Any way i can sync notes from my kindle paperwhite back to calibre ?

After i get through a book i would like to sync my notes from the kindle back to calibre. Is that possible ? I know one way is to select the book from kindle and save the mobi file and re-add it to the calibre library.

I would like to know if there is an auto sync feature to copy the notes.
Thanks.

My Annotations plugin can fetch the annotations from the My Clippings.txt file and add them to a column in calibre.

Are you sure that saving the book that way works? While I don't have a Kindle, I pay attention to the handling of annotations and highlights on the different devices. I have never heard of a method sounding like before.

Although the OP was asking about Calibre, Kindle Mate is another way to save notes from your ereader.

Thank you for your reply guys. Yes i was asking for calibre. I would like to copy all the books and the notes to either my PC or a new kindle. So that it can be shared with others.

I've been using the Annotations plugin for a few years and really like it. It allows you to fetch annotations from a connected kindle and adds them to the ebook in calibre.

If you want a separate file for your notes, they are automatically added to the MyClippings file, and you can just open that from your calibre library (after connecting your device), then copy/paste as needed.

Thanks Jane that was helpful. So once it is added to my library, if i send that book to another kindle will the annotations be added as well ?

The Annotations plugin fetch the annotations from the device and put them in a column in the calibre library. It cannot send them back to the device as annotations. At the most, they can be added to the metadata for the book.
