english india newspaper when convert from mobi to azw3 disfunction ToC

I have kindle basic and ilike to read newspaper fetched by calibre. But the problem is that default input set by calibre to fetch newspaper is .mobi which does not support custom fonts in Kindle device. So i convert the newspapers from .mobi to .azw3 and transfer the files to Kindle using usb. Then AZW3 files of newspaper not shows ToC as of .mobi format . So can there any way i get same ToC output in azw3 as .mobi ? or Can there any way .mobi support custom fonts in kindle device? thanks :...

book covers blank

i have been using Calibre and not having difficulties with my Kobo Glo and Aura One until my last 15 or so downloads, none of which show the cover art on the thumbnails- they are all blank with titles only. selecting a book will display the cover art on full page but the thumbnail will remain blank - any thoughts? Most often, these are books from eBook.bike but some have come from LibGen. My Kobos now have about 800 books on them- could this be the problem?

Can't convert book to ANY format or send to device

I'm having so much trouble at the moment trying to send a book to my kobo touch device. I must have broken something because if I try to transfer a normal epub file (which transferred in the past) I get a no suitable formats found error Also when I try to send a specific format to a device, the file type window is completely empty? I'd like to remove calibre and start again. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling calibre and deleting the calibre registry key in regedit, but whenever I install ...

Reckless Daughter - A Portrait of Joni Mitchell ~ David Yaffe

My love for all things Joni has been well-documented on here down the years so I couldn't think how on earth I had missed Reckless Daughter - A Portrait of Joni Mitchell by David Yaffe, published in October 2017,  And then I knew exactly how, because I had been here with my lovely and completely un-reckless but very adventurous daughter... I had spent October 2017 in New Zealand with Offspringette, and missed all the articles and publicity. By the time I arrived home it was all about Philip ...

Weekend Reading

Greetings from Down Under! I’ve been having such a fun time with my brother in Australia, I spent a few days in Sydney and now I’m in Burleigh in Queensland, visiting with my expat cousins. Today we’re vising a wildlife sanctuary then will hang out with Aussie friends watching the Superbowl, it’s becoming a thing here now! The thing I love about coming to Australia (this is my third visit) is meeing the people (always so kind) and discussing the similarities and differences between our countries...

DX(G) Wireless drivers for DX.

I gave installing 3.2.1 a go on a DX taking the ill advised rout of installing a binary I got from the net. There were a couple of issues so I decided to recover and discovered I'd forgotten to copy the recovery files and lost them. I also have a DXG so I made a recovery image from that and have restored my DX. I've since installed the top 6 or so hacks plus duokan on it and all seems to be well except for the fact that wireless doesn't work. I don't use the kindle site so it's not much of an...

Best ereader screen

Greetings all, long time forum lurker but I registered to ask your advice. I've got a kindle 3 keyboard, of which i've thoroughly modded with the help of all the advice on here, i'm just wondering if its time for an upgrade. My requirements aren't that tough, as I don't really care about total storage and calibre usually ends up converting anyway so format doesn't matter. (I don't read PDFs / mangas / comics on eink, the tablet is for that. Purely text reading, from fiction / fantasy books.) T...

Series Count for Omnibus's

Is there a way to include multiple counts in a series for a collection (omnibus)? For example: if I have an omnibus of books 5, 6 and 7 of the John Doe series, can I somehow show that in Calibre? Currently, I would just mark it number 5 in the series, then have a gap until #8. It would be nice to mark that entry as John Doe [5-7].

Kindle 8th generation first charge

I have bought a kindle 8th generation and I plugged it into my USB and started using it immediately. I didn't wait until it was fully charged. Then I left it to finish charging and when the light was green I unplugged it and the battery was on 99%. It's been 24 hours and it's now on 88%. Was the battery damaged anyhow? Is it normal or is it draining too fast? Thanks in advance.
