I created an easy way to browse & find Google books (today is my birthday 🎈)

Books πŸ“š

Find books from Google Play Books

I was casually surfing online and saw an article about Google Books API. I read the docs, and decided to create a minimal, lightweight and beautiful web app to browse & find books using Google Books API.

That's why I created Books πŸ“š.


Books is an open-source project which make use of Google Books API.

Some of its features are:

  • Search book by title, author, category, genre etc.

  • Minimal and elegant UI.

  • PWA support.

  • Dark mode. Can't live without it!


Bonus: πŸŒ— I also added dark mode so that your eyes won't hurt during night!

I see you're having a problem with the app, but i can't replicate it on my PC. Here it's all working fine. Anyway I'll do a check up.

I'm on the issue. It took me a couple of nights to make the app.
