite possibly, the most productive application I have on ...

I have used BookSmart to lay out two books so far: one was small, about 20 pages, but the other was close to 120 pages. Both projects went very well.

I don’t have the fastest computer in the world, and I recognize that BookSmart is written in Java, so I don’t expect it to be quite as snappy as other applications. But it is free and it is good enough for me.

I am incredibly thankful to the developers for the time and work they have contributed to make such a useful application. Aside from Microsoft Word, BookSmart is probably the only other application I have used to actually produce something tangible; and, unlike Microsoft Word, the things I can make are beautiful and worth sharing.

Thank you, developers, for all the work you do.
