  1. I like Bookist much more and another also so fine. That was nice color combination. At last thanks for sharing.

  2. As a e-publishing startup, this is exactly what I was looking for. Great help. thanks

  3. I am reading all the reviews I can find. From your list, I like Bookish the best in terms of design. Seems well worth the $40. Is that a one-time fee? I wonder how they are for support. – Paul Chaplo, author of “Big Bend: Aerial Views of Big Bend Country” Publisher: Texas A&M University Press.

    • Hi Paul,

      Yes, it is a one-time fee. Support for Bookish is provided via a ticket system, and the author is an Elite Author (meaning they’ve sold a lot of themes), so it should be pretty good.

    • Depends…
      $40 is for the regular license
      Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for

  4. Advising people tp use Bookish is a wrong doing…It’s a nightmare to work with. I have used 30+ themes from TF and this one was among the worst.
