This is great, I'm amazed it's not getting more coverage - it's the only thing that allows those of us who use Amazon's Personal Documents service to send books by email to keep last page read synced between iPad/iPhone/Kindle whilst getting the nice AZW3/KF8 on the Kindle whilst getting the nice cover! Previously you had to either use old mobi for the Kindle (thereby losing the nice AZW3) OR get KF8 on Kindle (but no cover) or use side loading to get books onto all 3 devices (pain, plus you'd lose Last Page Read syncing if you enabled Facebook/Sharing)

One question, is it worth me running the new 0.2 on my Kindle again, even though I ran 0.1 on all my books yesterday?

Thanks again

Yes, with new option -o (overwrite).
Benefits:
1) smaller thumbnail files
2) Personal tag will not cover titles of your books anymore

Brilliant, thanks.

Any chance of making a Mac app version?

Didn't work for me - I ran it with -o and -v across my Kindle again, and it just ran the output for 20 books this time (I have around 350 on there), and even then all the books (including the 20 it listed) still have the "Personal" banner.

To clear up:
1) This version does NOT remove Personal tag
2) This version SHIFT COVER UP leaving empty space below to avoid Personal tag overlapping cover. Check above image.

Ok, get it now, however it still only ran for 20 out of 300+ books for me, even with -o set.

Default output was changed to be less verbose. Old behavior is with option -v
Could you run app with -ov option? Paste sample output results here.

For those books listed above, it's worked in the sense of moving the cover up above "Personal", but for some reason it's only doing those 20 books (it did all 300 no problem yesterday using version 0.1)

I assume, that rest of your books has azw extension. Isn't it?
AZW files are old Mobi6 and covers for them should be generated by Paperwhite itself.

Yes, all the ones it didn't do are .azw

All the ones it did do are .azw3

I understand now. Was getting confused as version 0.1 seemed to output a line for every book, but 0.2 seems to only output a line for .azw3 files

thanks

AZW files are ignored now since I noticed that cover thumbnails files generated by this tool are not used by Kindle Paperwhite for AZW files.

So that means for .azw files, we can't fix the "Personal" tag hiding part of the cover?
