  1. Hey guys, I made a workflow that seems to work pretty awesome in conjunction with this one. Instead of searching the Books store, this one allows you to just search the books you've already downloaded by parsing the sqlite database where the book files are stored. I just used this workflow to shortcut to a title, download it, then reopen Alfred (with the previous text still input) and immediately access the new book from there from the workflow I made. Pretty snazzy stuff. Thanks for making this amazing Workflow; it's mindblowing to me I never thought someone would already have something like this made
  2. Hey guys, Not sure if you're still looking, but I created a workflow to do just this. I'm pretty happy with the results, as it allows you to have fine-grained and also looser control over what you're searching for in the Books app, depending on how you're searching. I'd love if you gave it a test and let me know if there's anything you'd want to improve with it
  3. Overview here, with the latest release you can install here. Summary of the current features (6-30-19): You can search for title and author using the keyword search (default is "ib"). You can also use options as follows (in the format "ib -a" for each option, respectively): -a search by author only -t search by title only -g search by genre only -h get available options for using this workflow By default, if a title doesn't have a genre, Alfred Books won't be able to search for it. While searching, you can press ⌘L to see some metadata about the selected title; this includes: title and author, genre, percentage read, description While searching, pressing ⇧ (shift) on a selected title will attempt to show a cover and the actual filename. While searching, pressing your action button (one of the following: → (right arrow), fn, ctrl, ⇥ (tab)) will allow you to act directly on the Books file. Be cautious here, as modifying the file from this interface may cause inconsistencies with the Books sqlite database, causing you to need to modify the actual sqlite database if you say modify or delete a file here. This software (currently) only searches for downloaded books by confirming an accessible path to said file in the Books sqlite database. If they're on iCloud and not downloaded, they won't show up in Alfred Books!
