Add new cover without deleting older cover

I apologize if this has been addressed here before but I haven't been able to find anything about it. There have been a few books that I've downloaded that are missing their covers and the interior title page serves as its cover. I've downloaded the cover that I want to use from the internet but if I try to add that while editing metadata, it will delete the title page, which I don't want to do. I want both the proper cover and the title page. How on earth do I go about doing this? Layman's te...

Chuck's Reviews Transformers Cyberverse Ultra Class Thunderhowl

hunderhowl is a really cool figure. Articulation is good, better than most Ultra Class figures and the transformation is surprisingly involved for a kid friendly figure. I really like the play between the sword, wolf head, and tail.

S&W PC 4in Optics-Ready Shield M 2.0: Budget Custom Performance

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a Smith and Wesson fanboy. I try to be upfront with who I am because I think you are smart people and will figure it out anyway. Besides that, I personally despise pretense. If you haven’t read my earlier articles… The first handgun I fired as a boy was my Dad’s Smith & Wesson .357 – It was equal parts respect and love at first blast! My loyalty is tied both to my heritage and my long-term-experience, but it isn’t blind loyalty. There aren...

Does Anyone Have both a Forma and a Libra?

I've read through the Libra review thread, but I'm particularly interested in comparisons folks have between the two readers for those who have both. My Forma recently stopped holding a charge well (I reset and everything else -- none worked -- sadly, I think I "overtested" the waterproofing) and I'm debating between replacing it with the same device or switching to the Libra. I have totally loved my Forma, but I'm tempted by the smaller footprint and the power button placement of the Libra, wh...

All the Megapixels?

Only a dozen megapixels there. Many years ago, when the talk of the town was the D810, I remember several of my Nikon-shooting friends at first excited to grab one, and then a few months later lamenting their choice. For example, a friend of mine works for Getty and is responsible for shooting celebrities and events in New York. At 36 megapixels in 2013, he found himself with way too many images that were far too large, which complicated his media storage and seriously slowed down his wor...

Images Pasted in Comments from Web No Longer Visible

I copy and paste reviews from various online sources (Kirkus, NYT, NYR, Shelf Awareness...) in a book’s comment section. With Calibre 4.x all images included in these reviews became a grey thumbnail ranging in size from tiny to overwhelming. Any idea if this is fixable or if at least or if there is a way to paste only a text while excluding the images? Or even just batch delete all grey thumbnails? Many thanks, Madeleine Attached Thumbnails
