Powerful and easy to use e-book manager
  20 reviews

Calibre is a complete e-library solution. It includes library management, format conversion, news feeds to e-book conversion, e-book viewer and editor, and e-book reader sync features.

Calibre is primarily an e-book cataloging program. It manages your e-book collection for you. It is designed around the concept of the logical book, i.e. a single entry in the database that may correspond to e-books in several formats. It also supports conversion to and from a dozen different e-book formats.

Calibre supports almost every single e-Reader (e.g., Kindle, Kobo, Nook) and is compatible with more devices with every update. Calibre can transfer your e-books from one device to another in seconds, wirelessly or with a cable. It will send the best file format for your device converting it if needed, automatically.

Calibre can automatically fetch news from a number of websites/RSS feeds, format the news into a e-book and upload to a connected device.

Calibre has also a built-in e-book viewer that can display all the major e-book formats.

Calibre has been used for many years over three main operating systems and is a useful program. Am not sure why the distro version is way behind, as the current update is 5.22.1.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS! As specified on their official website, download the OFFICIAL latest release. At this time it is 4.11.2 which is MUCH newer.
