01) Calibre E-Book Manager

02) About calibre

“calibre is a powerful and easy to use e-book manager. Users say it’s outstanding and a must-have. It’ll allow you to do nearly everything and it takes things a step beyond normal e-book software. It’s also completely free and open source and great for both casual users and computer experts.”

I finally just got the most recent version of Calibre installed on this PC…

…I’ll be totally up front…It’s been years since I used this software…and that was a much earlier version…It did work well, for transferring e-books into different file formats [including PDF]…but, I’ve not tried much of anything with this latest version.

I’m out of the loop…so, I cannot offer any real advice on using this software…I still wanted to share the link.
