Kindle Reading position back to Calibre

Hi all

So I have been reading around about posting the reading status (%age or so) in table, and while it was apparently possible before, it is no more ?

So before the Last Page read was in the annotation but no more ?

So I have no way to keep track in Calibre about which books are read, not read, being read ?

Thanks for that

By default, Calibre Viewer will remember the last page read.
As for "read" and "not read", you could add a custom column (yes/no column).

Well, that's not the idea.

The idea is to read the book on my kindle, and when I plug it to my PC, sync it back to Calibre (which manages the entire collection of ebooks)

not simple. and also what would you expect calibre to do if you connect a different kindle which reports a different last page read ?
and is it to support getting last page from every supported device , across all formats, or just kindles ?

Well, I don't know but I'd like it at least to report if the book was read or not. Sometimes I start a book to notice I already read it... a d this is because I read from kindle and iOS app...
So yes, I could use the Amazon sync, but I'd prefer ic Calibre could do something equivalent

Probably going to have to create a custom column with the yes/no/null value and assign each of those to read/unread/reading (or whatever you want). But you'll probably have to manually update it.

Or you could create a couple of custom columns with just yes/no options.

But overall, I don't believe there is a way to "automatically" do this.

My #read column is a Date. That seemed more relevant than just a Yes.
(I also use a <2000 date to indicate: Abandoned, not my cuppa)
