Hi, New To The Group

I've been following and reading for quite awhile before I bought my K3. I've had it for about a month and have been enjoying it with the 3.0.3 update, I at once found the page turning much, much faster. I haven't found a need to implement any other hack though.

I put a Decal Girl skin on it and purchased an inexpensive foam zip cover for it on Amazon. I like it, very much.

I use Calibre to convert books found in other places and the News function, which I didn't think I'd use much has proven very useful. I hope my meager $10 donation to Calibre has helped somehow.

I just put Linux Mint 10 on my eeePC Netbook and copied / pasted the code into the terminal. It worked flawlessly. By default it put a shortcut in my Office folder. Now the question I have is: What files or folders do I need to copy from my Windows machine to my Netbook to have all of my books in sync?

Thank you very much for all your help!

Welcome to MobileRead, Eric.

If you don't get a satisfactory answer here, you might try posting your question in the Kindle forum....

Copy the directory where you kept your ebooks on your windows machine and copy it to your netbook... and when you install Calibre on the netbook point to the same directory you copied and whala! All should be right in life
