I'm starting my own website for free ebooks

Hey guys, It's been an idea of mine for quite some time. I've been doing web and writing marketing copy for a couple of years now and I wanted to build my own heaven for free ebooks. It's still small, but for sure I'll be adding titles from here. Let me share a title I couldn't find here Nabokov's Lolita. Like most people I love it and hate it and firmly believe the true monster of the story is Lolita herself. It would be thrilling if I get to see your thoughts on my website. Happy reading!

Internal graphic wider than cover graphic. Why?

In GIMP I created a cover jpeg, and three other jpegs, saved them, inserted them in LibreOffice Writer, saved the file as html, then fed into Calibre. Here are the sizes of the initial jpegs, and the final sizes in the Calibre eBook. (Laptop screen: 1366 pix wide, 100ppi.) 1) 1700 pix wide (100ppi) ----- 3.35” on screen (335 laptop pixels) 2) 350 pix wide (100ppi) ----- 3.3” on screen (330 laptop pixels) 3) 700 pix wide (100ppi) ----- 6.3” on screen (630 laptop pixels) 4) 700 pix wide (200pp...

How do I send to my Kindle

Hi, Just joined the forum page. I have just redownloaded calibre because I was not having success sending my calibre books - downloaded into MOBI and on my calibre library to my kindle. Now I can't find the "send" button at all on the 4.23 version of Calibre. Help please. Maybe I should uninstall calibre and begin from the beginning? Thanks for any tips. LynneT

Hi to everybody. I am German, old (75) and bold. I used to be a banker, however, still playing the markets and hence, interested in economics, politics and technology. I am looking forward to meeting new friends here in the forums but I am a bit nervous as I do not understand the underlying system properly. Will see how it works.

I've posted my info in the Kindle section. Altho...

Lost My Book Details

I was messing around and somehow closed my "Book Details Pane". Now all I see are the columns. I have looked everywhere and right clicked everywhere. I can not for the life of me figure out how to get my Book Details pane back. Can anyone help me ??? I really liked seeing the cover and the short synopsis of the book. Thanks to anyone who can help get me straightened out again. Jenn
