Amazon Books

I had to reformat my computer this past week. I backed up my Calibre library, so I lost no books there. Through the years as I got books from Amazon I would download them and put them into Calibre courtesy of Alf. Since I reformatted I have bought a few books from Amazon that were free.
Now, here is my dilemma. When I install and run K4PC it is going to want to automatically download all of the hundreds of free books I have purchased over the years, right? I really really don't want to re-download and try to drudge through all of those books just to find the 5 or so I have gotten since reformatting so I can pull them into Calibre. Is there a way to tell K4PC to only download the books I have purchased in the past week?
I hate reformatting.

K4PC will only download the books you want it to download. It will not automatically download all your past purchases.

Hmm, ok, I guess I'll have to figure that out. When I opened K4PC it started just downloading books.
Thank!

Are you sure? I've never heard of that happening. It will show all of the books on your account, but they are all up in the "cloud" still. You should be able to sort by Date purchased, or Author, or Title to find the specific books you're looking for.
