How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series

Here’s the method I use for ordering the sequence of books in a series. By the way, I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THIS. LuvMyBrats on the kindleboards provided this answer.

You have 4 books you want to put into a collection in order so you don’t have to constantly look up which book is next.

In Calibre, Edit the Metadata button and change the date the book was published. The first book in the series should have the most recent date. I also add numbers to the title. It looks like this.

Book A (#1) – Aug 2010 (make this your starting date) – oldest book
Book B (#2) – July 2010
Book C (#3) – June 2010
Book D (#4) – May 2010 (last book in the series ends up the earliest date)

When you add these books to your collection, they will line up in the correct order #1-#4

You don’t have to add the numbers to the title. Personal choice, I like to see them with the numbers.

Also I don’t change the publishing date until AFTER I have downloaded the metadata because if you change publishing dates before, when you download the metadata it will put the correct publishing date and you have done a lot of work for nothing.

A little work involved but at the end of the day I have a series in order and I automatically know which book comes next. Given that most of what I read is series, this method has become invaluable to me because all of my collections with the exception of History and Single Novels are ALL serial books.

Good luck and perhaps someone will have a shorter method. It really doesn’t take that long once you get use to it.

Is there a best practice for naming books that come in a series? What is the best practice keeping things straight?

Dilemma #1: The book publication dates don’t match the Chronological order of the action in the story.

Dilemma #2: It sure would be nice to be able to view the books in chronological order (of the action within the series) on my storage device (in my case a Kindle) Note: I am using Calibre for managing my storage.

Example, the Jack Reacher series from author Lee Childs, sorted alphabetical by title:

  • 61 Hours (Jack Reacher Chron Order #15)
  • The Affair (Jack Reacher Chron Order #2)
  • Bad Luck and Trouble (Jack Reacher Chron Order #12)
  • Die Trying (Jack Reacher Chron Order #4)
  • Echo Burning (Jack Reacher Chron Order #7)

( etc. There are more than 20 books in this series. ) This just feels clumsy.

What is the best practice for file / title naming scheme here? Is there a “standard” here? What does everybody else do? Is there a way to easily display all the books in a series in the chronological order of the action within?

1 Answer 1

If you are using Calibre, its database is already set to have each piece of information about a book in its proper field (i.e., there will be a field for the title, another for the author, another one for the series and series numbering, and so on), but I’m sure that you already know this.

So, within Calibre, you don’t need (and you are not supposed) to change the title by including the series information; you can let Calibre rename those files on-the-fly when you export them to a given ereader by using its tool called Plugboard, that relies on the calibre template language.

Here is, in short, the recipe to use, pasted from MobileRead forums:

I have been playing around with the Metadata plugboards to get the titles on a Kindle 3 to show series information. I used the following template:

format: mobi
device: kindle2
template: 2s| – | – > <br />destination: title</p> <p>This works very nicely for books that are part of a series e.g.:</p> <p>A Song of Ice & Fire – 01 – A Game of Thrones <br />A Song of Ice & Fire – 02 – A Clash of Kings <br />A Song of Ice & Fire – 03 – A Storm of Swords <br />A Song of Ice & Fire – 04 – A Feast for Crows</p> </blockquote> <p>The process is very easy to do but if you are not used to its workings it is a bit long to explain, so I’m linking some of articles that show you step by step how to do it.</p> </p> <p>I own a Voyage and spent a while sorting my ebooks in Calibre, which included adding the series and number plus the release date to each one, only to get disappointed because you can't export the series as collections without jailbreaking your Kindle (<em>cough</em>).</p> <p>That's why I went through all the ebooks on the Voyage itself and added them to collections but I noticed that they aren't sorted in the proper order.</p> <p>Chamber of Secrets</p> <p>Prisoner of Azkaban</p> <p>Chamber of Secrets</p> <p>Prisoner of Azkaban</p> <p>I already found this post but it's 2 years old and I'm not especially fond of adding the number to the actual title since it'll also mess up the way the ebooks are sorted outside of collections. Is there maybe a better way of doing it (without adding the numbers to the titles or a jailbreak) by now?</p> </p> <p>Nope, not that I know of. Personally, I stick the number in the title and automatically sort them into collections (jailbroken), which works fine for me.</p> <p>Damn! Why does Amazon not at least let us sort by year?! So it's either have the right order but mess up the overall sorting or the right overall sorting but the wrong order for series. :/</p> <p>I don't know if this appeals to you, but Calibre has a plugin that I use (can't remember the name, but I believe it's stock). When you move items from your library to your Kindle, it adds the series and number, based on the metadata.</p> <p>Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately I don't want to/can't do it this way because I have a couple of series with quite long names, which would make the actual titles (some of which are also pretty long) get cut off.</p> <p>The problem is that I still want the overall list of my ebooks to be sorted by the actual book title – so "Chamber of Secrets", not "01 – Chamber of Secrets" or "Harry Potter – 01 – Chamber of Secrets" because if I'm looking for a book of a series, I can just check the collections I created by hand – but I also want it to be sorted properly within a collection I created for a single series.</p> <p><img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/windows-enterprise-product-36CAD.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="300" height="300" class=""/> </p> <p>The Windows 10 Enterprise product is absolutely official product code.</p> <ul> <li>Activate Windows 10 Enterprise version and support Microsoft Online Update.</li> <li>Work for all languages version.</li> <li>One Windows 10 Enterprise key works constantly on one PC.</li> <li>Lastingly useful to reinstall the OS or Application Software program.</li> <li>Not for OEM, Trial, Beta and Non-Genuine Version.</li> </ul> <p>Product Name: <strong>Windows 10 Enterprise</strong> <br />Product Type: <strong>Key Code and Download Link</strong> <br />Special Sale: $75.99 <s>$399.99</s></p> <p>Windows 10 Enterprise product key sale is guaranteed to be 120% official, valid, unused and non-banned.

