Exporting Metadata Summaries?

I'm relatively new to using Calibre to manage my ebooks, so there may be an obvious answer to this.

One problem I have with my Kindle's large collection of books is that I sometimes forget what certain books are about and why I bought them or downloaded a sample. It would be great if there were some way to export Calibre's Metadata summaries to a file on the Kindle. That way I could quickly look up a book or sample and remind myself what it's about. Is there any way to do this?

It sounds like you want to use the Calibre facility for generating a catalog? You can do this for selected books and then load the results as a mobi file to the Kindle.

Thanks itimpi, creating a Mobi catalog looks to be exactly what I was looking for. Good times
