Thanks for responding, in retrospect I left out a few salient points of information.
- I'm working on a mac, with Snow Leopard OSX. Checked my trash, didn't see anything resembling a calibre folder or library.
- My eReader software on my iPad is Stanza.
Hope this helps subsequent answers!
Thanks again to everyone.
