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.

I took the advice of Guest1053, who wrote in April, 2022 "Official site says not to use this and to only use the binary located on their website" and installed the binary from the web site. However, I found that it was unable to open ebooks - just displayed a new window with a stuck progress bar. I then installed the version from the repo via Software Manager and found, though it may be an older version, it didn't have that problem. I'm running LM21 Cinnamon. I'd be interested in hearing if others have had a similar experience.

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.
