Here are my contributions today. A Christian Romance Leave It to Chance by Sherri Sand
http://www.amazon.com/Leave-It-Chanc...e+It+to+Chance

Then one for Halloween. This grabbed my attention for I have never read the author before. Husband Rehab by Curtis Hox

Josie Bran has a great idea to keep her sister's husband from messing up the living room: Husband Rehab. She's a witch who can brew spells, but she never uses her craft in public. She takes matters into her own hands and offers marital therapy for a few lucky men. When her old crush, Lennox Cruz, comes asking for help, she can't imagine why. He's perfect. Josie falls for him again as she pretends to provide therapy. In the end she must make a fateful decision: help Lennox love his evil wife, or help him escape her.

No, I usually do. Unless I cannot find them or really like the new cover better (which is rare).

Even too small images which don't look so hot on my PC usually look fine on my Sony. And I added Fantastic Fiction to the auto grab sources in Calibre, so I don't always have to track down the images myself.

Some of my favorite stepbacks are hard to find. And I hate trying to scan them because it can damage the paperback. Amanda Quick's were my favorite because they had more than just the standard clench hold. Several scenes were depicted. Here is her Rendezvous stepback

For me, these are "Valiente viento salvaje" (I didn't like it), "Trueno salvaje" (that widow trying to lose her maidenhood) and "Ángel".... Some of the first romance books (not harlequin) I read.

I don't think I've read them. I know I've read some of hers but I think it was a medieval romance. In my youth I only read medieval and some westerns. I have them on my buy list for tomorrow for when I get my money.

And tip of the day goes to.... library addict ! I did not know that you could add auto sources. I'm definitely going to look in to this, usually I just chuck the authors name and book title into google images and then look through what it spits up choosing the best size cover.

I think the feature is part of the Fantastic Fiction plugin. It's been a while (and several versions of Calibre) since I did it and don't quite remember how. But now when I click on Download Cover on the Edit Metadata screen, Fantastic Fiction is one of the sources it grabs from.

I think Fiction DB has a plug in, too, but their covers are ofter too small. I do like their site for missing blurbs.

Totally agree!! I went searching for how to as soon as I read that. You need to download the FictionDB plugin to get it as a source. I grabbed the Barnes&Noble plugin as well since they generally have better image quality than those returned by Amazon.

While you're out there grabbing plugins, make sure you get ePubSplit too. Absolutely awesome for breaking up bundles!!!!!

You also get that award. I didn't know they had that one. The bundles in the same series I might keep, but the others by different authors is another story.

Yeah, I've got the B&N one as well. But for reissues, Fantastic Fiction is better at returning the original covers. Not always. I still have to manually search at times.

I found 2 more very nice plugins!

- View Manager - allows you to save multiple column sorts which can include multi-column bidirectional sorts. I've already saved 6 sorts that I run all the time.

- Open with - allows you to select an epub and specify which program to open it. Now epubs can be opened with Sigil and covers open with GIMP by selecting it in Calibre (which is generally where I identify the problem that needs tweaking). Really nice, it saves a lot of navigation for those of us with large Calibre libraries.

I feel like I just got a major Calibre upgrade tonight!
