New and need help

Hello, I've been using Calibre for awhile but probably have only used the basic features. I want to learn more about it now as my book collection is expanding.

I'm a mother of four grown children, have 3 small dogs and 3 parrots! I enjoy horror stories and lots of fiction. My favorite author is Stephen King. I am currently reading Justin Cronin's The Passage.

I bought a Kindle last year and am enjoying reading e-books now as opposed to paper books. Now that my library is getting really big I am confused on how to keep things organized. I read that Calibre make a copy when I add the book, Does this mean I can throw out the old copy? I donn't want to lose my books and ideally want a way to organize my collection and make back ups to an external hard drive. I tried using the search function and wasn't successful in finding my way. Is there a thread that covers this well that anyone could direct me to?

Go to FORUMS.

As you can see, we have MANY forums.

Go to KINDLE.

Or go to CALIBRE.
