I'd like to find all expired books (no idea how many) and delete them but I have a rather large library and didn't want to have to try to open each book. So, I wanted to know if there is a way to tell if a book is expired without trying to view it?

Thanks!
Create a custom field for the date the books are due to expire. Then you can find them easily. I know this won't work for the books you have now in Calibre, but it will work for future books. You will have to manually type in the date of expiry.
