Thanks for this tip!!

I am going to use dropbox as my main Calibre folder, and set up auto import through Calibre. Then, I can access any book with any device that is authorized to access my dropbox account.

At least I think that is how it works. I have to wait until it finishes uploading to the cloud. My husband came downstairs and said I was hogging all the bandwith again. Oh well. I now have 10 gb on dropbox and my library is 7 gb. Probably time to go in and delete all read books (tag=0read0). I want to leave the entry so I know I have already read the book, but I sure don't need to save the book.

Go to the Calibre download page:

and click the "Portable" link.
Ah! Thanks for clearing that up. I was hoping it was an iOS app.

I have my Calibre folder in Dropbox. It will update automatically.

Was thinking if I ever get too full I could make a separate Calibre folder on my hard drive (not in Dropbox) for my books that I've already read.
