Meeting Calibre

I agreed to review Max On Life by Max Lucado. It’s my first time to download in e-book format so I faced a challenge on what to do next in order to read the file. In times like this, Mr.Google becomes handy. I was introduced to Calibre- a comprehensive e-book software and the one stop solution for all your e-book needs. With Calibre I was able to transfer my ePub files to something more suited for reading on a home computer such as PDF.
Here’s a simplified instruction on how to run Calibre and convert your ePub files to PDF files I gleaned from eHow.
1. Download Calibre from the Calibre website ( Double-click its icon after downloading and following the on-screen instructions to install it. Click “Launch Calibre” on the final screen.
2.Click “Generic” under “Manufacturers” on the screen that appears and “Generic E-Ink Device” under “Devices.” Click “Accept,” then “Finish” to get to the main screen of Calibre. You only need to complete this setup process the first time you use Calibre.
3. Drag and drop your ePub file into the main window of Calibre. The main window is the one with the “Title”, “Author” and “Date” fields at the top of it. Alternatively, click “Add Books” at the top left of the screen, locate the ePub file on your hard drive and double-click it to add it to Calibre.
4.Highlight your ePub file in the main window of Calibre and click “Convert Books” at the top of the screen.
5. Click the “Output format” drop-down menu at the top right of the screen that appears and select “PDF.” Use this screen to make any other alterations you wish to the metadata of your ePub file, such as changing the title, author, cover image or font size. Click “OK” at the bottom of the screen to convert the file. The PDF conversion of your ePub file will now appear in its parent folder.
I started reading Max on Life on ePub form and I’m enjoying it. Next time, I plan to download Bangkok Bank’s ePub file on life insurance types so that I could take time to study it and choose the best life insurance type that suits well for my family.
Happy Sunday to all!
