e-book converter and library management

Calibre is meant to be a complete e-library solution. It includes library
management, format conversion, news feeds to ebook conversion as well as
e-book reader sync features.

Calibre is primarily a ebook cataloging program. It manages your ebook
collection for you. It is designed around the concept of the logical book,
i.e. a single entry in the database that may correspond to ebooks in several
formats. It also upports conversion from a dozen different ebook formats to
LRF and EPUB. A graphical interface to the conversion software can be
accessed easily by just clicking the "Convert E-books" button.

Supported input formats are: MOBI, LIT, PRC, EPUB, ODT, HTML, CBR, CBZ, RTF,

Calibre has a modular device driver design that makes adding support for
different e-reader devices easy. At the moment, it has support for the
SONY PRS 500/505/700 and the iPhone (with the stanza reader software).
Syncing supports updating metadata on the device from metadata in the library
and the creation of collections on the device based on the tags defined in
the library view. If an book has more than one format available, calibre
automatically chooses the best format when uploading to the device.

Calibre can automatically fetch news from a number of websites/RSS feeds,
format the news into a ebook and upload to a connected device. There is
support for generating LRF/EPUB ebooks. The ebooks include the *full*
versions of the articles, not just the summaries.

Calibre has also a built-in ebook viewer that can display all the major ebook
