Calibre for Readers - A Useful Post

Calibre Logo Busy busy with editing Bad Hunting and getting ready to write another Estelend novel, and oh yeah Christmas and stuff, but I wanted to take a minute to link to this very useful post on Indies Unlimited: Calibre for Readers, part 1. Calibre is a free ebook management program, which a lot of authors use for doing ebook conversions. It's also designed as an ebook library, where you can list all the ebooks on your computer, group them by authors, series, and tags, transfer them on and off of your ereader, and other cool stuff. If you buy ebooks from a variety of stores such as Amazon and allRomance and Smashwords, it's a great way to aggregate them all in one place. If the book doesn't have DRM, Calibre can also be used to convert ebooks from one format to another (for example, if you find yourself with a book in Kindle format and want to convert it for your Nook).

You can also use it to convert personal documents in various formats, such as DOCX, PDF, RTF, and TXT, into an ebook file for easy reading on your ereader. I've done this with fanfictions I've written, just for fun :)

Anyway, Calibre is a very cool and useful program, and it's free (though they welcome donations), so check out the blog post for more information!
