Hey G, I read through that but I'm afraid I still don't know what it means. I need to move everything to a different catalog? What does that do?

You don't "move" anything to a catalog. A catalog just, well, catalogues your books.

Export your books in CSV format as described in the sticky, then open that file in Excel.

One of the fields that can be exported is #mm_date_read. I infer there's a way to put my last date that I read a book in Calibre, but I can't find a way to do this.

I suspect that this is a case of when the computer analogy of real things becomes the real thing, and not the analogy.

A catalog or directory was originally a list of names and other information about persons or other entities, like books. Possibly on a sheet of paper, a sign, in a book or on a set of cards in a box/boxes. Not the actual persons or books, just references to them.

The word catalog or directory in computerspeak is often used to name the position in some hierarchical virtual tree with catalogs within catalogs, or folders/directories within folders/directories, that in some ways mimic the catalogs and directories of old.

In calibre the catalog tools are used to create a list of the books, in different formats. The old type of catalog. Not actually create a computer style catalog or directory to store the books. Calibre can do that as well, of course, but that is called "save to disk".

The words "format", "file" and "folder" are other examples where the computerspeak meaning has taken over.

#mm_date_read is a custom field created under Marvin XD for storing the last read date retrieved from Marvin. That field is populated when the Marvin XD plugin is running, and you either click the Refresh custom columns button, or right-click on the book in the Last read column, then select Apply to 'Last read' column.