Click Title, then Series, then Author. Then use Bulk Edit Metadata to populate your custom column with a Collection name and to number them in order.</p> <p>Then you have to go into the Sony Plugin and tell it to create collections based on your custom column.</p> <p>BTW, why do you want the books in a series in Title order rather than Series Order?</p> </p> <p>..but all I get is the default. I must be doing something wrong!</p> <p>I haven’t really thought out the nicest way to sort the books on the Sony PRS T1. (nice, but very slow compared to my Androd phone), but I’d like to sort by series and then just wad through, one at a time. Well, maybe a couple of series in parallel LOL.</p> <p>I’d like to have the books sorted on the Sony like <br />series series_number: title (author)</p> <p>A bit wored but I read some series written by a bunch of different authors, sometimes an outhor takes over a series, somtimes co-authors pop up. So to get the flow of the timeline, I use Calibre series field to tags them in timeline order. I’m not too bothered about how they present, but it would be nice to know a book is book n in a series.</p> <p>As well as help on how to correctly set the plugin, can someone tell me the steps from the beginning as to what to do in case I’m missing something.</p> <p>At the moment, I’m going to Preferences > ASdvanced > Plugins > Device Interface Plugins > Sony PRST1 and newer devices. Am I missing something?</p> </p> <p>Thanks for that Helen, but like some other members; I have been reading these forums for a while and have done many searches and am still at a loss here. Perhaps manyu of the posts are making assumptions that new people like myself don’t share or perhsps it’s something earlier in a thread missed or archived. So, please be patient and thropw a few breadcrumbs here as what I’ve tried isn’t working and I’m looking for guidance.</p> <p>1) I’d surely try the Tweak ..if I knw where it was and how to try it.<br />2) I gotta admit, I have yet to read the Sony book on how to sort the collections <br />I’m sure it’s in there somewhere :-). It seems to be sorting OK with the few runs <br />that I’ve done, it’s just that I’d like them labelled with series numbers on the Sony <br />screen.<br />3) Could you perhaps throw me a like to the correct forum (and perhaps page number) <br />whereupon idiot-proof guidance can be gained?</p> </p> <p>I am new to eReading so there may be an easier way to do this, but I edited the Meta Data and put the number of the series IN the title like this:</p> <p>The Murder at the Vicarage (01)</p> <p>Now, when I look at my list of books on my Sony, I can see at a glance it is #1 in a series. I could also edit the title so it displays like this:</p> <p>Miss Marple 01 – The Murder at the Vicarage</p> <p>although that would make some titles quite long. I understand that the series name/number is redundant when viewing my books in Calibre since I have the series and number fields set up in the Meta Data. But this was a quick and easy way to get what I wanted to show up on my Sony. There is probably a more elegant solution, but this works for me. I hope this helps.</p> </p> <p>Hi Elise, thanks for that. It’s a last resort option as I have a number of series in double digists and some series pushing that! Hence the use of the [series] field in Calibre is a nicety that allows me to add books to series just by using a dropdown and it’s automatically sequenced. Books in the series I just re number as 0 or whatever according to timeline fit. I’d like to title books as you say, but have Calibre do the fiddling for me, as numbering the titles is a bit of a chore, especially as I’d need to be creative with those sub-series, i.e. seried within a series where I DO use the title.</p> <p>I bought the Sony reader rather than the tablet for just this purpose, as it apparently is a good match for Calibre (and yeah, I wish there was a reader out there that behaved like the Kobo and had the Calibre engine).</p> <p>My p[roblem is that although I’ve tried plugins, I must be doing something r=wrong, as I can’t get that output.</p> <p>But hey, as a last resort, yerah – it’ll do 🙂</p> </p> <p>I am new to eReading so there may be an easier way to do this, but I edited the Meta Data and put the number of the series IN the title like this:</p> <p>The Murder at the Vicarage (01) </p> <p>Please don’t do it this way, it messes up your Calibre metadata and will cause problems with other Calibre features (e.g. metadata download, search for covers). Calibre has all the features you need but some of them are well hidden</p> <p>If you can be patient I will post some basic general instructions in the next 24 hours.</p> </p> <p>OK . I’ll wait and thank you for the help.</p> <p>Um, If you include anything I should undo, or maybe uninstall / re-install Calibre is OK too just in case!</p> <p><img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/e-kitap-serilerinizi-doru-D6F8.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Sadece kitap başlıklarına dayanarak, bir kitap dizisinin hangi sıraya girdiğini hatırlamaya çalışmak oldukça sinir bozucu olabilir.

Bunu yorumlarda duyalım.</p> <p>Are you tired of spending so much time looking for your eBooks on an ugly Amazon page? Did you download an eBook from another website, but it’s an <em>epub</em> and you can’t easily send it to your Kindle? Well, let me help you with that.Kindle devices are incredibly popular and sometimes they’re used to back up arguments that paperbacks are dead. You can fill them with eBooks in an impressive pace. eBooks are everywhere: on Amazon and in hundreds of other stores, you can also find millions of free onesonline. When you do, you might find it hard to get them on your device. Kindles are very particular when it comes to file formats.There’s this powerful tool called calibre. It can manage all your eBooks, no matter where they came from and help you select the ones that will get on your device. With it, you can track which books you read and which ones you liked. It can download covers and metadata or compile a series of novels. It can also convert books from one format to another and even make your personal documents into eBooks. Kindle applications just don’t measure up to what calibre is capable of.</p> <h3>How to Set Up Your Library</h3> <p>You open calibre and plug your Kindle with USB for the first time. The program will scan its contents and create a file with metadata – this will allow you to control what eBooks from your library are on the device and vice versa.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/managing-your-kindle-E9F2.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Unfortunately, you cannot transfer eBooks you bought on Amazon from your Kindle to the calibre library directly. If you want to copy them:</p> <ol> <li>First, log in to your Amazon account. </li> <li>Then, choose “Manage Your Content and Devices” from the “My Account” tab. </li> <li>Finally, click “Download & transfer via USB” from under the “Actions” button.</li> </ol> <p>You will be prompted to select which device you’ll read this eBook on. This question pops up because of the DRM protection Amazon puts on eBooks they sell.To add the files, you just downloaded, to your calibre library, just drag-and-drop them to the calibre’s main window.Sending content from your calibre library to your Kindle is much easier. We’ll get to that in a bit.</p> <h3>How to Convert eBooks Using calibre</h3> <p>Let’s say you downloaded an eBook from somewhere on the Internet (say, The Gutenberg Project). But it turns out it’s in a different format than <em>mobi</em> or <em>azw</em>. Most likely, <em>epub</em>.<em>Epub</em> is the most popular eBook format and most eReaders support it because it’s open-source. Kindle devices, however, do not. Amazon uses its own two file formats: the older, <em>mobi</em> and the newer, <em>azw</em> (also: <em>azw3</em>). Both are Amazon’s property but offer a wider selection of options (e.g. adding a built-in dictionary or support for annotations and comments). The <em>azw</em> format was built upon <em>mobi</em> and offers better compression and encryption.If you want the eBook on your Kindle, you need to convert it to <em>mobi</em> or <em>azw</em> first. When you opened calibre for the very first time, you went through the configuration wizard. During this process, you already told calibre what device you use. Because of that calibre already chose the best file formats to convert to and you don’t even have to convert your eBooks by yourself, just send them and calibre will do the rest.</p> <h3>How to Send Your eBook to Kindle Using calibre</h3> <p>Okay, you prepared your eBook. Now, what? How to transfer them to your Kindle and start reading?

