Now may be a good time to convert your prc and pdb to ePub or kf8.
To paraphrase the bard: "Jesus, Mary & Elvis--That's a lot of books!"
So mass conversion of prc and pdb to mobi? I don't even want to think of clit and some kind of OEBC software for all those lits. I may have to not hate Calibre so much, at least temporarily; either that or write shell scripts to use the CLI versions of the converters. I was afraid of this answer. Shell scripts ... [shudder].
