Catalog Generation Error

In the last couple of days, I have suddenly had an error when trying to generate a catalog of my library in MOBI format. I am running Calibre v 0.8.58 on Windows 7 Pro x64 with 6gb RAM. I "think" it is a problem with the # of books (~7000) because I can generate a catalog of a library that only has ~425 books in it.

Here is the Error Message (I cut out the Titles, Genres, Chapters and other similar items to shorten the message):

Any ideas on what my problem might be?
