What our amazing users say.

Candl's simple, elegant interface makes it easy for me to keep track of and keep notes on my reading.

I use Candl to have a running list of what I have read. I read pretty fast, and sometimes I forget I have already read a book and Candl helps so much with this. I also like that I know what authors I want to keep reading.

I was looking for a non-Amazon alternative to GoodReads, where I could have a record of what I was reading and what I had read over the year. Candl is perfect for these reasons and a nice, clean, easy-to-use, no-fuss platform as well.
