Nook SimpleTouch Shelf Manager

The library management for the SimpleTouch is clunky and horrendous to say the least, and it takes a lot of work to create shelves, and you are constantly having to check and recheck to make sure that you have the books where you want them. It would be great to be able to turn Tags and/or Series into Shelves for the Nook Simple Touch, similar to what the Kindle Collections plugin.

But it's better than nothing. And it's not mandatory to use it.

While your waiting try using the following four metadata download plugins.

Amazon
Goodreads
Fantastic Fiction
Barnes and Noble

They will usually give you a fair selection of covers to use during metadata download.

I have done. But I still have over 3000 books without cover. I look for books with titles in Spanish, and the result is not as good as being in English.

Better then nothing? Actually, I'd stick with the generic cover instead.

An image that small and that aspect ratio incorrect will look awful. Sometimes it takes a while to find the best possible cover I can using Google images and even then I sometimes have to make do instead of getting a cover image I like.

This plugin is a really bad idea unless you can give it a URL and it will go fetch the image and put it in as the cover. Then I'd agree it can be useful. But otherwise, bah!

leo.org dictionary

Hi, I'm Markus and new here. I love to read English books on the PC. As I'm German though, I have to look up words, esp. on older texts, in a dictionary all the time. LEO.ORG is a very good one, it's free and has an API. So, just wondering if, in the reader app, it would be possible to add a right mouse klick feature - "look up in dictionary", in settings add a "dictionary URL" field and on marking a word and right klicking it open up a new window with the dictionary in it? Or you could add the dictionaries to the dict.org field? Shouldn't be that difficult. I do code, mainly web stuff, but haven't got a clue how to get started here. Greets from Stuttgart, Germany. PS. LEO.ORG can do Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Russian -> German too.

Export list

Hi everyone,

I have this feeling this should already be possible, but I can't find anything.

I'd like to have a way to make a very simple list of all the books that are in my library, plus have the option to add specific metadata. Just a list, like in Excel or something:

book1 title author pages tags
book2 title author pages tags


Is there already a way to do this? I couldn't find it under 'sharing' or 'save to disk'.

Thanks for your help!
Michelle

Use the create catalog feature, dropdown arrow next to the Conversion icon. You can output your complete book list in many formats, csv (excel), epub, mobi etc..

Ah, thanks! I knew this was too simple not to exist ;-)

Is it possible to create a plugin for Calibre that identifies if metadata has been downloaded?

The search bar is perfect for this.

comments:false
ratings:false
author:unknown

The above are all examples of searches to find books with missing metadata. You can use the Walk Search History plugin to help navigate through various searches you may have tried.

Just wondering about the possibility of offering the ranking as integers OR stars. The star display takes a fair amount of column space while a single number would take less. (I'm trying to keep the view to just screen width, so no need for scrolling.) Also maybe allow ratings to expand it to show 0 (lowest) to 9 (top) ranked instead of 1-5 stars? I know I probably could make a custom column to show this. Thanks in advance for considering this.

Save Conversion Settings

I posted a "request" in the Conversion thread Save Conversion Settings, at the time I was thinking it would have to be implemented in Calibre core.

But The Ducks has made a suggestion that makes me wonder if my request could be implemented as a plug-in, if it were implemented via Borrow and Apply as per The Ducks suggestion - see post #4 and my response in #6.

Thanks BR

OK, have tried searching but can see this as a suggestion. I'd like something in Calibre that allowed me to pin a book from my library to Pinterest. Anyone?
