"Calibre puts the ease into e-readers"

When I bought my kindle I was disappointed to discover that all of the ebooks I had bought from elsewhere for my android tablet were not going to transfer easily. I mucked around with a couple of other file conversion programs before I disovered Calibre.

Not only does it convert files to other formats but it also manages my Kindle while it manages my ridiculously large e-library. All I have to do is select all of the books I want to add then click 'Add to device' and it's done in seconds.

I love the feature that finds and adds publication details and summaries to the side panel. This is great for those times I get a little too download happy at The Guttenburg project and forgotten what some of the books were about.

Calibre is also great for adding PDFs and other documents to the kindle. It's wonderfu lthat such a useful program is still free. Thankyou to Calibre's wonderful and thoughtful creator.

Pros
  • Easy enough to use that I have been able to teach my technophobic parents to use it. Made it possible for them to get their own Kindles.
  • Convertsto multiple formats and keeps the original format. Buy ebooks from anywhere; raid The Guttenburg Project and move the files to any format you need.
  • Converts bulk lots- I've seen it convet a folder containing a thousand books.
Cons
  • Still haven't found any cons.
