MacOS Mojave Books App and Calibre

Apologies if this has already been reported on. I've been in the habit of transferring ebooks from Calibre to an iPad Mini (now my main eBook Reader) via WiFi and Calibre Companion. The books would then also be available for download to other IOS devices with iCloud sync. Tinkering around today with both Calibre and the Books App running on my iMac, I tried drag and drop from Calibre to the Books App Library Window. Success! The books copied over flawlessly and within a few minutes also appeared in the IOS Books App on the Mini for download from iCloud when I'm ready to read them. If necessary, they could then be air dropped or messaged to another Apple device on a different account or forwarded by email to get them on to a Kobo etc. This renders all the more complicated other transfer methods redundant for me and certainly beats the old iTunes.

I think this has been a feature since Apple introduced iBooks on the Mac. Or am I missing something?
Anyway, glad people find stuff to get excited over!