If you use headings such as Heading 2 for your chapter titles, you can insert an automatic table of contents.</p> <p>Most ebook publishing platforms recognize these headings, so you often don’t even need to create one in your manuscript.</p> <p>However, unlike adding an index to a print book, you can’t add one at the end of an ebook automatically. You will need to create your index manually.</p> <p>It’s not difficult, and you can use Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, or any other word processor.</p> <p>If you are publishing fiction books, you would rarely bother. But for authors of nonfiction books, an index is often a necessary element.</p> <p>You might have an index in your print book and would like to replicate it for your digital version.</p> <p>If you follow the steps below, you can start building a clickable index for ebook files by creating jump links.</p> <h3>Step One: Create an ebook index page</h3> <p>At the end of your manuscript, add a new page and give it a title.</p> <p>You would probably use the word <strong>Index</strong>. Then format it to Heading 2, so it will show in your table of contents.</p> <p>After that, add your alphabet index headings in normal text.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-36B64C1.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="214" class=""/></p> <p>You could use groups such as A-K, L-Q, R-Z if your index is relatively short.</p> <h3>Step Two: Bookmark a word or phrase</h3> <p>Within the text of your book, find a word you want to add to the index. You can use the Find search tool in your word processor to locate words.</p> <p>Select the word or phrase, and then click Bookmark from the Insert menu dropdown.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-ADDC00F.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="212" class=""/></p> <p>You can see that I have chosen the word <strong>crime</strong>.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-92825E9.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="374" class=""/></p> <p>In the Bookmark Name field, type in a name for your entry. If it is more than one word, you can’t have any spaces.</p> <p>So if your entry is Mount Everest, you will need to type in, <em>mounteverest</em>.</p> <p>Click Add, and you are ready to create your first index entry.</p> <h3>Step Three: Add an index entry</h3> <p>Type in your entry in your index.</p> <p>You can see below where I have added the entry, <strong>Crime</strong>.</p> <p>Select your word, and then from the Insert menu, select Hyperlink. (For Apple Pages, select Add Link and Bookmark from the Format menu.)</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-667F2AE.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="262" class=""/></p> <p>From the popup box, select your Bookmark.</p> <p>You may need to click on Document, then Locate, then the dropdown arrow for Bookmarks.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-22DEB4D.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="469" class=""/></p> <p>Click OK, and you have created your first index entry.</p> <p>You will see that the entry is now a blue hyperlink.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-F0FAEEE.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="232" class=""/></p> <p>Repeat the same procedure for all the entries your need to add to your ebook index.</p> <h3>Step Four: Multiple index entries</h3> <p>It’s common to have multiple listings in an index. On a print page, you would have the indexed word followed by the page numbers for its location.</p> <p>For example: Imagination, 7, 34, 96, 175.</p> <p>But this is not possible in indexes for ebooks. The only workaround is to create numbered entries. When you bookmark a word multiple times, add sequential numbers.</p> <p>For example: imagination1, imagination2, imagination3</p> <p>Then, when you add the bookmarked word to your index, use Imagination (1), Imagination (2), Imagination (3).</p> <p>You can format your entries in one line or on separate lines.</p> <p>You could also choose to only link the word and not the number in brackets.</p> <p>Imagination (1), Imagination (2), Imagination (3).</p> <p>This allows more space for a reader to click the entry.</p> <h3>Step Five: Test your ebook index</h3> <p>When you finish creating your index, it will work in any ebook format, including mobi and epub files.</p> <p>You can do a quick check by uploading your manuscript to Kindle Create.</p> <p>Scroll down to your index, and click on a link. If your jump link index is working correctly, it will jump to the entry location in your ebook.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-add-index-2C65CD9.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="600" height="210" class=""/></p> <p>You can also use Calibre to convert your Word file to .mobi and .epub so you can check your index on your Kindle, the Kindle App, or iBooks on your iPad.</p> <h3>Summary</h3> <p>Digital indexes are easy to create, although it is a little time-consuming compared to a print index.</p> <p>But if you want to give your ebook readers the same experience as your paperback readers, it is worth the effort to create a jump link index.</p> <p>The ebook is a great innovation. But there are still some restrictions, including the creation of any form of automatic indexing.</p> <p>So until the technology improves, the only way to have indexes present in an ebook is to create them manually.</p> <h4>Derek Haines</h4> <p>A Cambridge CELTA English teacher and author with a passion for writing and all forms of publishing. My days are spent writing and blogging, as well as testing and taming new technology.</p> <p><img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/ten-cool-tricks-BBE1.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>I was setting up my new laptop this weekend (well, newer) when I realized I hadn’t updated calibre in forever.</p> <p>Calibre is well known for being the best free app for managing your ebook and ereader collection, but this app can do a lot more than just move ebooks to your ereader or convert them from one format to another. I have been using calibre since long before it was even called calibre (since June 2007, in fact), and I know that I have just scratched the surface for all it can do.</p> <p>Since I haven’t really looked at calibre in at least a couple years, I decided now was a good time to update and expand this post from 2012.</p> <h2>Content Server</h2> <p>If you have to support a lot of ereaders or tablets, you’ve probably gotten used to having to plug them all in via USB so you can transfer ebooks and other content. By the time you get your 7th or 8th device this can get a little frustrating, and that’s why I’m glad calibre offers a better option.</p> <p>It’s called Content Server, and it basically lets calibre act as a file server for any device that can access a local network (wired or wireless) via a web browser – including Kindle, Nook, and some other ereaders. You can edit metadata, upload files, or even read the ebooks in your web browser</p> <p>You can find this feature by clicking on the <em>Connect/share</em> button and selecting “Start Content Server”. Setup is automatic, but accessing it once it is up and running takes a little work. If you want to visit the content server from another device, you will need to learn how to type the IP address and port number into your web browser.</p> <p>It will look something like this (don’t forget the colon!): 10.0.0.52: 8080</p> <h2>Metadata</h2> <p>Metadata is the pivot on which your ebook library turns. Without the proper info on the title, publisher, genre and other important details it is difficult to properly organize your library.</p> <p>And that’s why it is a very good thing that calibre can download metadata from a dozen or more different sources in a bunch of different languages including Dutch, Portuguese, German, Hungarian, Chinese, and more. You can also download metadata from most of the major ebookstores as well as OverDrive.</p> <p>You can edit an ebook’s metadata by clicking the button on calibre’s menu bar, but you can also expand the editing options by installing plugins. For example, there’s a plugin that will let you edit MP3 metadata.</p> <p>Right click on the <em>Preferences</em> button and select “Get plugins to enhance calibre”. You can search the list of available plugins by store, language, or some other important detail.</p> <h2>Merge & Split Epub eBooks</h2> <p>Have you ever bought an omnibus ebook and then regretted the file size? Or have you ever wished you could combine one of your favorite author’s many individually published short stories in a single anthology? There are a couple plugins which can help.</p> <p>EpubSplit and EpubMerge are a couple plugins for calibre which do pretty much what they say. Once installed, you can select one or more titles listed in the main menu of calibre, right click, and then select either EpubSplit or EpubMerge as an option. A new menu will pop up which will let you combine or divide the files in question.</p> <p>This option needs to be enabled by installing plugins. Right click on the <em>Preferences</em> button and select “Get plugins to enhance calibre”.</p> <h2>Remove DRM</h2> <p>This is a topic that I’ve covered in some detail in other posts, so I won’t repeat it here. But I do like being able to transfer my Kindle, Nook, and other ebooks to which ever device or app I’m using now without having to bother with registration or downloading the content again.</p> <p>You can find my posts on how to install DRM removal plugins for Kindle and Nook ebooks elsewhere on the blog.</p> <h2>Read the News</h2> <p>Calibre is known as an ebook library tool but it does a lot more. One featured loved by a number of dedicated readers is fetching the news. This lets you set a schedule for calibre to scan and download the contents of news sites and blogs. Calibre has to be running and your computer turned on, but the nice part is that calibre comes pre-configured with over 1300 news sources from all over the globe.