Changing the page progression direction from rtl to ltr for multiple epubs

Hello dears, I have over 700 ePubs version 2 in Arabic, and the books open from right to left. I want them to open from left to right, because the reader I use (SkyEpub) creates a white page after every each chapter on iOS if it is rtl, and I do not want this issue to occur, so I change it on caliber editor to be ltr from package.opf file by changing: to: and the problem is solved. But my question: is there a way to do this automatically for all the 700 eBooks through bulk conversion? I ...

Hello, Hello!

Hi everyone, :bigwave: I live in Huntsville, Alabama. I love to read and listen to audiobooks.

Hello! Dawn Lawson here.

Sometimes known as Pain in the Ass. I'm thinking you guys might be a miracle. I wrote a book. My editor and I have been reworking it for over a year. I want to release by May 1st. This entire time, I have been dutifully studying how to publish on Amazon. Everything I have ever seen about e publishing talks about Amazon. Kindle is my Life Partner. I just found out that, not only are they not the only game in town, if I use their tools exclusively, I won't be able to sell my book on my own website...

How to download?

Hi to all. I am a complete newby to e Readers and have been told by friends to use Calibre. I have now got that program and tried to purchase my first book. Calibre directed me to Walmart as the only supplier of the book that I wanted so I made the purchase. I received an email back with a receipt but I am unable to work out how to download the thing to Calibre. I have a Kindle Paperwhite but want to put my books into Calibre. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Regards

I'm new here... and a little shy, but I'll eventually get over it.

I first heard about this site through past YouTube videos that linked to tutorials here, and now that I've started what I call my third phase in e-books, I decided to actually join. First phase: Apple Books and (tried) Kobo on iPad (gen 1) - some time in 2010/2011 Second phase: Kindle on Kindle Paperwhite (2012 model) - late 2013 to some time in 2015/2016 Third phase: Built-in reader (primarily PDFs via Calibre) and Kindle (plus many other services, but those are the primary ones I use) on Li...
