I also suspect that Baen uses calibre to convert books into the ePUB format, at least the books I converted using calibre ended very similar to the books I directly downloaded from Baen. Since I have over 500 books, I would prefer to do the transfer in a batch mode and not one book at a time.
I think the only place where the original "Date Acquired" data on my old books is, is the Created date in the directory where they currently reside. So either I modify the calibre import functionality to use the import source file Created date in the Date column, or I do a directory listing of my current directory and try to transfer the Created date somehow into the Date column.
Calibre does NOT use file/folder info on import.
So (bulk) change the date (it will be the date first added to Calibre anyway