</p> <h2>Wiki Reader</h2> <p>Wiki Reader is a plugin which lets you grab the contents of one or more Wikipedia articles and build them into an ebook. You’ll need to copy and paste the URLs for each article one at a time, so it could get time-consuming, but this is a good way to make your own ebook on a topic.</p> <p>You can find the plugin over on MobileRead.</p> <h2>Import eBooks from an eReader or Tablet</h2> <p>One feature that I keep forgetting, but is terribly useful, is how calibre can find ebooks on your tablet or ereader and add them to your calibre library ebook collection. This might not happen to you, but I often download ebooks from free ebook sites (Feedbooks, author’s websites, etc) to whichever tablet I am using. I don’t always remember to get a copy later to add to calibre, but that is largely because I don’t have to. All I need to do is plug in my tablet via USB and calibre will copy the ebook files off of it.</p> <p>This feature is particularly useful for stripping the DRM from Kepub (the Kobo-specific Epub format).</p> <h2>Import Annotations</h2> <p>Do you know what’s even cooler than pulling your ebooks off your device and adding them to your calibre library?</p> <p>Bringing the annotations with the ebooks.</p> <p>There’s a calibre plugin that will help you import notes, highlights, and other annotations from your Kindle or Kobo ereader. Hardware support is limited to just those two device makers, but it’s still better than a kick in the pants.</p> <p>Head over to MobileRead to find out more about the plugin.</p> <h2>calibre2OPDS</h2> <p>If you have a well maintained calibre library, and you have an account at Dropbox, you might want to consider combining them in a clever way. While you can always upload your ebooks and download them manually, there is a better option.</p> <p>Calibre2OPDS is an app for Windows, Linux, and macOS which build an OPDS catalog based on the contents of your calibre ebook library. Upload your ebook library to Dropbox, add the OPDS catalog generated by Calibre2OPDS, and assuming you follow all the steps you will be able to download your ebooks from inside reading apps like Stanza, Moon+ Reader, and others.</p> <h2>What’s Next?</h2> <p>The above 5 tricks are some of my preferred ways to use calibre, and I bet I’ve only scratched the surface. How do you use this app? What’s your clever trick? I’d like to hear about it, and I’m my readers would as well.</p> <p>I have been given a huge collection of books, papers and docs in various formats like pdf, epub, lit, among many others. I simply want to use Calibre to view these without adding to a library, at least initially. Later on I might create a library and catalogue the books I am interested in, but for now, all I want is a viewer that can handle numerous formats.</p> <p>Can Calibre do this and if not, can anyone recommend a viewer or small set of viewers that can handle all the popular ebook and document formats?</p> <p>Thanks in advance.</p> <p>It should be very easy to use only the viewer in calibre. Just associate the file formats with the ebook viewer.</p> <p>However you might benefit from the knowledge that the calibre ebook viewer actually is a epub viewer. But since calibre has the ability to convert between different formats, calibre can convert other formats to epub "on the fly" and let you read the resulting file in the calibre viewer that way.</p> <p>But you may improve the reading experience by using the tools in calibre to make a better conversion by making adjustments to the process. You can adjust things like layout, line breaks, paragraph spacing, page breaks, indentation, fonts, table of contents, headings, cover and other things.</p> <p>Pdf is a special case. It is very difficult to convert. I personally have standardised on just epub and pdf. I convert everything to epub, except for pdfs, and leave pdfs as they are. That way I only have to be able to read epub and pdf.</p> <p>So my main use of calibre is to fix metadata, convert to epub and then send the epub to my reading device. I don’t actually use calibre for much else, but I still keep my books there, as a backup. But I only keep the books in calibre as pdf or epub, all other formats are converted and then deleted. I also save the original unconverted formats outside calibre. Good to have if I discover that something went wrong in the conversion.</p> <p>I have downloaded some books in Mobi / PRC format from the library here at Mobile Read. In some cases, I want to change the cover image, but I can’t get it to work. I’d appreciate some help.</p> <p>I am using Calibre ver. 0.7.7.</p> <p>This is what I have been doing:</p> <p>1. Downloaded the book as a PRC file.</p> <p>2. Added it to my Calibre library.</p> <p>3. Went to the "Edit metadata individually" screen. In the Book Cover area, I can see the cover that comes with the book.</p> <p>4. Clicked the "Browse" button and selected a JPG file (on my hard drive) to use as the cover. The new image shows up correctly in the Book Cover area.</p> <p>I can now see the new image in Calibre, both in the main library page and also when I open the book within Calibre. I can also see a new file, named Cover.JPG, in the book’s containing folder; this file contains the new image.</p> <p>The problem is that when I try to open the book in Kindle for PC or the Mobi Pocket reader, or when I transfer it via USB to my Kindle, I still see the built-in image.</p> <p>I have also tried this:</p> <p>1. Selected the book in the Calibre library.</p> <p>2. Opened the Convert E-Book screen. I can see my new cover in the Book Cover part of the screen.</p> <p>3. Clear the checkbox labelled "Use cover from source file".</p> <p>4. Clicked the "Browse" button and selected the file with my new image.</p> <p>5. Clicked OK to convert the book from PRC to Mobi.</p> <p>The result is exactly the same as before. The new cover shows up in Calibre, but not in the other readers.</p> <h2>How to use Calibre program to add pdf pattern files to your Kindle</h2> <p>As I promised earlier, I am going to show you how to change your pdf files to mobi files (the kind that kindle readers utilize to display ebooks). There are a LOT of free patterns available on Ravelry, blogs, and yarn distributors’ websites that are wonderful — and did I mention — free. Now, I do have a printer, but I am lazy to a fault sometimes, and I a) can’t find the cable to connect it to my computer, b) don’t want to buy a new cartridge, and c) have been suffering from this printer lack for almost 3 years now (yes, true, THAT lazy…). Having been a graduate student for a few years now, I have learned to print off about 50 pdf patterns at a time from the university library for free. Hey, I’m paying the technology fee every semester, that might as well be MY paper, okay?</p> <p>So now that I have graduated and no longer have access to free library-printing, when I decide to knit something from a pattern that isn’t already available on paper or in a pattern book, I have a problem. Or do I??</p> <p>Enter the kindle that mom and stepdad got me for Christmas. I have already figured out how to fit tons of books on it, mostly free books that I got from gutenberg.org. So, because I have so many books on it already, I didn’t want to work to scroll through a ton of them directly on the kindle. I looked for a program that would organize the crap out of my ebook library. Enter Calibre.</p> <p>You can read all about the program on its website; I’m here to show you how to use it to make easily read pattern files for your kindle. As far as I know, this can work for a nook as well (I believe they also use mobi files).</p> <p>First, download and open calibre. It will look like this when opened (if you already have books in your calibre library, anyway).</p> <p><img src="https://emilancelace.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/screen-shot-2012-06-12-at-8-16-15-pm.png?w=580&h=363" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>The next thing you want to do (assuming you have already downloaded your free pdf pattern onto your computer) is locate the file through calibre.</p> <p><img src="https://emilancelace.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/screen-shot-2012-06-12-at-8-16-42-pm.png?w=580&h=363" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Click “add books from a single directory” at the top left corner.</p> <p><img src="https://emilancelace.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/screen-shot-2012-06-12-at-8-17-06-pm1.png?w=580&h=363" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Find the file (in my case, everything I download goes into a “download” folder, so it’s pretty easy to locate). Click ok. After it loads into calibre, click the big blue i button that says “edit metadata.” I do this to clean up the title, author, and make tags for easy searching.</p> <p><img src="https://emilancelace.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/screen-shot-2012-06-12-at-8-18-06-pm.png?w=580&h=363" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Click okay when your crazy urge to organize is satisfied.</p> <p><img src="https://emilancelace.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/screen-shot-2012-06-12-at-8-18-32-pm.png?w=580&h=363" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Make sure the “ebook” that you loaded is still highlighted. Up in the left top corner you’ll see the “convert books” button (near that “edit metadata” button you just finished with). Click this. You should see this open up:</p> <p><img src="https://emilancelace.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/screen-shot-2012-06-12-at-8-19-02-pm.png?w=580&h=363" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Near the top right corner of that pop-up, you’ll see the original file type in a drop down menu. Leave that one alone. Look in the top right corner, and you should see “mobi” as the output format. Click okay.</p> <p>There are one or two more steps to getting your file onto your kindle. You can either email it to your kindle account (using calibre), or you can plug your kindle into your computer and add the file from calibre. Both are fairly straightforward tasks, so I’ll leave you to that.</p> <p>I am trying to convert my ebooks from epub format to mobi/azw3, in order to put them onto my Kindle App and Paperwhite.

