    Free (nook/Kindle/iTunes/ePub) Exodus: Finding Freedom [Xtian Bible Study Advice]

    Exodus: Finding Freedom By Following God by Warren W. Wiersbe is another installment in his Wiersbe Bible Study series of study guides cum derived life lessons accompanying his BE series of bible commentary, this one covering the titular Old Testament volume, free for a limited time courtesy of Christian publisher David C. Cook.

    Currently free, probably just for the next couple of days @ B&N & Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK) & Google Play (available to Canadians) & iTunes (not available to Canadians), ChristianBook (DRM-free ePub hypothetically available to selected countries if they ever get around to allowing downloads of the freebies again), and possibly also other venues listed on the publisher's catalogue page. Price-drop-check linkage for Kobo if you're feeling optimistic.

    Description
    The book of Exodus chronicles the Israelites’ epic journey from slavery to freedom. Yet it’s also a journey plagued by fear, doubt, and distrust in God. Today the story remains the same, as a loving God continues to deliver broken people. This study takes an in-depth look at the Israelites’ difficult path to the Promised Land, and reveals the freedom found in trusting a faithful God. The Wiersbe Bible Study Series explores timeless wisdom found in God’s word. Based on Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s popular “BE” series, each study provides topical, relevant insights from selected books of the Bible. Designed for small groups, this eight-week study features selected commentaries from Be Delivered, engaging questions, and practical applications, all designed to help you connect God’s word with your life.

     
    How to send books in an unique file?

    Hello everyone i'm new.

    I've learned english by myself my natal laguage is french (i'm not french i'm belgian) so if i made mistake in english i'm sorry.

    I have a Sony Reader PRS-T2

    When i use "send on reader" (i don't know the name in english) to send book on my reader a thing that i don't want happen.

    It create different kind of files (some by author name, by series names etc). *** More detail in the Post scriptum)

    I have limited number of pages in my reader's library (let's say, for example, i can only have 3 pages with 10 files so 30 files) but i've enough memory to send thousand book.

    The thing is that while using the option to send books on my reader it create a lot of files (and at the same times a lot of page that i can even acces or see). (Let's say it creates 40 files on my 30 files possible -> i won't be able to acces of see the 10 last)

    When i send my book from my computer it send the books in an unique file called "Default".

    I wanna send the books from calibre using the option to do that and send all books at a time in that file (or one i've created).

    Is there anyone who could explain me how to do? Have you encounter the same problem?



    ***PS: i've send all Terry Pratchett books (lets say i've send 11 books) on my reader. Here are some example of files automaticly created (some of them even include book that are into other files...)

    -Discworld (10 books)
    -Fantasy (10book)
    -Fantasy fiction (3 books)
    -Humour (1 book)
    -Youth (1 book)
    -Defautl (1 book)

    Short Fiction Turgenev, Ivan: A Desperate Character and Other Stories. v1, 20 Sept 2017

    Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883) has been described as the first Russian writer known to the Western world, and the only one with a European outlook and sympathies. He was the second son of a cavalry officer and a rich property owner, and lived in the period before and after the emancipation of serfs in Russia.

    Constance Garnett (1861-1946) was an English translator whose translations of 70 nineteenth century Russian classics introduced them to the English speaking public. Her work has been both praised and criticised.

    Edward Garnett (1868-1937) was Constance Garnett's husband, and a writer, critic, literary editor, and supporter of D.H. Lawrence and Joseph Conrad.

    These six short stories were written between 1847 and 1881, and give a moving (and sometimes horrifying) description of life in various parts of Russia.

    The source text was taken from the University of Adelaide ebook library, and checked against the 1899 Heinemann edition on the Internet Archive. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotation marks, replaced italics, diacritics, and scene breaks, and made changes to spelling, punctuation, and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.

    Alternative Method for Syncing Books Between Calibre and Marvin

    Via a PM, I got a question about how I sync my e-books between Calibre and Marvin, given that the associated plugin has apparently been misbehaving in recent years. I'm answering in this public post because I get this question periodically.

    My solution is very simple: I store my Calibre library in a cloud account on my desktop machine. I have used Dropbox for that purpose, and also Google Drive. (Alternating them, not simultaneously.) Both work very well.

