Editors' Review


Calibre Portable helps organize and keep track of your e-books. You can read e-books though the app as well.


Sync and conversion: Through Calibre Portable, you can sync all of your e-books, so no matter where you want to read them, you'll always pick them up in just the right place. You can also convert e-books from one format to another to make them compatible with various e-book readers and other mobile devices. Output format options include MOBI, EPUB, AZW3, FB2, HTMLZ, LIT, PDB, PDF, and more.

Customizing the look: There are also quite a few options available for customizing the appearance of the pages including the table of contents, the page setup, and the look and feel of the pages themselves.

Search: You can also search for new books directly through the app. When you use this feature, you'll be presented with many options for each listing, so you can quickly find the best deal on the book you want to read next.


Freezing: This app did freeze and crash a couple of times during testing. It did always open back up again without issues, however.

Bottom Line

Calibre Portable is a great option whether you have an extensive e-book library already or are just getting started. It provides clear options for syncing and converting e-books, as well as keeping them centrally located, so you can find what you're looking for quickly.

Easy organization. Great converter. The most comfortable way to transfer books from a PC to kindle.


None. Great job, developer!

 |  Version: Calibre Portable 0.8.67


comes with a ebook reader that can view nearly all the different types of ebooks
allows to have more than one version of a ebook (especially i like to have a pdf version for my laptop and a epub version for my iPod touch)
can convert ebooks very well
you can easily edit or search amazon/google books for metadata
has a great news feature
allows you to sync your calibre library to iTunes for iBooks


sometimes you have to add a isbn to help it find the right metadata
cant really think of any other negatives


get it, its the best ebook manger, i wish there was a app for iOS/andriod

Everything in this software is phenomenal!


There is Nothing NEGATIVE about this software!!


This software even CONVERTS from one format to another.
If you do not like this software, then it is because YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE IT CORRECTLY.

All my Kindle MOBI and PDF books are in this manager.
Simply Excellent!!!

"Any version is Great"

Works as Calibre does. Perfect and always has some of the most dedicated programmer(s) ever encountered. Not a soul I know of that has any type of eReader and a PC and even those without eReaders but do read eBooks have Calibre. It just works, correctly I should add.


never could find one CON even if I tried.


There are more than a few PC eReaders for different formats. Calibre reads them all with MANY other features that only amny different apps could offer, and Calibre has them all and works better then most of them that are dedicated to only one specific task!
