Comprehensive management for e-book librariesCalibre is the perfect software choice for cataloging all of your eBooks. Regardless of whether you need library management, format conversion, or you’d like to convert your newsfeeds into eBooks, Calibre is exactly the program you need.
Once the eBooks are in your library, you can sort them by date, title, author, publisher or rating making it easy to find exactly the book you’re looking for every time. This freeware also supports searchable metadata fields such as comments, tags, and series. The series function helps you find a book by the series it belongs to, the tags function allows you to categorize your books by tags that you insert, and the comments function allows you to describe the book and add comments on it. If you don’t want to insert your own metadata, you can fetch it simply by using your books ISBN number. You can also fetch the cover for your books this way. You can easily search your library by the metadata if you use the advanced search settings.
HTML, LIT, RTF, TXT, and PDF files are all easily converted to the Sony eBook reader format LRF with the Calibre software. You can easily access this function by simply clicking or touching the “Convert E-books” button. This software also has a modular device driver that’s designed to make adding different eReaders simple (right now it supports the Sony PRS 500/505). If your eBook has more than one format available, the software will immediately choose the best one for you when it uploads to your device.
If you’re more about news than books, Calibre can fetch from your favourite feeds and convert them into eBooks for you to read easily. Presently, Newsweek, The New York Times, The BBC, and The Economist are all supported.
If you love books or news, this is definitely the free download for you.
