removing books from calibre

ok this is probably a really dumb question but do you guys remove your books from calibre once they have been uploaded to the reader? When I open calibre I have about 300 books in the library it says. Sould I be removing them or are they ok here? I read that calibre makes a folder with all your books in it but I have not been able to access them (perhaps I am just not finding the correct folder).

They are OK in the library and you should leave them there. You can later use Calibre to convert them to other formats, if you buy a different reader. You can use it to keep or update metadata in Calibre or on your reader (series name, publisher, special tags - like whether you've read it or how good it was.)

You don't need to access the Calibre library directly. If you ever want a copy of a book for a friend, etc. Highlight the book and use Save to Disk.

Why would I want to delete my ebooks? What would happen if I lost my reader?

I leave my ebooks in calibre's library -- and I leave calibre's library alone. Please read the link in my .sig for a long but hopefully informative rant on the subject.