For an introduction on how to use it to add books to the Kindle, check out:</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-convert-and-013E49.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="1024" height="682" class=""/></p> <p>If you rely on a Kindle (or Kindle app) for reading, you probably know that it supports not only ebooks, but also PDFs.</p> <p>In fact, if you’ve done your homework, you also know that your Kindle (or Kindle app) has its own email address, meaning you can send any PDF straight to your device just by attaching it to an email.</p> <p>But reading PDFs on a Kindle requires a little help. Portable Document Files (PDFs) are static images, boasting exactly the same dimensions, typeface, illustrations and formatting, on any device capable of opening them. That’s great news for anyone with a display large enough to view a PDF at its full size, but lousy news for anyone using a little Kindle e-reader. The comparatively small size of the display forces you to zoom and scroll around to read the document. It’s a pretty miserable experience.</p> <p>The solution to this is to convert the PDFs to be read on a Kindle. We’ll show you the aforementioned email trick first, and then a couple of other solutions. (Check out our latest Kindle reviews and ratings in our comprehensive roundup.)</p> <h2>Send a PDF to your Kindle via email</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-convert-and-5796AE.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="700" height="507" class=""/></p> <p> <small>Seamus Bellamy/IDG</small></p> <p>Fun fact: every Kindle comes with its own email address, so you can send PDFs to your Kindle.</p> <p>Every Amazon Kindle comes with its own email address. You can find the address of your Kindle under <em>Settings > My Account > Send to Kindle Email</em>.</p> <p>Send an email to this address, typing <strong>Convert</strong> for the subject line and attaching the PDF you’d like to read. Amazon will automatically convert the contents of the PDF to a size that your e-reader can more readily handle. Once converted, the PDF will be sent to your Kindle using Amazon’s Whispersync technology.</p> <p>Using this method to convert PDFs has its drawbacks. First, it can take anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours for the PDF to show up in your Kindle’s library. Second, if you’re using your Kindle out of the country where it was originally registered, using Whispersync to load the file on your e-reader could end up costing you a few bucks. Third, if your PDF contains images or charts, the conversion process may orient them the wrong way in the document or split them across several pages.</p> <h2>Send a PDF with the Send to Kindle App</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-convert-and-C118D7.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="700" height="470" class=""/></p> <p> <small>Seamus Bellamy/IDG</small></p> <p>Sending a PDF to your Kindle is just a right-click away.</p> <p>If you read a lot of PDFs on a regular basis, you’ll likely not want to send an email every time you want to convert one. Amazon’s Send to Kindle app is the better option at that point. Available for Mac OS and Windows PCs, the Send to Kindle app is free to download and easy to use. Once installed, simply sign into the app using your Amazon credentials and right-click on the PDF you want to send to your Kindle. Boom: You’re done. The converted PDF will appear in your Kindle e-reader, with all of the same caveats that come with sending the document via email, sans the drudgery of typing out and sending a message.</p> <p>Amazon also offers a Send to Kindle browser extension for Firefox and Chrome users. A single click will send the PDF from your Browser to your Kindle via Whispersync.</p> <h2>How Calibre converts multiple PDFs for Kindle</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/how-convert-and-D27754.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="700" height="432" class=""/></p> <p> <small>Seamus Bellamy/IDG</small></p> <p>Calibre is a free app that makes cataloging e-reader content, including PDFs, a breeze.</p> <p>If you need to bulk-convert a large number of PDFs for reading on your Kindle or want to maintain a library of Kindle-optimized files on your computer, you may want to consider downloading Calibre. Open-source and free-to-use, Calibre can convert multiple PDFs and send them to your Kindle quickly and easily.</p> <p>To use Calibre for this purpose, connect your Kindle to your PC via USB, open Calibre, and wait for it to recognize your connected e-reader. Add the PDF files to Calibre’s library and click <em>Send to device</em>. Your Kindle will be ready to show those PDFs within minutes.</p> <p><em>This story’s original version by Rick Broida was published as a “Hassle-Free PC” column on July 15, 2013.</em></p> <p>The main calibre window has a default set of columns that most people find useful in organising their ebook collection. These include Title, Author, Date, Size (of file in MB), Ratings, Tags , Series, Publisher and Published. Although these columns are sufficient for many users, most calibre features are made flexible to accommodate unusual needs and whims. The set of columns in the main window can be easily customized to include those columns that you find most useful. This demo video (the part between approximately 2 and 4 minutes of the 14 minute long video) illustrates how to manipulate the contents of columns as well as how to delete unwanted columns and add custom columns.</p> <p><strong>Manipulating the columns:</strong> Depending on your screen size only a few columns can be made visible so you will only want to include columns that are useful to you. If you need more columns than fit in your screen, you can move the most useful ones to the left so they are always visible. The order of the columns can be changed by left clicking on the column title and dragging it to the left or right of other column titles. As shown in the figure below you can right click on the column title to see ways in which you can manipulate it.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/calibre-custom-columns-F183.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>You can hide the column if it is not useful to you. You can also sort the entries in your library in ascending or descending order of the entries in a particular column like the rating; having the highest rated bpooks on top and the lowest rated at the bottom of your list. This can also be used to arrange books in alphabetical (or reverse alphabetical) order of author or title. You can also implement this by simply left clicking on the title of the column you want to sort by. If you want the order reversed just click on the column title again. If the entries are arranged in descending (ascending) order of the entries in a particular column a little grey downward (upward) pointing arrow appears next to the column title; like for the Rating column in the figure above.<br />For a text type column like author or title you can choose the the text to be left, right, or center aligned. You can manipulate the width of the columns by hovering the mouse between two column titles, once the left-right double sided arrow icon shows up you can drag it left or right to adjust the width.</p> <p><strong>Adding custom columns:</strong> To add a custom column click on Preferences in the main calibre tool bar and in the new window that opens click “Add your own columns” in the first row of icons under Interface. The following window appears.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/calibre-custom-columns-CBD6DDE.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>The columns marked with an “x” are the visible columns in your main calibre window. You can select or unselect columns here to choose which ones should be visible. To add a column not on the list click the green “+” sign button on the right and the following window appears.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/calibre-custom-columns-28C1.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>First you must choose the nature of entries in your custom column. The figure above shows the available data types including integer numbers, text, binary yes and no entries, dates, floating point numbers, etc. This blog post will illustrate examples of two different data type columns.</p> <p><strong>Example Binary Yes/No type column:</strong> Here we are going to create a binary Yes/No type column with column heading “Read”, look up name “read” and column type Yes/No. The entry Yes in this column indicates the book is read and No indicates the book is not yet read. After filling the entries and clicking OK in the window in the above figure a new column appears with title “Read” in the main calibre window. By double clicking in the position of the entries of this column a drop down box opens that allows you to select “Yes” or “No” or leave it blank as shown in the figure below. So you can now mark the read status of the ebooks in you collection as done for a few in the figure below. A green tick indicates Yes or read and a white cross in a red circle indicates No or not read. You can also leave the read status blank.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/calibre-custom-columns-A498.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p><strong>Example Text with fixed set of permitted values type column:</strong> We will use this type of column to indicate the genre of the book. The figure below shows how we have chosen the values and corresponding colors for the entries in this column.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/calibre-custom-columns-E059.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>Setting the column up as shown above will create a column titled Genre with allowed entries Adventure, Mystery, Classic, Humour, Play and News as shown below. The adventure entry will always be in black the Mystery entry in blue etc.</p> <p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/calibre-custom-columns-F1D5C.png" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" class=""/></p> <p>To fill the entries of this column as before double click on the column entry and a drop down box will show up with the allowed entries as shown in the figure above. The figure above also shows a few books with this entry filled in and the News entry is in red while the Humour entry is in green. The colors will help quickly distinguish the different genre at a glance.</p> <p>Hope you have fun playing around with various types of custom columns this week and find it useful. See you again in about a week.</p> <p>Ebooks are hot. They’re just about the only part of the book industry that’s growing. When “The Lost Symbol,” Dan Brown’s followup to “The Da Vinci Code” was published this week, aside from preorders, the Kindle edition of the book outsold the hardcover edition at Amazon.com,one report said, .</p> <p>Great news for InDesign users is that Adobe InDesign provides one of the best ways to create e-Books (you need InDesign CS3 or InDesign CS4). However, the methodology for doing this isn’t necessarily easy or obvious. But a new Adobe white paper published this week, along with a couple of helpful blog posts from Adobe, will help you get started exploring this new technology. Below, I’ll point out an alternative method of reading your InDesign-created eBook.</p> <p>The first step is to create an ePub file. As Mike Rankin wrote on InDesignSecrets.com in February, ePub is “an open standard XML-based file format that allows text to reflow and adjust to the size of various screens. epub is generally thought of as an intermediary format between the authoring/composition tool and the eBook itself. Think of epub as the eBook version of a press-ready PDF. Not the final product, but a necessary step.”</p> <p><strong>Exporting ePub Files</strong></p> <p>You can create an ePub file by choosing File > Export for Digital Editions (CS4) or File > Cross-media Export > XHTML / Digital Editions (CS3). There are three panels of choices.</p> <p><em><small>More after the jump!

