Changes in this release:
- Add a Download from Goodreads option to allow retrieving book count from books that have a Goodreads identifier
- If word count is disabled (i.e. only page count) allow download of page count for any book regardless of formats
- Attempted workaround for Qt issue on Mac where some books would crash calibre.
See the previous thread page for detailed discussion, thanks to those of you who tested the beta and gave feedback.
For users deciding to use the new feature of Goodreads page counts, you might consider using a new page count column. That will make it easier for you to see which books it has successfully downloaded an "actual" page count for. If you need to switch to a different Goodreads edition (if the one you are linked to has no page count) then you will find the latest version of the Goodreads Sync
plugin useful as it has a "Switch edition" feature.
When calibre 0.8.40 is released you can configure your Kindle device plugin to use the actual value from your pages custom column when generating the APNX files when you send a book to your Kindle as per the screenshot below.
