  • If you are using Windows 8, please use calibre 5.44, which works with all Windows 8 machines, from here. Simply un-install calibre and install 5.44, doing so will not affect your books/settings.

  • If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, please use calibre 3.48, which works with all Windows 7/Vista machines, from here. Simply un-install calibre and install 3.48, doing so will not affect your books/settings.


Calibre (/ˈkælɪbər/, stylised calibre) is a cross-platform free and open-source suite of e-book software. Calibre supports organizing existing e-books into virtual libraries, displaying, editing, creating and converting e-books, as well as syncing e-books with a variety of e-readers. Editing books is supported for EPUB and AZW3 formats. Books in other formats like MOBI must first be converted to those formats, if they are to be edited.

On 31 October 2006, when Sony introduced its PRS-500 e-reader, Kovid Goyal started developing libprs500, aiming mainly to enable use of the PRS-500 formats on Linux.[4] With support from the MobileRead forums, Goyal reverse-engineered the proprietary Broad Band eBook (BBeB) file format. In 2008, the program, for which a graphical user interface was developed, was renamed "calibre", displayed in all lowercase.[5]

calibre is an e-book library manager. It can view, convert and catalog e-books in most of the major e-book formats. It can also talk to many e-book reader devices. It can go out to the Internet and fetch metadata for your books. It can download newspapers and convert them into e-books for convenient reading. It is cross platform, running on Linux, Windows and macOS.

The calibre Content server includes a backend for serving your books and a basic front end for searching through your library, downloading individual titles, or even reading your books directly through a web browser. The server also offers a basic mobile interface that works with a wide variety of devices, including the basic browsers that ship with many e-ink readers such as Kindle and Kobo.

calibre expects a desktop environment but it will not find one on a headless server, so you will see some warnings about desktop integration failing. It is safe to ignore these because we will control calibre entirely via its command line tools and web interface.

Here we will set up a script to add all files in this directory to calibre and then delete them (adding books to calibre creates a copy of the files in your library directory, so we can remove the originals once they are added.)

In this tutorial, you set up a calibre ebook server. You turned it into a service so that it would start when your server boots, added a cron job to automatically find and add new books to your library, and set up authentication and an SSL certificate to secure it. 041b061a72
