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!
Expired books have DRM.
Use the Quality check Plugin to test your Library.
(I bet you can figure out which check to run under the Check EPUB structure section )
The positive results will be displayed (the search bar will now read:marked:epub_drm).
From there, you can decide what you want to do:
1)Delete the EPUB format (leaving the Library entry) You might want to use the List to first: Mark them all as 'read' if you track that.

2)Delete the Book and Library entry (a basic Delete)

3) something else