However, not every InDesign file will work equally well. Long InDesign documents need to be broken into separate files, and text frames need to be threaded together into one flow. A highly useful blog post from Adobe called “Producing ePub documents from InDesign” provides some guidelines for preparing files correctly.</p> <p>InDesign CS4 will work much better than InDesign CS3. Quite a few bugs are fixed, and you have new capabilities like being able to include images as anchored objects. Local formatting like bold will really come through as bold. Another posting details some of the improvements in CS4.</p> <p>You can preview the ePub you create in Adobe Digital Editions. a free, lightweight eBook reading application for PC and Mac. You can use it to read and organize your eBook collection, as well as preview the ePub files you export from InDesign.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/creating-ebooks-indesign-8A939D.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="368" height="224" class=""/></p> <p><strong>New White Paper Covers Conversion to Kindle</strong></p> <p>The eBook reader you’ve probably heard the most about is the Amazon Kindle. However, it <em>doesn’t</em> read the ePub format. You need to convert your ePub file into the MOBI format, which the Amazon Kindle can read. This process, and how you can preview your eBook and upload it to the Amazon store are covered in a new white paper from Adobe just published this week. To do the conversion, you need to use Calibre, which is a free, open source eBook conversion tool. Calibre is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. The steps for the conversion are detailed in the white paper.</p> <p>This document also has helpful tips for formatting the InDesign file like this one:</p> <blockquote> <p>If your InDesign document contains local formatting (a manually bolded word without a Character Style applied to it, for example), make sure you select the Local Formatting option under Base for CSS Styles in the Digital Editions Export Options dialog. Local formatting export is supported in the latest version of InDesign CS4 (v. 6.0.3). If you’re using InDesign CS3, only Character Styles, Paragraph Styles, and Object Styles are preserved during the export.</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>Another Approach: Creating ePubs for the iPhone</strong></p> <p>But the Kindle is not the only way of viewing eBooks. A competitor is Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch. There are several free eBook readers available from Apple’s App Store (Stanza, Kindle for the iPhone, B&N eReader, and others). This is potentially a huge market because Apple recently announced that there are now 30 million iPhones and 20 million iPod Touches. Most of these readers can read ePub files directly.</p> <p>My favorite way of reading ePubs on my iPhone is to use the free Stanza application. In Stanza for the iPhone/iPod Touch, you can use the Online Catalog feature to download free and paid eBooks from a variety of sources. But how do you get your own InDesign-created ePub into an iPhone? You use the free Stanza Desktop application for the Mac or PC, available from Stanza’s creator, Lexcycle.</p> <p>Once you’ve downloaded Stanza Desktop, launch it. Choose File > Open, and open the ePub file you created in InDesign. Unlike Adobe Digital Editions, the file will appear to lose its formatting because this application isn’t intended as an ePub reader for the desktop. Your computer needs to be on the same local network as your iPhone or iPod Touch. If it is, open the Stanza on the iPhone/iPod Touch, and choose Shared Books. Click on “Books on [name of your computer]”. You’ll see the name of the ePub file you’re viewing in Stanza Desktop. Click on the file’s name. If the book has a cover image, you can view it. Then click Download. Stanza Desktop will let you know that your iPhone/iPod Touch wants to download that file. When you confirm this, the file is transferred to the mobile device and added to the Stanza for the iPhone/iPod Touch’s library.</p> <p>Now you can view the Table of Contents.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" src="/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/creating-ebooks-indesign-3EE83D8.jpg" alt="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" title="How to use calibre to correctly order your ebook series" width="320" height="480" class=""/></p> <p>You can page through your pages. Stanza has a variety of reading controls. Click on the bottom part of the screen to view them. You can change text size and color, background color, and so on.

