How to add books wirelessly?

I understand there are many ways to add books to the Koboreader but they are via the cable. Closest i have found, to do it wirelessly is to upload to my Dropbox and download using the reader's browser. This takes many steps, any other way to go about it with just a click or two?

Is there some Kobo equivalent to the Kindle's USBNetwork hack, allowing you to ssh in over WiFi?

Are your books in Calibre? If so one option is to use Calibre's built-in content server.

If you set the content server as your home page in the browser, and have a browser tile on your Kobo's home page, then it is just one tap from the homepage to see your list of books available from the content server, one more tap to download.

the best way is to use Calibre it is one of the best and simple to use. Many options many features, one of which is the server that can be accessed via the home wifi network and with password protection from any wifi access point via the internet, direct IP connection. Works well manages all your books and shelves. There are more peeps on here who can advise as to how to use and set up your Calibre program. One of which for shelve creation, is PeterT who has instructions on how to set that up. I think its in the developers corner. If PeterT is reading this he will most likely be able to direct you exactly as to where to go.

regards

There is Calibre option to use it as web server to download books over your Internet connection using readers web browser. I can't tell you how to details as I have never done this.

Thanks all, seems Calibre is the way to go. I actually am using it for the downloads and pretty sure have not explore enough. Keen to set up the web server, will do that later today but not quite sure if the ereader's browser can set homepage? Was looking at that before, didnt see any lead to it.

You're welcome. An extra pair of eyes hardly ever hurts... unless you're seen with your mistress a dear old friend you just happened to run into on the way home from a night on the prowl prayer meeting!
