Editors' Review

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

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

What's new in version 3.6.0
  • Copy to library: Add an action to show a dialog that allows for easy selection of libraries for copy/move. Useful when there are a large number of libraries to choose from.
  • Server: Allow deleting a downloaded book from the "Browse all downloaded books" screen

Bug fixes:

  • Hopefully fix an issue with the book list jumping around when using the mouse on some computers
  • E-book viewer: Change the default fonts on windows to the Liberation font family. This matches the other platforms and avoids rendering issues with Times New Roman.
  • DOCX Output: Convert images placed by themselves inside block tags as block images rather than inline images.
  • Fix a typo that broke the download of a few news sources
  • ebook-viewer.exe: Fix --continue-reading not working
  • Fix non XML safe characters in feed descriptions causing news download to fail.
  • Browser viewer: Fix books that contain broken links with unicode characters in their paths not working.
  • Quickview: Fix regression in previous release that broke the 'Lock quickview' control