She always wants to share everything related to ebook reading and improve your reading journey.</p> <p>This is an article series that will explain the most common reasons why ebook users have trouble opening an ebook that was purchased from an ebook retail website. Most of these issues are easily avoided by simply following your download instructions, installing the software you need, and making sure that you’re using the correct ebook format for your eReader. This post covers reason #5: <em>The eBook File is Corrupted or The Download Link is Bad.</em></p> <p>These are the least commons reason why your ebook isn’t opening correctly, but they do happen from time to time.</p> <p>Sometimes the website selling the ebook will have made a mistake in the download link, which will cause it to not work when you attempt to download your ebook. Even the people running ebook websites are humans, so mistakes can be made. Sometimes the problem originated before it even got to the ebook store. When a book publisher wants to sell their books as ebooks, often they list their ebooks with a company that distributes ebooks and provides DRM on the downloads. The book publisher must provide the distributor with all of the pertinent information about the ebook, including the file name. If that file name is provided incorrectly, it will still be incorrect when it gets to the ebook store.</p> <p>Sometimes the ebook file itself has become corrupted. These files have to be sent from the book publisher to the distributor to the ebook store, and they go through a lot of different servers during that time, they’re stored in multiple databases, and the download happens through multiple pieces of software. It is a bit of a miracle that the files don’t get corrupted a lot more than they do. If you end up with an ebook file that has become corrupted and won’t open, keep this in mind.</p> <p>However, remember that these occurrences are not common. The majority of the time, when an ebook isn’t opening the reason is that the user is trying to open it with the wrong software or the wrong e-reader device. For example, if you try to open a DRM-protected PDF file with Adobe Reader, the program will give you a message that the file is corrupt. In this case, the file is not actually corrupt — that’s just the only way that Adobe Reader knows how to tell you that it can’t open the file when it’s meant for Adobe Digital Editions.</p> <p>If you’ve found this post through Google and haven’t yet read through the more common reasons why your ebook isn’t opening, please check those out first before you assume that your ebook file is corrupted. See all posts in this series.</p> <h3>Share this:</h3> </p> <h3>Like this:</h3> <p>This is an article series that will explain the most common reasons why ebook users have trouble opening an ebook that was purchased from an ebook retail website. Most of these issues are easily avoided by simply following your download instructions, installing the software you need, and making sure that you’re using the correct ebook format for your eReader. This post covers reason #4: <em>The DRM Has Gone Wrong Over Time</em>.</p> <p>This particular problem arises when you’ve purchased an ebook in the past. You might run into trouble if you try to use the ebook on a new computer/device, a computer that has had its operating system upgraded/reinstalled, or if you’re simply trying to re-download an ebook that you’d previously lost or deleted.</p> <p>Like we have in the previous articles, let’s consider this issue in terms of Adobe’s DRM, since Adobe provides the most prevalent DRM system for ebooks. Adobe does allow users to re-download previous purchases and to use their ebooks on multiple computers and devices. However, Adobe’s DRM system must be worked with properly if you want this to work.</p> <p>Before you download an Adobe ebook for the first time, you must “authorize” Adobe Digital Editions with your Adobe ID. If you do that, then you can authorize Adobe Digital Editions on other computers with the same Adobe ID, and Adobe will allow you to use your ebooks on those computers as well.</p> <p>Some people try to skip all of that and just email the ebook to their other computer, transfer it via a thumb drive, or something similar. That is exactly what the software is set up to prevent you from doing. The whole purpose of the DRM is to prevent people from sharing the file with others. Whether or not you agree with this is pretty much irrelevant. It is what you have to deal with right now if you want to use Adobe ebooks.</p> <p>If you don’t authorize Adobe Digital Editions with the same Adobe ID on each computer, you will probably get an error message that says “ebook already licensed to a different user” or some variation on that text. If you’ve gotten that type of error message, you will have to go back to the beginning of the process and start over.</p> <p>First, install Adobe Digital Editions on the computer where you want to read the ebook.</p> <p>Second, authorize it with the same Adobe ID that you used when you downloaded the ebook for the first time. (If you did not authorize Adobe Digital Editions with an Adobe ID before you downloaded the ebook for the first time, then you have effectively forfeited your right to use the ebook on multiple computers.)</p> <p>Third, return to the ebook store where you purchased the ebook, and download it from there to the computer where you want to use the ebook.</p> <p>If you suspect that you’ve authorized Adobe Digital Editions with the wrong Adobe ID, you can redo your authorization. Learn how to de-authorize and re-authorize Adobe Digital Editions here.</p> <p>The next installment in this series will be #5, the final part. See all posts in this series.</p> <p>If you still like reading real books, you may find it hard to keep them in order. So in this article, we explain how to organize your book collection.</p> <p>As an avid book reader and collector, you face two problems: you need to organize your book collection and deal with the lack of space. Books come in all shapes and sizes, cover all subjects, and put the world firmly on your doorstep. That’s the joy of books. But they can be a nightmare to sort through.</p> <p>Fortunately, technology can help you keep your books in order. What is the best way to organize your book collection? How do you organize a bookshelf with a lot of books? And should you really get rid of your prized novels?</p> <h2>5 Ways to Organize Your Book Collection</h2> <p>Books are personal, so you need to arrange them in a way that’s most accessible to you. Do you separate hardbacks from paperbacks? Do you stack them in piles? With that in mind, here are a few ways to organize your books.</p> <h3>1. Sort Books Using the Dewey Decimal System</h3> <p>How do you organize a library? This is the professional way to do it, i.e. how they’re listed in educational institutions. So what is the Dewey Decimal System?</p> <p>It’s simply a numerical-based method to organize books by genre, then by author surname. Here’s the basic system used in public spaces:</p> <p><strong>000:</strong> Computer science, information, and general works</p> <p><strong>100:</strong> Philosophy and Psychology</p> <p><strong>200:</strong> Religion</p> <p><strong>300:</strong> Social Sciences</p> <p><strong>400:</strong> Language</p> <p><strong>500:</strong> Natural Sciences</p> <p><strong>600:</strong> Applied Sciences and Technology</p> <p><strong>700:</strong> Arts and Recreation</p> <p><strong>800:</strong> Literature</p> <p><strong>900:</strong> History, Geography, and Biography</p> <p>Each number further splits into smaller categories. For instance, Literature is divided into American literature in English (810), English & Old English literatures (820), and many more. William Shakespeare even has his own subcategory (822.33).