Cool Reader Forgetting Current Book

Decided to get back into Cool Reader after a rough spot using it with Calibre Companion. Now, if I tell Calibre Companion to start reading a book using Cool Reader, it opens fine, but if I reboot the device (Fire Tablet) and restart Cool Reader, it not only doesn't open the book, it doesn't even appear on the Recent Book list. Other ebook apps (FBReader, Pocketbook Reader) handle a reboot fine, and when opened, return to the page that was last read. This happens on both mine and my wife's Fi...

Downgrading Calibre

I have been sticking with the current release of Calibre to this point, but I now am finding that a critical plugin does not work with this release at present. The creator of the plugin says to "stick with Calibre 4.23" for now. I am running 5.50 at this point. Is there a way to run a plugin that works with 4.23, perhaps from the linux terminal window, that will not work in 5.50 itself? If not, how do I downgrade safely to 4.23 until such time as this plugin is updated to work with Calibe 5....

Soup is comfort food in winter, and I’ve made this simple vegetable bean soup twice in the last two weeks.