    This means that all my e-books are automatically synced across all of my traditional computers as well as mobile devices. (I have a desktop machine, a laptop – both Windows –, 4 tablets and 2 mobile phones.)

    So, for example, whenever I wish to load a book from Calibre on my iPad or iPhone, I simply open the Google Drive app on the iPad or iPhone, open the Calibre folder there (all authors are listed nicely alphabetically by Calibre in their respective folders), I find the book I want, I tap it, choose "Open in...", and I open the book in Marvin. (On Android, I open it in Moon+ Reader Pro.)

    Of course, it might also work the other way round: if your e-reader supports accessing Dropbox or Google Drive, you can simply access the Calibre folder directly in your e-reader. In terms of Marvin, though, this is one of the ways it's become broken recently, in that although I can load the Calibre folder from Google Drive in Marvin, Marvin is unable to actually load books from it (it does work with Dropbox); it works the other way round from the Drive app to Marvin, however, which is good enough for me. I think Google Drive changed their protocols recently, and apparently Marvin hasn't been updated to handle the new protocol. Well, I don't care, as long as I can load books from the Drive app into Marvin. It amounts to much the same thing, to me. Whether I spend a few seconds tapping in the Drive app or in the Marvin app to locate a particular book from Calibre, makes no difference to me.

    I'm no friend of storing my entire Calibre library (the actual EPUB files) on each and every computer and device I own. (Precisely because I have so many of them!) It's perfectly enough for me to have Calibre installed only on my desktop machine, while on my mobile devices, I only load the few dozen books or so into Marvin that I'm currently reading or intend to read soon. So, on my mobile devices, I only access Calibre books on an "on-demand", "as-needed" basis; I certainly don't wish to have the entire Calibre library downloaded onto my mobile devices; mobile storage is precious! And even if it weren't, it just makes no sense to me to replicate the full copies of my Calibre library on all of my computers and mobile devices. Nope, two copies of it seem perfectly enough – one on my Windows desktop machine, and the other in the cloud.

    This may not be exactly what you yourself may desire in terms of cooperation between Calibre and Marvin, but I have never bothered with any Marvin plugins for Calibre, Calibre companions, etc., etc., precisely because they tend to get broken sooner or later if they're not properly maintained by the plugin developers (typically unpaid volunteers, so you can't really blame them).

    But, simply storing your entire Calibre library in your private cloud account is a bulletproof method allowing you to have your entire Calibre library always at your fingertips – on any computer, any mobile device, and even when you're away from your computer where Calibre is installed. Thanks to the cloud, Calibre doesn't even need to be running, no plugins are needed and everything works fully automatically without you having to do anything in addition to using Calibre normally as you always would.

    Hope this helps! :)

     
    Missing Books When Sync One Drive

    I just loaded the Companion and I notice a difference in the count of books between what Calibre shows and what Companion shows.
    When I looked for a specific author I found some authors missing. I did find a item common to some of the missing books. I added a new column in Calibre for extra information I wanted in the data base. Any authors that had a book that used this new column is missing.

     
    Cannot email books from calibre to paper white

    Hey guys,

    New to this forum and hoping someone can help me with this because I have tried everything. So I bought a paper white second hand and had a few books downloaded in pdf on my mac so I decided to download calibre to convert them to mobi and put them on my paper white.

    For some reason my device doesnt show up when plugged in so my only other option was to email them to the device and for the life of me I dont know why this isnt working. I set up a hotmail specifically for sending the files and I have triple checked the kindle email is correct. I have also added the sender email to allowed devices on my amazon account.

    It says that the emails have been sent but I cannot find them anywhere! Not under books/ docs on my device or on my amazon account. Have tried syncing my kindle but nothing comes in. Please tell me I am missing something obvious because I am starting to wonder is it because my paper white is second hand? Although I set it up as new when I recieved it so it was obviously reset to factory settings.

    Any help is appreciated :)

     
    File Name Template help

    Hello, I am trying to use conditional text in the file name template to apply a different template to only certain books.

    I use Calibre for ebooks and manga, and all of the manga is in .cbz format (and tagged with "Manga").
    My goal is to have all manga saved to a separate location on android devices when imported using Calibre Companion and renamed in a way that traditional manga reading applications will parse properly (Folder with the series name, with all entries in that series inside and named "Series" - "Chapter #" and then the [Scanlation Group] (I have a custom column for that field).

