uploading epub from Calibre

if ive managed to collect an epub which i think is of value to the library, how do I upload it?

seems a simple act of good faith is covered in mystery. If its good enough for Calibre reader and on my tablet why make it so difficult - its a great demotivator

You just find the file in your disk and upload it, following the guidelines.

If it's a book you "managed to collect", it's probably available elsewhere and not of much interest to the library, though.

well now i am confused. I thought a library here would be a location to source Epubs/pdfs or links to other locations where such a book might be read

now you say probably dont bother to upload cos if ive collected it, its probably available elsewhere

"not much interest to the library". Im only offering my contribution cos i thought it might benefit other READERS


thats really obtuse

and leaves me with the feeling - why should i put myself out (given the fact that Ive had to ask the question in the first place)

bad attitude here I think

as per above, ive followed the link https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=14163
and indeed had read it before and this is what lead me to post my question

It seems to confuse the issue of a newbie author trying to get his precious work into Epub format and published into the library (thats a whole different ball of wax - how to create an Ebook)

Now we are really dealing with the murky world of international copyright and how the uploader is responsible for indemnifying mobileread in case it gets sued

So in short MR doesnt really want anything unless it is fully sanitised. Casually uploading something i found from my Calibre is not welcome

Nuff said I wont bother

You're right. Publicly sharing a book still in copyright without the author's (or their heirs) consent is illegal. MobileRead is not a pirate site.

Whether the current copyright laws are fair or not is a whole other issue. But as long as they're valid, MR must obey them.
