New Nook and Calibre question
Probably a dumb Nook / Calibre question...
I just bought a new Nook and I am wondering one thing...
What is the best way to use Calibre with my Nook?
I know that the Nook isn't the greatest for finding books and organizing books, so I want to be able to use Calibre to do that. I have about 2000 books on my home PC with everything entered the way I like on Calibre(covers, tags, and metadata), so it's really easy to find a book by topic or series or author. I want to be able to use Calibre from my Nook to search through my library, for example, search for books by a certain tag or series. What is the easiest way to do this? I know Calibre has a Content Server, to access it as a web page. So, is my only option to copy my entire library over to my Nook and then use Calibre's Content Server to basically search for the book I want to read next and then go to My Documents folder on my Nook and try and find that book?
Or is there a more simple way to do this?
I have read different posts on people "softrooting" their Nook to do this...I have no clue how to do anything like that! And it's a brand new Nook with the newest firmware and it seems that there can be issues trying to root that version.
I just want to be able to sit on my couch with my Nook and browse through my library via Calibre.

Not sure if this answers your question or not, but what I do is simply hook my nook up to my computer through the USB cable. Calibre then sees my nook and I can choose the books I want loaded onto my nook and choose "transfer to device" in Calibre's interface. The books are then transferred to the nook and show up in the "My documents" folder on the nook.
Hope this helps!

I use calibre as long term storage for my book, and my nook as where I keep the books I think I might even want to look at in the near future. I have over 1400 book in calibre and the thought of wading through 140 pages to find the one I want to read makes me shudder.

Sorry to bump up an old thread. But i am expecting to get my Nook soon in the mail, and wanted to get some info beforehand.
Can you sync your calibre library with the nook with wifi rather than plugging it in?
