can i sync bookmarks from Stanza in Calibre?

Hey guys, i'm a newby in this ebooks world, i have an iphone and i've been reading about the best ways to read on it. I found 2 things, Stanza for iphone and Calibre for my PC. I have already send some books from Calibre to Stanza, but what i really want to know is if i can sync my bookmarks, i've been reading a little bit on my iphone, but when i get home i'd like to continue reading on my PC. Any ways to do this?
Thanks a lot in advance for your replies!

No you cannot do that. You can only sync bookmarks if the reading app supports it directly. Examples on iOS of apps that do this are iBooks and the Kindle reader.

If you use iBooks you can sync without Calibre getting involved (it happens via iCloud). it is actually an option you can configure for iBooks under Settings. It is nice as you switch devices to see iBooks following the page you are currently reading.

Calibre can be integrated to iTunes for loading/deleting books in iBooks. You might want to read the Sticky on integrating iDevices with the Calibre.

Oops - no.

For some reason I was thinking I thought you said iPhone and iPad.

You might want to think of using the Kindle app then. This has both iPad and Desktop versions. As long as they are both associated with the same Amazon account you shoud be able to sync between them (and a physical Kindle if you happen to have one).
