Supporting Calibre is My New Year's Resolution

For this new year I will continue to support Kovid and Calibre. The way I like to support this software is via Patreon. I have used this software for about 10 years and find supporting calibre's continued development via a small monthly contribution worth it. If you choose not to use Patreon there are other ways to support Calibre. To all here on Mobileread and the Calibre forum I hope you had a Merry Christmas / Happy holiday season and may your New Year be safe and full of wonder. :xmas:

Is Overdrive integration always sketchy?

I got an H2O 2 for Christmas. My main reason for upgrading was Overdrive integration on the device. So I set up my H2O and started looking for books to check out. Most of what I wanted was unavailable, so I put them on hold. I have two libraries, so I switched cards and had better luck.

It didn't work the rest of...
