    I have had nothing but bad experiences with Apple Books on my desktop Mac. On numerous occasions I've lost books while syncing and on more than one occasion I've lost ALL of the books in my library!

    So, I've gotten in the habit of bypassing the sync process altogether and adding books to my iPad manually. The downside is that I cannot backup using the Books sync.

    So, I'm looking for an alternative. I know that there are a lot of third party backup apps: AnyTrans, iMazing and iExplorer, to name a few. The BIG question for me is whether these apps will be able to restore ALL of my books AND restore them to the categories that I've created?? I'm guessing not!

    I have thousands of books in over 50 categories and I don't want to spend a whole day (or two) reorganizing my library if I have a fatal crash on my iPad which has happened to me before. Any suggestions??
