Calibre is free and open source e-book computer software that organizes, saves and manages e-books, supporting a variety of formats. The application includes library management, format conversion, news feeds to ebook conversion as well as e-book reader sync features.
Calibre supports many file formats and reading devices. Most of these e-book formats can be edited, for example, by changing the font or the font size and by adding an auto-generated table of contents. Conversion and editing is only possible after digital rights management restrictions have been removed from commercially purchased e-book files. calibre does not natively support this removal, but the capability can be added to the program by installing freely available plug-ins.
