I very much enjoy Calibre. I will ask my dogs what they think of it when they wake up from their naps. I suspect they do not like it as much as I do, but that's only because it doesn't shoot out dog treats when it opens.

Indeed it is the best doc conversion software to be found, and it has an excellent reading interface. But here it ends.
As for the rest, it is catastrophic.
It would have been so simple, so obvious, to program this "book manager" as any library, book shop, librarian and book-lover classify their books and have been doing all over the world and in any language, that is to display titles starting with the surname, then the name, then the series if any, and then the title - with the article in its due place and not thrown out or at the end of said title.
.....
Oh Gawd, not again. Look go program your own if you don't like it.

I suspect you are correct.

There's a feature request thread somewhere around here, perhaps post this there and we'll see it in 0.9.12?

Neither one of my dogs have anything good to say about Calibre. Maybe because one is reading Silas the Bookstore Cat and the other is reading The Fire Cat.

Maybe it's NOT Calibre, but their reading material.

I was just thinking it's been a while since our last Whine and Dash. Not a very substantial effort, though, I must say. It was a bit pitchy.

Actually, it's not bad. It's just the OP is idiot (troll is used wrong here so I'll go with idiot as troll means going onto IRC to try to find someone to cyber with).