</p> <p>But of course, you can do your own thing by creating your own organizational system. Splitting by genre could just mean you group all detective fiction together. Romance has its own place, as do thrillers. Classics might deserve their own space—it’s entirely up to you.</p> <p>Or you can simply split your collection into fiction and non-fiction.</p> <p>Let’s explore some less intense ways to sort your collection.</p> <h3>2. Make a “To Read” Pile</h3> <p>You finish one book and want to start a new one. But they’re scattered haphazardly about so you can’t find the one you’re after.</p> <p>Instead, create different piles, shelves, or cupboards. These separate the books you’ve read (and want to keep—which we’ll come back to) from the tomes you still want to enjoy. This will mean it’s easier to decide what to enjoy next.</p> <h3>3. Keep Your Favorite Books Separate</h3> <p>Are there novels you want to reread? Or journals that will be useful for work? Keep them separated from the rest of your books.</p> <p>Keeping your favorite books to one side can prove a handy pick-me-up on days you’re feeling low. If you are feeling down, a fantastic immersive story can cheer you up. Don’t forget that there are plenty of websites you can browse when you’re feeling depressed too.</p> <h3>4. Organize Your Books Alphabetically</h3> <p>This is the easiest method for keeping your collection in order. Organize your volumes in alphabetical order, according to authors’ names, or by title.</p> <p>This can be first name or surname, as long as you remember which you’ve opted for. It wouldn’t be such a problem when looking for Christie, Agatha, but is more important for Zafón, Carlos Ruiz.</p> <h3>5. Sort by Series</h3> <p>Few things are as frustrating as finishing one book in a series and eagerly reaching for the next. only to find you’ve misplaced it. You spend the next day scouring your bookshelves, intermittently crying, and checking behind sofas. Then you order a replacement copy online.</p> <p>Alternatively, you could keep series in chronological order and make life as stress-free as possible.</p> <h2>Cataloging Sites Help Track Reading Progress</h2> <p>How do you keep track of which books you’ve read and which you’d like to catch up with?</p> <p>A good option is using a cataloguing website.</p> <p>The best-known one is Goodreads, which contains details on the vast majority of books, including different editions. You can mark any you’ve read and review them. Many authors are also members, so will see feedback and can be asked questions about their work. Plus, you can mark books you’re interested in and Goodreads will email you further recommendations.</p> <p>At the end of the year, Goodreads will give you a helpful summary of how much you’ve read.</p> <p>Another solution is LibraryThing, a similar service which is now free and also includes movies and music. The interface is simple but don’t be put off: this is a fantastic social network for readers. You can filter by tags, meaning organizing your collection is easy.</p> <p>And if you prefer physical records, LibraryThing lets you print off your catalog!</p> <h2>Collectorz Builds a Virtual Library</h2> <p>You can use various cataloging apps, but one of the best is Collectorz. This covers many mediums, including films, books, and video games. It goes above and beyond, however: the comic book version, for instance, includes a library of graphic novels.</p> <p>Okay, so basically, how do I prevent callibre from renaming files that I’ve added? Since I plan to open them with mobipocket (Amazon Kindle 4 PC does not display covers, but reconverting and opening the files with mobi does, every time.) Because it’s super annoying having to manually rename files that I’ve already renamed.</p> <p>Normally, it wouldn’t be a problem. But it’s a HUGE problem for Series books, since you can’t ‘Sort by Series’ with mobipocket, nor will Callibre locate the series every time.</p> <p>For example, I’m trying to add:</p> <p>Garth Nix [Abhorson Book 01] Sabriel <br />Garth Nix [Abhorson Book 02] Lirael <br />Garth Nix [Abhorson Book 03] Abhorson</p> <p>But when I add it to Callibre, it’s listed as:</p> <p>Sabriel <br />Lirael <br />Abhorson</p> <p>Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, but for books like this, I have to re-check the folder to see what order the books go in, because the proper Series is rarely found.</p> <p>How would I prevent Callibre from doing this? Or how would I be sure that it finds the series EVERY time?</p> <p>You use the series and series index fields. That is why they are there.</p> <p>Sometimes it is possible to get the series information from the filenames, when you add books. There are a lot of threads about that here. Search for "metadata from filename".</p> <p>If all else fails, you can enter the series information manually.</p> <p>When you send the books to the device, you can add the series information to the filename using the send to device template, or to the title using a plugboard.</p> <p>Thank you. I’ll try that. But to be honest, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by this at the moment, cause I have files that I’d like to send to friends and files that I’d like to keep, and yet Calibre cuts off part of the title in the Calibre Library Folder. For example:</p> <p>[Anna Strong Chronicles 01] The Becoming – Jeanne C. Stein</p> <p>[Anna Strong Chronicles 01] The Bec – Jeanne C. Stein</p> <p>See, I wouldn’t have a problem with that, because I’m planning to direct the mobi PC reader to find books from a shared network, but these are books I want to send to my love. Do I really need to rename them? Is there a reason that Callibre does this?</p> <p>Copying is out of the question because the ONLY reason why I’m using calibre with the files is to replace some of the covers for better ones.</p> <p>Basically, what I want to do is download the cover ONLY without Calibre renaming the file in the output folder, to prevent cutting off some words.</p> <p>You should NOT look inside the Calibre library. And you should definitely not copy any books from there.</p> <p>Use the Save to disk feature. Then you decide in the template exactly how the book should be named.</p> <p>But this only works if the different fields for the books contains correct information. The title should only contain the title, and not any series information. The series information goes in the series fields. If you have some extra information you wish to store, you create a custom field.</p> <p>If you use Calibre as intended, you will hopefully be less frustrated. But it may take some time before you get the hang of it. I suggest you do some experimenting to understand Calibre better. Try to get metadata from the filenames. Try to set all fields perfectly. Try fetching metadata for the book. Try to save to disk using different templates. Try the plugboard to see what it does.</p> <p>Okay, so basically, how do I prevent callibre from renaming files that I’ve added?
