Hey DoctorOhh, thanks again for all your help yesterday over in the PlugIn forum. I spent WAY too much time having fun with kiwidude's plugins yesterday.
I'm an old procedural programmer back in school to upgrade my skills, so taking apart and looking at epubs has been one fun way to practice. That being said, after using some of the plug-ins yesterday, I have to agree that the plugins make working with Calibre a whole new world.
What I'm actually leaning toward doing FIRST, is taking some of the cheap "50 greatest novel" type of books, splitting them out, then making them part of a "series" with the original book name. It should be a fun exercise in playing with ePubsplit.
