copy from one Calibre library to another

Is there an easy way to copy a book from one Calibre library to another? I wanted two libraries because right now I do a lot of reformatting that I hope I won't have to do once I find a good 9 or 10 inch device. I actually set the font size to 30 now! So the second library without the reformatting would then become my main Library once I get a new device. Or if anyone has any other suggestions on how to accomplish this, that would be great.

Highlight (select)
Right-click on them
Copy to Library (2 choices there)

Assumes you already have a second library on that machine

Thanks - that was just too easy. I always forget to check what's available on a right mouse click.

Actually, my libraries aren't on the same machine - I have calibre installed on 2 machines and the library is on a server so I can access the library no matter which machine I am using.

But it was available on the same machine

Remember, don't ever try and access the same library that way, from 2 places at the same time. results may happen

Well since I can't be two places at one time, I won't be accessing it from two places at once. Unless of course I leave the library open on one machine and forget and open it again on the other one later - which I may have done.

Cute Kitty is Marbles - who just crawled up on me again. At least I'm at the desktop and not my laptop - makes it a little easier to type. But she's not feeling well so I can't kick her off.
