Thumbs up The Modern Reader - A guide to getting more out of Calibre in Windows 7

Hi all, (First off, this is not a praise thread for Windows 7 )

This will be a ongoing project of mine to customize win7 and calibre such that the already awesome software is more tightly integrated and easier to use. I also want to highlight advanced features that a casual user may not otherwise use. I will post various customizations in individual posts further in this thread and list the permalink for those posts here. Here goes nothing...

Issues : (also on my blog)
  1. Jumplist for Caliber (With multiple libraries)
  2. Adding Calibre's library to the search indexer and effectively using it

In the think tank (very long term so please be very very patient)
  1. Integrating Calibre with Windows 7's Federated search (this is a long term goal as it will require me to write an app to bridge Win7 and calibreDB unless caibre can provide ATOM/RSS see Open Search. see intro video)
  2. Quick Launch utility with keyboard shortcut to quickly open an ebook in the correct reader. This would actually be already there if the above is implemented. (see ticket)


Please let me know how u like it and suggestions are welcome
