Checking book descriptions without connecting to the internet?

Hello! I use calibre to download book descriptions before loading them to my paperwhite and I don't have access to wifi all the time so I'm wondering if there is a way/hack to check description without the kindle asking for a connection.

Where are the descriptions located that you want to read on the Kindle?

What firmware version on your Paperwhite?
Have you already jailbroken it?

My paperwhite's firmware is 5.3.0

I just want the book summary that is gathered after downloading my ebooks' metadata from calibre to show up on the book description on my paperwhite.

It can't be done. The description that's displayed on that page comes from the Amazon bookstore, so it's only available for:

1. A book that's been bought from Amazon (or at least, a book with an ASIN which matches a book at Amazon).
2. When you have an internet connection.

hi HarryT, thanks for the reply. so you mean even when the time comes that the firmware 5.3.0 for the paperwhite can be jailbroken, seeing book descriptions from books not bought from amazon is still not possible?
