I don’t think librarians get enough credit. Without them your local library would be a disaster area. You would have a hard time finding the books you want. And that isn’t even their entire job.
Likewise, if you have a ton of e-books your computer could be a digital disaster area! E-books can come in many formats and use obscure file names.
Trying to keep track of them using regular Windows folders is a pain. Why not try a free, simple program like Calibre?
Calibre is a tool for organizing and updating your e-book library. It has a clean, user-friendly interface and a ton of helpful features.
On the download page, click the blue “Download Calibre” button to get started. Select your operating system or the portable, USB version. Be aware that some security programs flag portable programs as potential viruses. Don’t worry; this program is safe.
You can click the picture of the computer on the home page to watch a very helpful video tutorial.
Calibre is very helpful for loading books onto your e-reader as well. It can communicate with almost any make or model of e-reader.
On top of that, it converts your books to virtually any format. You can customize each book’s cover and data automatically by syncing with online booksellers.
Downloading magazines and newspapers is easy to schedule using Calibre. You’ll also be able to buy new e-books. Calibre compares prices from most of the major e-book sites.