    I achieved this by setting the cbz file type in calibre companion to save to a different location (the local folder my manga app looks for) and using the following line in the Template Field:
    {series}/{series} - Chapter {series_index} [{#scanlators}]

    It worked great creating a file that looks like "MangaName - Chapter 5 [ScanlatorGroup]" inside a folder named named "MangaName".
    Awesome! Any manga reading app will parse that perfectly.

    Now that the test worked, I tried using the conditional commands in the template field to make it so only my manga is formatted that way, and all other traditional books are saved using the default "{title} - {authors}" formatting.

    Thats where things went to hell.

    From what I read at: http://cc_faq.multipie.co.uk/index.php?solution_id=1067 you can set different templates for different things using conditional text like :if: :then: and :else:, but there doesn't seem to be a way (listed at least) to set it by file type or a specific Tag.

    It recommended making a Yes/No column for that specific sorting, and marking everything you want that sorting applied to as "yes". So I made a custom Yes/No column named "Manga" and and set it to yes in the test mangas's metadata.

    Then I changed the Template field in Calibre Companion to:

    :if: {#manga} :then: {series} - Chapter {series_index} [{#scanlators}] :else: {title} - {authors}

    I expected it to parse the manga volume the same as the origonal non conditional test, and for it to parse other books like epubs with the default "{title} - {authors}" format.

    What happened was a file like this:
    "_if_Yes_then_MangaName - Chapter 5 [ScanlatorGroup]_else_ChapterName_ - AuthorName"

    It just treated all the conditional "if-then-else" text as part of the name, replacing all the ":" with "_" since they cannot be used in file names.



    I figure I must be making some stupid error but I can't figure out what. Im using the newest version of Calibre companion (5.3.5.2) so I know its not due to that.

    Anyone know what im doing wrong?

    In the end it wouldn't be Horrible if the normal books were sent over using that manga formatting since I launch all books manually from Caliber Companion to the reader I use (Moon+) and it lists books (even PDF's) as the name from Calibre Companions metadata, and not the file name (like it would if you searched for that PDF using Moon+ manually since that format doesn't hold metadata).

    But still if this is possible and i'm just messing something up id like to do it the intended way. I also suspect there might be some issues with Moon+ bookmark/last read position synching on other devices if the file names aren't the same (even though the name in the reader is the Calibre metadata supplied one). so I would probably need to use that file naming everywhere.

     
    Moon+ Reader Multi Device Sync

    Has anyone managed to sync Highlights/Notes between devices successfully?

    Gdrive and Dropbox don't seem to do them at all.

    I've managed to export (share) them to a file from the Bookmarks screen and then copy them to another device and then import them. Doing this though sets the date.time of them to now, and also even though they can be viewed in bookmarks they don't display on the book. It's like it's lost the links to which page they were on..

    TIA

    edits not saving

    Hi,

    I just started use Calibre today and I am new to this forum.

    I am not sure which forum is best for this question. If there is one that is better than this one, please let me know.

    I am attempting to make some edits in my existing ebook. I got my epub file into Calibre and figured out how to use the find/replace thing and I got my edits done. Except that I forgot two. I save the epub file to my desktop and then realized I had 2 more edits to do. I went back and did those. But ever since, I cannot get the final file with those last 2 edits to save. They show up in Calibre but not when I save to my desktop.

    I have tried deleting all old epub files on my desktop and closing out Calibre and re-opening. I have gone through this a few times. Every time I can see that the edits are there/saved, in Calibre but when I save the epub file to my desktop and open it and check, the two new edits are not there.

    I can't figure out what else to do. Would LOVE some help!

    Thanks!

     
    Overdrive file reading issues

    I made an epub file in InDesign and converted it to a mobi file for Kindle, which is what the client will be selling the book for. The Kindle file appears to work correctly when viewed in the Kindle app, but they are looking at the epub file in Overdrive and there are a few issues. The superscripts are huge and one of the graphics is overlapping the text.

    Any ideas how to fix those? I can sort of duplicate them when I view the file in the Overdrive app, but I am unfamiliar with Overdrive so I'm not totally sure how to fix it.

    Thanks.
