Using Calibre and completely impressed

I finally downloaded Calibre this morning and configured my daily readings of Newspapers to try it out, loaded in NY Post and Daily News Politics, Jets, and Mets to start with, took it out and purposely didn't buy the paper this morning to give it it's first run. I have to say 2 HUGE Thumbs up

I love the links within the feeds that I can read it like I would online, love the customizations, I need to tweak a couple more things to get it just right....namely the best filetype to download as, and the best location to minimize the amount of moves to replace the articles daily.

I definitely want to thank the creator, this has just brought my reader up a HUGE notch.

great. it really has come a long way. it used to crash on me almost every time I opened it. now its doing much better in its current version. it's a great program. needs a facelift though.

Calibre is wonderful. I use it to read the NY Times on the Kindle 2.

How does one navigate through the paper with the Sony PRS-600 and the Sony PRS-300?

On the K2, one uses the 5-way controller to either move forward or backward by articles or to bring up a section listing that gives you direct access to the articles. Can you do all this with touch interface on the PRS-600 or with the buttons on the Sony PRS-300?
