That's just strange to hear. My first attempt at using Calibre was as a reader for a netbook (years ago), and I found it awful. Around the holidays this year I used Calibre to set up a used ereader for a relative, checking books out in the reader now and then, and it seemed only a little improved. The whole process of searching out serviceable ereading software for Windows was bafflingly difficult, but eventually someone here recommended FBReader, with tons of options and user-configurable keyboard shortcuts. If you're already using Calibre as your library and only read on your Windows machine occasionally, though, I can see the built in reader being convenient.

when it converts books where do the physical converted copies go and which version is then in my shown in my calibre.
how do I clean out the books from my ebook folder without moving the ones calibre has created when I have no idea which ones they are.
can I just put all my books into calibre then select convert all to mobi and be able to find all the mobi files including the ones it didnt need to convert or do I have to pick my way though.
how do I select a mass of books IN ORDER for a series to add and have them actually go to calibre in order so I dont have to renumber ever damn one as they all get jumbled.
how do I add books to an android tablet not on the list

I think a lot of us could use a less comprehensive program that handles all of the above in a simpler fashion.
