I have a soft spot in my heart for SONY, since my first reader was a SONY, so http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~kovid/c...revision/12431

Would it be possible to have millsandboon.co.uk added? I read the thread and didn't see it requested yet.

I have contacted Mills & Boon. If they respond favorably then I will add their site.

Foyles UK, and Amazon ES/IT

Foyles has completely changed their site, so the current Foyles store plugin does not work. This will be fixed in the next calibre release (0.8.59).

Regarding Amazon Italy and Spain: could someone tell me if the store plugins are working? By "working" I mean that you can search for, find, and buy books. I can't test them much because one must "live" in one of the two countries before searching the site will work. My assumption has been that the sites work in the same way as the FR, DE, and UK sites, and it would be nice to know if my assumption is correct. Thank you.

I don't understand what you are asking for. All stores are plugins, and you can "opt in" or "opt out" of any store you want. Are you looking for something different from what already exists?

my getbooks feature isn't there?

I have a Macbook pro running 10.4.11, so I downloaded calibre 0.7.28, which I believe is the latest version that will work with my (old) computer. Please let me know if I should/could be running a newer version.

When I downloaded calibre for the first time (recently), there was no getbooks feature. I tried to find it, to no avail. Is there any way to get that function on my version of calibre?

I'm not very good with this kind of thing, but I would really appreciate the help!

Every version of Calibre adds new features or improves performance on older ones (OK! and fixes some creepy bugs )

Some of these use newer (programing) building blocks . Some of these blocks wont fit into older OS . Rather that hold back Calibre, the developers decided to hang a 'Sorry, you must update your OS/Computer, if you want to get these features.

Mills and Boon said yes, so the store will be added. It is too late for tomorrow's release, but it should be available in the release next week.

can an ipad run calibre by itself? Or does it need to be paired with a computer? Can I run two different versions of calibre, one on computer and one on the ipad? I want to make it so that the ipad has the getbook features and I can still switch my books from one device to another sing calibre. Is that possible?

No, Calibre cannot run on an iPad. Calibre only runs on Windows, Mac OSX or Linux based systems.

An iPad can interface to a Calibre library on on one of these OS for the purpose of loading books from the Calibre library.
