Free Kindle ebook at Amazon>>>>Calibre - the E-Book Tool - First Steps, Tips & Tricks

I've stumbled along for several years using Calibre and finally here's a guide that's been created!

I haven't read it yet but I'm looking forward to learning about all the neat things that I've probably been missing.

I don't have a Kindle nor do I want to sit and read it from my computer.  I opened the PC Kindle app on my computer and downloaded the ebook to my PC.  I then added the book to my Calibre library and converted it to ePub and PDF.  I just finished printing it out and now have a hardcopy which I can read and highlight and I've also put it on my Nook!

This is great Jeanette!  I'm like you - been feeling my way around and making it work somehow.  Looking forward to converting this to my NOOK!

I've downloaded it too, but do remember that the reviewer says that the harder subjects in the book still just point to the on-line Caliber documentation.

For the easier stuff, I think it'll be a help. But for the harder subject, we'll all still have to go on-line and look things up. And Calibre gets updated a lot. So I don't know how long the ebook will be useful.

You can always ask things here, and at MobileRead, though. I find searching the web site less than helpful, unfortunatly.

Dear Author has a good article on customizing Calibre. I added a column to sort by books I've read (or not) based on their directions. All of DA's eBook articles are indexed in a separate tab.
