Post Hello from Ireland

Hi all... I just found this site because I've been searching for tools to help me organise my massive eBook collection. The majority of it is PDB format, because for many years I used Palm handhelds. (Aside: Anyone want to buy a Palm TX? ) I am now using a Kindle.

I've now found Calibre eBook Management, but am having a lot of trouble because it keeps bringing in the books with the Author Name and Title fields swapped. And when you have about 25k books across several formats, editing these manually is a bit of a pain! So if someone would be kind enough to welcome me by pointing me in the direction of help on this, I'd be grateful.

Great forums - I can't believe I never found it before!

Hi Lynn and welcome to MobileRead. Can't answer your question and, if someone doesn't come along soon to do so, try posting your question in the Calibre forum
