Is there any point in converting an EPUB file to MOBI before uploading to the Kindle Store? An EPUB is accepted. You get an online or downloadable preview. Am I missing anything?

importing a list of identifiers

Now I know this uses the import list plugin, but the question is about the columns and the Calibry catalog .csv export What column could I import the "identifiers" column from the catalog export? The one with all the identifiers, and not the individual ones. Would I have to create the composite column "identifiers" and then import it?, or is there another way?

The Lake House: A 2020 Update

If there’s a satisfying update to be had this year, it’s most likely because my mom has been making a lot of progress updating the Lake House, almost entirely without my help. I did build the deck stairs, and one time wedged myself through this tiny hole to fix a broken hose spigot…   1.) Yes, that bigass boulder is a part of the Lake House foundation. And, 2.) I legit dragged my mom’s hair dryer through that hole with me… if you’re ever having a hard time loosening a threaded copper fitti...

The most desirable rare book of 2020 – A Wonderful Time by Slim Aarons

The most desirable rare book of 2020 is pure escapism. A Wonderful Time by Slim Aarons is an out-of-print photo-book from 1974 that revealed the sumptuous lifestyles of America’s elite society in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Before 2020, it was possible to purchase copies for less than $200. This year, copies have been selling for thousands of dollars via AbeBooks. Aarons (1916-2006) specialized in photographing America’s socialites and jet-setters decades before we discovered the Ka...

Radian Mod 1 | How Accurate? How Far?

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- There is no denying it, the Radian Model 1 is an extremely impressive AR. You know what makes an AR really great, when it comes straight down to it, it is the feeling that it gives the shooter. It’s when you’re using an AR that performs extremely well; when you’re easily hitting every target because of its remarkable accuracy; when everything feels just right because the ergonomics have been very well placed and very well thought out; and when the recoil is so smooth ...

Qualified Immunity and Special Privileges Drive Wedge Between Gun Owners and Police

Who thinks “America’s cherished gun rights” will be high on these guys’ priority list should they catch you bearing arms prohibitionist politicians say you can’t have? (ATF/Facebook) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “When cops and America’s cherished gun rights clash, cops win,” Reuters reports. A police officer raiding the wrong apartment while searching for a suspect was deemed “legally justified to use deadly force” on a resident who, startled by pounding on his door at 1:30 a.m., answered with a...

10 Fantasy Tropes That Are Quite Magical (and 5 That Deserve the Chopping Block)

There’s a reason fantasy has existed for thousands of years. It could be the story of a princess kissing a frog, a fairy hiding in the trees, or a magical lotus lantern. These are stories that have filled our hearts and homes for generations. Many of them tend to use the same storytelling tropes, but that’s because…Read more...

POTD: Royal Marines Snipers with L115A3 Long Range Rifle

Photo Of The Day – We look at what we think is a Royal Marines sniper with his L115A3 Long Range Rifle on Dartmoor’s training area. It seems there is quite a lot of undergrowth on this range, a perfect place to hide for a sniper.

Sync devices

Hi there, I have Calibre installed in two devices. I would like to keep both libraries in the two devices sync'ed, so that when I add a book to one, it'll appear in the other, so I know what books I have added in any of the two devices. I have used Syncthing to synchronize the Calibre Library folder, but the metadata since to be updated only when I actually drop a file on the program's interface, so it doesn't seem to work. How can I do this better? How can I sync, not the files in the libr...

How to put chapter title in two places in the index

I have a simple book that uses the normal tags for the chapter titles. I marked the chapter title text for the index and it shows up in the index fine. Now I want to put the same chapter into the index using a different entry. Since the chapter title is already marked for the index once, I tried adding a search to the Index Editor where the "Text to include" is the text in the chapter title, and the "Index entry" is the new keyword I would like to add to the index. The new entry does not appe...

Nook app for Windows suddenly can't download books

Is anyone else having this problem? Just a week or two ago, I suddenly couldn't download in my Nook Windows app--new purchases or old. On two different computers. Customer service killed 45 minutes on the question and couldn't help. Said it was likely a result of the recent updates and fixes from the October debacle. (They didn't use that word.) Fortunately, I have most of my Nook library dedrm'd and saved in Calibre, so this only affects my newest purchases. But I wondered if it was just me...

Houston Lawsuit Claims Gun Signage Requirements Violate First Amendment Rights

Image courtesy Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Evrerytownlaw, the Bloomberg financed anti-right to arms group, is involved in a convoluted lawsuit filed in Houston, Texas. Texas statutes prescribe signs be posted on businesses if the presence of a person who is armed, in the business, is presumed to be trespassing. This is not unusual. The regulation of signs to give effective notice, especially in licensed businesses, is common.  Posting of business licenses, for example, is often r...

Miss Disneyland’s Dole Whip? This ‘unofficial’ cookbook has the recipes you need

She grew up in Anaheim so close to the park that she fell asleep to the sound of the fireworks each night. Eventually she ended up working at Disney World. Ashley Craft always loved all things Disney, so when she began to write a blog, naturally she gravitated in that direction. “I started it in 2017 and basically I was just looking for an outlet to share different Disney information that I had, whether that’s planning ideas or tricks and tips that I had, fun facts and trivia or recipes.

Finding books by metadata

I put my books in folders manually on my Kobo Clara HD without having Calibre do the synching. I see how I can find books by filename or Calibre metadata, but how could I find them with the metadata already stored in the files? All of the files have titles, subtitles, authors, descriptions, but the "find" functions on Koreader seem to ignore that, unless Calibre wrote that information on the device. Does anyone have a (simple) solution for finding and sorting books easily by the embedded book m...
