Forma Almost ready to give up entirely on Forma

Before launching in let me try a question first: Is there any known way to download a just-purchased book from the Kobo book site to one's computer, as an .epub file? Now on to the rest... I'm all but ready to give up on this Kobo Forma. It wasn't cheap, it is often failing, and I'm at my wit's end. Perhaps someone who has experienced the same kinds of problems will know what to do. Despite our having a pretty fast net connection and good wifi connectivity in this house, the Kobo rarely gets m...

Walther PPQ M2 Pistol in 45ACP – Range Report & Gun Review

Mike Searson, takes the Walther PPQ M2 Pistol in 45 ACP to the range and comes back very happy. Walther PPQ M2 Pistol Front Slide Serrations USA –  -(Ammoland.com)- When I think of Walthers, I think of James Bond. Whether it was the Walther PPK in 7.65mm, the PPK in 380, P99 in 9mm or even the WA2000 Sniper rifle; whenever I see that Walther banner logo, I think of 007. I have yet to meet a shooter that purchased a Walther PPK that did not do so on account of watching a James Bond movie or...

The Elf Gate series by Melody Daggerhart

I don't usually give book recommendations, because, well, tastes differ. But Melody Daggerhart is a self-published author whose work I recently discovered and I feel she deserves a word of praise, as she seems not to be well known. The Elf Gate series (6 books so far, of which the last one came out in December) is epic fantasy. It's available from Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords (perhaps elsewhere too, but I didn't check). While the covers (drawn by the author herself) are, to put it mildly, not ver...

ePub to kePub conversion

Hello, I use a Kobo Clara HD and exported all my books to it via Calibre In Calibre I specified ˋSeries´ (Aersospace, Physics, History etc.) so that the big collection is easily manageable. When merged this metadata into the epub using ˋP´ (forgot what the window is called). When I upload the epubs to my Kobo reader all Series are visible, and the same as in Calibre, but with ePubs you can not zoom in on pictures. To overcome this issue I converted all the files to the .kepub format. Now I ...

Importing library from BookCollector (Collectorz.com)

I've got details of ~1000 books sitting in a text file from the BookCollector programme. I want to bring all 1000 books into Calibre, with a minimum of re-keying. I can see how to import the bare detail (author / title / publisher) into Calibre using the Import List plugin. My issue is: how can I interpret the subject headings I've allocated in BookCollector as separate tags in Calibre? E.g. I've got a book with BookCollector subjects: History / England / Regency. In the text / .csv file, ...

Is there a way to sync (with say, syncthing) all settings, and history across devices

I read on my samsung s6 tablet, my kindle paperwhite and occasionally my ubuntu laptop. I use syncthing to keep the document folder completely in sync. I've noticed when I open a new book on one device, and then decide I want to read it on another, I have to re-open it on each device to get it to show up in history. I prefer using History view to quickly jump between books. Is there anyway to set up syncthing to sync the history/koreader settings between devices? Which files/folders would...

InkPad 3: Cannot write to internal memory or SD

Hello It is no longer possible to write to the internal memory or SD-card of my InkPad 3 through PC/USB. When I try to transfer a file, it gets stuck on 'calculating'.

Weekend Reading 1.10.21

The best thing I read today was “what a long year this week has been”…. it made me laugh. Woah what a surreal week with everything that happened at the Capitol. I’m still shocked by what happened and closely following that story. We’re still hunkered down here in California, and the latest decision is the local lockdowns remain in place until February due to rising virus cases. I am trying to stay positive in these challenging times, and I am just hoping by spring thing start to improve. The one...

SHOULD I DEADHEAD FRITILLARIA?

   Should I deadhead Fritillaria As far as ornamental flowering corms and bulbs go, Fritillaria species have to be rated amongst the best. At least they are in my opinion. However as gorgeous and structural as they are they can also be expensive and so most gardeners like to cultivate them to the highest quality standards. With this in mind the question of whether you should deadhead Fritillaria often comes up. But first, why should you even ask?If you are hoping to encourage further b...
