Calibre is a free software program which makes it easy to organize your eBooks and send them to your device. Here is a refresher on how to add a book to Calibre!
First, you need to download the Calibre eBook library software, if you haven’t already. You can find it here:
Then you need to save your eBook file. I usually just download it and save it onto my desktop so I can find it later. A DRM-free book will download and save the same as any file would; there are no special procedures.
Now, open your Calibre library. Choose the big red ‘add to Library’ button. A file browser will pop up. From there, you can choose your file, select ‘ok’ and add away!
Now that it’s there, you can click the ‘edit metadata’ button to modify the tags for keyword searching, download a new cover or otherwise pretty up your new book. Happy reading!
