Sync from Kindle to Calibre library

Usually I receive new books from Amazon to my Kindle. Is there a way to copy the Kindle contents into the Calibre library? If not, consider this as a future feature. Thanks for such a great tool.

Certainly:
1.) Connect Kindle.
2.) Open Calibre
3.) Wait for Calibre to recognize Kindle
4.) Click Device
5.) Select books you want to send to Calibre
6.) Right-Click, "Add Books To Library"

Done.

Note, however, that if books have DRM, and you want to manipulate them in any way in Calibre, you'll need Apprentice Alf's DRM removal tool plugin. GIYF.

If you have Apprentice Alf's plugin installed, does the DRM issue get taken care of when you upload from your Kindle to Calibre, or do you need to 'convert' after upload?! Thanks

Upon upload. Means that with them installed, you work with un-restricted files inside Calibre, without additional steps. But, of course, if you already have some in Calibre, you'll need to convert them when you first add the plugins.
