    Action Henty, G. A: One of the 28th. v1. 25 Oct 2014

    George Alfred Henty (8 December 1832 – 16 November 1902), was a prolific English novelist and a special correspondent. He is best known for his historical adventure stories that were popular in the late 19th century. His works include The Dragon & The Raven (1886), For The Temple (1888), Under Drake's Flag (1883) and In Freedom's Cause (1885).

    Excerpt
    So saying, without giving his sisters time to reply, he walked hastily to the door and went out. Miss Penfold and Miss Eleanor Penfold gazed at each other in speechless astonishment. So accustomed were they to settle everything that took place at Penfold Hall, that this sudden assumption of authority on the part of their brother fairly staggered them. Miss Penfold was the first to speak:

    Buying the Kindle @ Best Buy or Amazon ?

    Found out that my local Best Buy has the Voyage, and the Paperwhite. I can compare and get whichever I choose on the spot, instead of waiting until the end of November for my preorder with Amazon. So it is 6 or one, half dozen of the other, or will I get better warranty/customer service if I get it from Amazon ?

     
    ePub to AZW3 generates lines with warnings

    I have a good small epub, and converted to AZW3. The ePub was OK using ADE, but the Kindle Previewer wasn't quite the same (no surprise) so I opened the AZW3 using editor and ran a check

    1. The Cover jpg was duplicated, but the 00002.jpg was not referenced (easily edited out) and 0001.jpg is the real cover

    2. The OPF has

    Code:

      <guide>
        <reference type="toc" href=http://www.mobileread.com/forums/"text/part0000.html#calibre_generated_inline_toc" title="Table of Contents"/>
        <reference type="cover" href="images/00001.jpeg"/>
        <reference type="other.ms-coverimage-standard" href="images/00001.jpeg"/>
        <reference type="other.ms-coverimage" href="images/00001.jpeg"/>
      </guide>

    which I guess is something the Kindle needs (not sure) 3 different ways to find the cover image

    3. BUT ... [Check Book] generates errors for each the 3 lines

    Code:

    The link "images/00001.jpeg" points to a file images/00001.jpeg that is not a text (HTML) document. Many ebook readers will be unable to follow such a link. You should either remove the link or change it to point to a text document. For example, if it points to an image, you can create small wrapper document that contains the image and change the link to point to that.
    Since I was looking for problems in the output AZW3 I noticed these flagged Warnings.

    Q1 - Do we need to copy the cover image twice?

    Q2 - Is there any way the conversion can "create small wrapper document that contains the image and change the link to point to that"?

    Q3 - Did I miss a conversion setting?


    Thanks

    Happily Settled with New Glo

    Originally, I wanted a Mini because of the compact size. My indie bookstore didn't have any, and slowly realized the Mini had been discontinued. *Sometimes slowly...*

    And then set my sights on an H20... but I saw a Glo at a great price, and bought it instead. (The H20 is still on my wishlist.)

    I love it! It's a great size, and has front lights! (But you all know that.)

    Previously, I've used a Kindle keyboard. The Glo has all the features my Kindle didn't: compact, lightweight, touch, and good lighting. I know, I know, I could have found those things in a Kindle, but I wanted to break away from the Big-Wonderful-A to see what the outside world was like.

    A longtime Calibre user, after scouring everyone's tips here on the forum, I finally got a good Library routine down for my Glo.

    The only thing I still long for (and know I'm not alone): being able to send a highlight or annotation to Evernote.

    I bought a matte shield for the screen (Great Shield), and a Mulbess cover stand.

    I'm so glad I got a Glo! I carry it everywhere, and can't wait to travel with it (soon!).

    Thank you everyone who posts tips, tricks, questions and answers! You rock.

     
    William W. Johnstone: HELP!!!

    OK, so I've been reading a couple of thrillers from Pinnacle books lately, and liked them enough to go to the publisher's website to see the other authors writing for them. I saw a couple of westerns by WWJ. They looked interesting so I went onto the trusty FasntasticFiction and... OH MY GOD HE'S WRITTEN SO MUCH WHERE DO I START NOT ALL OF THEM ARE IN EBOOK FORMAT AHHHHHHHHH... and breathe. Anyway, it appears as though his westerns are mostly interconnected through the Jensen family. However, the saga of the Jensens begins with the Mountain Man series, but hardly any of them are in ebook format. What do I do? Where do I start? I only want to read some of his westerns, as it's a genre I haven't really experienced before.

     
    Using old Kindle as an eInk photo frame

    (I posted this here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=248628 but it strikes me that this might be a better place to post.)

    I was sure someone would have figured out a way to do this already, but I looked and couldn't find anything.

    I have a K3 Kindle that I no longer need (the Voyage is on its way soon!). I've seen Kindles re-purposed as weather stations, but I'd like to use my K3 as a photo frame - just mount it nicely and have it scroll through pictures, changing automatically every five minutes or something. As I said above, I was sure somebody would already have code for this, but it doesn't look like it. There's lots of stuff about changing the screensaver/"cover", but nothing about using it as a photo frame.

    Any thoughts?

     
    Calibre doesn't any more to device by email

    Hi,
    since I have upgraded Calibre to 2.05 I can't send any more (by mail) any ebook to my kindle. It doesn't create the task.
    any idea?

His works include The Dragon & The Raven (1886), For The Temple (1888), Under Drake's Flag (1883) and In Freedom's Cause (1885).

    The revolt of La Vendde against the French Republic at the time of the Revolution forms the groundwork of this absorbing story. Leigh Stansfield, a young English lad, is drawn into the thickest of the conflict. Forming a company of boys as scouts for the Venddan Army, he greatly aids the peasants. He rescues his sister from the guillotine, and finally, after many thrilling experiences, when the cause of La Vendde is lost, he escapes to England.

    The Eschaton Tales [sci-fi]

    In the great cosmic lottery of extinction level events, Earth is about to hit a double jackpot. Join the adventure as the only home humankind has ever known is hurtling towards disaster.


    The Eschaton Tales is a series of interconnected science fiction novelettes and short stories (with the odd recurring character) that can each be enjoyed individually and out of context but collectively reveal a bigger picture. Vol.1 contains the following stories:

    1.1 The Burst
    The Conways are a happy little family like millions of others; maybe even a little happier than most. Life presents its challenges as it always does, but by and large, things are good—until on a calm spring night in 2079 it turns out the fault is quite literally in their stars.

    1.2 Dixon Can Do
    With disaster looming in the dark and a bunch of clueless advisors at hand, maybe it takes a mad scientist to encourage the leader of the free world to boldly go wherever humanity’s future lies.

    1.3 Meitner²
    Huxley is only twenty-two years old when he stumbles upon two of the most important discoveries he’ll ever make. One will change his life. The other will change the world.

    Available on Amazon (and Kindle Unlimited) now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O4W59II

     
    OSX Yosemite and Calibre

    I recently downloaded OSX Yosemite, and then Calibre 2.7. Before, the resolution was high and everything looked good. Now however, the resolution looks like something from Windows XP, and the plugin icons on the menu bar are now really large. In short, Calibre now looks horrible. What do i do?

     
    Personal tag vs Cover

    Hello



    I use Calibre to convert mobi books into non personal book by removing the personal doc tag, and i send them to my kindle through mail so i they can have a cover..

    Here's the thing
    If i add a book to my kindle by sending it to my kindle email, i'll get the cover, but the book will be tagged as personal (Even though i removed the PDOC tag in calibre)

    If i add a book to my kindle through the usb, I will not get the cover, but the book will not have a personal tag

    How can i get both the cover and non-tagged book?

    Thank you very much
