Mobile app for browsing, reading my library?

I already backup my Calibre library stored in cloud services. Would be fantastic to be able to access my books this way on mobile phones, browsing through my catalog and launching the books in ereader apps. Any interest in publishing mobile Calibre apps?

New to Forum but not to Kindle

:rolleyes: My First Post - Tried searching for the subject but result was confusing. Not sure whether others have encountered the same problem I encountered. On New Years day I upgraded my old series 4 Kindle to a new Touch unit. I understand that the system is similar in most respects to the Paper White version. I backed-up all my old 'Documents' folder from my old Kindle to my PC and connected my new Kindle. Hello there was no Documents folder showing in Windows Explorer. Okay, assuming...

TIME magazine interview

Your new novel, Hippie, is based on your experiences exploring South America and Europe in the 1970s. Why write this story now? We have lost the ability to hear what our neighbors have to say. We have polite conversations, but at the end of the day, we don’t hear them. There was a moment in […]

Will X-rays damage my tablet PC?

I have taken laptops through airport security before, but they close and the screen is not directly exposed to X-rays. However my Lenovo tablet does not have a cover and I am planning on taking it with me on a trip. Should I get some kind of protective sleeve for it?

Looking for a simple e-reader without touchscreen due to shaky hands?

Hi everyone, What would be best recommendations for a reliable simple e-reader without touchscreen, as well as no need at all for keyboard, dictionary or wi-fi (usb connection to computer is good enough)? I am getting one for my 80+ grandmother who has tremor in her hands, and uses it to only read books and turn pages (i.e., she never uses dictionary or makes notes). Her old one fit this purpose perfectly but just died. Unfortunately, her ability to use touchscreens is only about 50% success...

Reading in 2019

Great, a post about resolutions, just what everyone needs. Love ’em or hate ’em, the start of a new year is indeed the time to think about resolutions, things you’d like to try doing — or doing better — and for me it’s reading. Don’t get me wrong, I read constantly, but it’s usually limited to magazines, comics, bandes-dessinées, and tons of stuff on the web. I’ve been trying to get my book reading habit back up and running for years now, and it’s a constant struggle. I don’t know when it happe...

The Brothers Of Redemption

I wrote the above book. It's the first of a two-volume set. Since it takes place in the future, I would be forced to call it "dystopian futuristic," yet it's nothing like other books of that genre. It has no science fiction, no fancy gadgets, no butt-kicking babes who take on six-foot men, only a few dirty words, no sex (at least none in this volume, the second does), and is about two brothers who have screwed up royally and in their middle age, get a chance to do a Good Thing, and they do it...

Is there a Send to Kindle plugin?

I have used Calibre for many years and one of the most useful plugins for me would be a means to Send to Kindle. This would save a lot of time hunting thru the calibre library.

How to tag books

Hi all, I am new to Calibre, having installed it on 31st Dec. This went satisfactorily and I have imported about 250 books, which are all visible. On 4th Jan., I upgraded to the latest version (3.37) and all is satisfactory. I am running Calibre on 64-bit LinuxMint, ver: 17.3. So far as I can tell, everything is working correctly. Now, I want to classify my books into about 50 categories (subjects), each at top-level only. I do not need sub-categories although I could switch this on against po...

Marie Kondo in the Garden, and Life

I couldn’t agree more with what this Washington Post reviewer wrote about Marie Kondo’s approach to “tidying up” in her new show on Netflix. Unlike her TV predecessors, Kondo brings a calming influence to the surroundings — even asking the owners if she may take a moment to kneel in a particular spot and silently greet their homes. This is a noble and overdue concept for the home makeover and real estate genre — a chance to express gratitude for any home, rather than the perfect home....

[MacOS] update to 3.37.0 problems

Anthurium no. 1409 "Ramona West"

From time to time, a seedling will do a little fake-out, making me think that I'm getting one kind of bloom and then actually delivering another. 0330 Faye Quinette was one of the first of these, producing a brown bud that became an orange spathe, and 1731 Robyn Millyonz was another (green bud became a beigey spathe), and now we have Ramona. This was the bud: And here's what I got: (And just [Author: mr_subjunctive]

DEEP WAR by David Poyer – Review

Opinion DEEP WAR by David Poyer USA –  -(AmmoLand.com)- My first David Poyer book was Hunter Killer. I spotted it at my local library, and the jacket cover depicted a naval conflict with current stealth aircraft flying over the fleet. That book pretty much scared the heck out of me. So, I found the book Onslaught that was written just before Hunter Killer, wanting to get a better grasp of the main characters. The author of these books is Captain David Poyer, US Navy retired. He is a Navy Aca...

Aura One Special Edition - Green Light

Hey all, Long time lurker on the forums, lots of good details helping me decide on what readers to get. After using various Kindles for several years, I decided to give Kobo a try, and purchased a Aura One Special edition in December of 2017. I have enjoyed using it over the post year, although there were some small issues with screen uniformity, I was resigned that nothing was perfect. However, over the past few days the screen has been flickering, and now it has turned a solid green. Kobo sup...

Warmth

S pooky , the warmth of this winter so far. If it wasn't raining, I'd be sitting outside. Still the kitchen, which we don't heat except by cooking, is cold in the morning. I heat the coffee cup before the coffee goes in. Pottery is so chilly before dawn. Again. Arising From an Inner Warmth . It just seems like that's true about just everything lately. Whether we like it or not. I did remove the password requirements on Feel Free yesterday. I feel good about that.  And added...

Custom Tags Disappearing

Hello! I spent a ton of time categorizing my library with custom tags but every time I update Calibre they revert to the downloaded metadata tags. To change/edit the tags I'm double clicking in the 'tag' column and typing my own. Am I doing it wrong? Is there a trick to getting tags to save? Do the tags always revert with updates and I should give up on organizing via tags? I searched the documentation and forums but I couldn't find an answer. Any help appreciated!

At least three people are reported dead after a gunman opened fire in a California bowling alley late Friday night. The Torrance Police Department says in a tweet there were "reports of shots fired with multiple victims down" at Gable House Bowl. The police department later confirmed there are 3 dead and 4 injured following the shooting which reportedly sprung from an argument in the bowling alley. Police are urging people to "stay away from the area" near the bowling alley. CNN has more detail...
