How to remove double/duplicate books in library?
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE QUESTION NO LONGER REGARDING THE PLUGIN "FINDING DUPLICATES" (I want to know if something like this is possible with the default calibre!)
right now I have "find duplicates" installed but why is it not called find & delete duplicates...
anyway right now I have around a 1000 books that are a duplicate after I moved books from library 1 to library 2!
after finding duplicates its:
Book C etc!
how can I delete one: A, B, C, etc??? without having to do the 1000 books manually!
with or without " find duplicates!"
ok now I deleted all the books that were double in library 2 then added the books from library 1 to 2 again!
but damn is there no easier way?

There may be "duplicates" with the same author and title, but they may be very different. One of them may be much better looking than the other. There is no way for a plugin to figure out which is the best. You have to check manually and decide.
