How do I get rid of this pop-up?

I looked up a word and this window pop-up came up but now I cannot get rid of it. Am I dumb? Most likely. Hopefully, this is stupid simple and someone can help me. * EDIT * Calibre 5.7.2 64-Bit Windows Attached Thumbnails

Short Fiction Montanye, C S: This Murder's On Me (and other stories); v1; 17 Dec 2020

Thirty-three short stories and novelettes by prolific 1920s-1930s-1940s pulp writer Charles Stevens Montanye. He wrote for virtually every pulp genre including romance, but the bulk of his output was aimed at titles such as "Thrilling Detective" and "Black Mask". Like all but a few pulp writers he had several series running: Jim McLain, homicide cop; Johnny Castle, reporter; "A Broadway Decamaron Nights", and others.

MathJax and ePub book

I needed to change some math formulas originally done as jpgs and inserted as images into a book. I used to convert to svg using https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php but from what I read the Calibre MathJax seemed a little cleaner I tried to follow the manual and used the test document there https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/typesetting_math.html The editor viewer shows the math symbols, but the ePub with ADE just shows the 'math code' Does the MathJax only work within the Calibre ...

Winter interest revisited

Every year about this time, or maybe later, I brashly state my lack of interest in winter interest, at least as far as my own garden goes. That’s still true. After I get the bulbs in, the pots covered, and whatever shrubs need it protected, I am done. I can’t even feed birds this winter because nearby construction has stirred up critters I’d rather not see (or feed). Birds still hang out in the garden all day long; I have no idea why. It could be they’re managing to drink through the pond nettin...

Moon+ reader on boox nova 3

My understanding is that u can put the Google play store on the boox nova 3 eink reader. Has anyone used moon+ reader on it? If so how does it run? All the features working? Moon+ seems to be the only reader I've found that has a library view which puts part of the book description right there without having to go clicking each book, which I find totally logical but I guess reader designers don't 😠 which is why I want to keep using that app.
