How can I get it?
For most distributions you can use Flatpak to install and run cozy: Flathub Or use the following commands:
flatpak remote-add --user --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo flatpak install --user flathub com.github.geigi.cozy
If you're running elementaryOS, you can get cozy from the App Center.
Arch Linux users can find cozy under the name
cozy-audiobooks in the AUR:
$ pacaur -S cozy-audiobooks
Ubuntu, Debian, openSUSE, Fedora repositories
If you prefer a custom repository - for Ubuntu, Debian, openSUSE and Fedora there are package repositories on the openSUSE Build Service.

Cozy for macOS is currently on beta. It's tested only on 10.14 Mojave so far and there are some known bugs:
- no integration in notification center or any other desktop integration really
- media keys are not working
- dark mode requires 2x switching in settings + is not loading automatically at startup
- large Cozy.app

I have imported wrong files and cannot get rid of them:
Delete the following folders to reset cozy (this will loose all saved progress):
I can't uninstall the Flatpak:
flatpak uninstall com.github.geigi.cozy/x86_64/stable
flatpak uninstall --user com.github.geigi.cozy/x86_64/stable
Thanks to @Meresmata
I have my audiobooks in a location that is not accessible in the Flatpak sandbox:
You can override the flatpak settings and allow access to a path (e.g. /media) like this:
flatpak --user override --filesystem=/media com.github.geigi.cozy
A big thanks
