    Dude!! Way to go.. I hope your connection is stable, because I am downloading the whole da-yum shebang. I'm probably going to end up with some duplicates, but I don't have the time to sit and sort through them right now.

    Thank you so much for setting this up.

    He has almost 8 times as many books as I have! Ya think?! :)

    I'm set till I retire I think..even if there as some authors there that I don't know about. It'll be fun browsing his catalog.

    Hey krazynavybiker, here's a request for ya. Can you track down ebooks by an author by the name of Jim Corbett? Late 1800's to early 1900's. Books dealt with hunting of Maneaters (Tigers and Leopards predominantly) in the jungles of Northern India. I own all of them in hardcover or paperback, but would love to have them in softcopy too. Makes for excellent rainy day reading. Note: Do not read these while camping in Indian jungles. Every single sound sets your nerves on edge. I speak from experience on this one. :facepalm:

    When ever I add new books they will only be added to the epub and mobi folders. I will not be adding new books to the zip folders, just go back through the thread to find out what books are not in the zip folders if you want to stay up to date with everything I have.

    So I know this is terrible to ask. :facepalm:

    But is there anyway to make a new folder for the new additions...yes I know that is so bad to ask!!
     
  13. krazynavybiker

    krazynavybiker Ultra Member Verified Member ECF Veteran

    I would do that but as the new additions folder grows it would start to eat away at space. The reason is I would have to have 3 of each file 1 for the epub, 1 for the mobi and 1 for the new additions. For my sanity I need to keep it down to 2 files for each book. The folders you guys are seeing are the folders my Calibre created. After I add a new book to the software it converts it and then put it in the proper folder.

    I hope all that was not just a bunch of mumble jumble, I've been knocking back colds ones for the past few hours :facepalm:

    Well I know how to take them off the computer and put them on the Kindle. It's like moving them from drive to another.

    I would like to know how to move them from the Kindle to the computer though.

    You should beable to just plug your device up to your computer via usb and drag and drop. That's both ways. I'll see what I can find on that.
