Is there any software or plugin I can use to manage my pdf books? [closed]

I have many pdf books, and I want to get them managed like a book shelf, but I can not find a good software on linux for such pdf management.

"Zotero is a firefox plugin that manages citations and references sort of like endnote, except that it can also store snapshots of webpages and actual pdf files.

It also has built in bibliography export functions that can output bibtex files, interface with endnote, and openoffice.

The front page of their website has a short demo-video showing how it is web-site aware and can pull bibliography information directly from amazon, googlebooks, jstor, and other websites. Pretty good research tool.

I use it with bibtex/latex myself."

"Check out eKitaab for eBook management:

eKitaab is an eBook Catalog Manager
software to manage large collections
of ebooks. eKitaab allows you to read
books in their native readers on the
desktop, or on mobile devices, though
it is not a ebook reader.

eKitaab displays a list of all books
you have, with their titles, authors,
description and a photo of the book
covers. It also allows you to easily
categorize the books by creating
Reading Lists, and adding Tags.
eKitaab downloads all information from
the Internet, based on the ISBN of the
book, or by searching by author or

eKitaab is designed to be extremely
safe for the eBooks... the eBooks
themselves are never changed. eKitaab
stores basic information about the
book by changing the filename to
include the title, author and ISBN.
The other information is downloaded
from the Internet and not stored
locally (but caching is implemented,
to reduce repeated downloads).

eKitaab is free and open source software, it runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac.

Another option is Alexandria:

Alexandria is a GNOME application to help you manage your book collection.

Alexandria is also free and open source."
