2) Convert using KindlePreviewer
Result: Mobi/KF8 combo that shows the books cover, tagged as personal

3) Convert ePub to Mobi in Calibre with sharing option I mentioned above turned on
Result: Mobi file that shows the books cover, tagged as personal
Same experience here (did 1 and 3). I decided to go with option 3. Note that this is also being discussed in the Calibre forum (go to 2nd page. First is a guy who is having problems that we did to have)
