Store user annotations in the EPUB file

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 11:38:09 GMT

User annotations - bookmarks, highlights, notes, etc... to the best of my knowledge do not stay with the EPUB book but are proprietary to each reader. So if I change readers and open a book that I marked up in another reader my annotations will be lost. This is not so much of a concern for the immediate future as I don't intend to change readers often, but say in 5 or 10 years I go to re-read a book and I'm using a totally new system/platform/reader - to loose all my annotations from the last time I read it is unacceptable. * Does the EPUB format support storing user annotations in the book.epub file in a non-destructive manner? * If it does, are there any readers out there that store all of the user annotations in the book.epub file?



Desperate: Moon+Reader Pro w Calibre/Dropbox - How to Display Books on My Shelf?

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 05:38:33 GMT

Ok, so I'm soo not a tech-person, but hoping someone here can help, as I'm totally stumped. I've got a new Asus Zenpad, trying to set up to ideally sync to dropbox (google drive would work too), as my whole gynormous Calibre library, with detailed metadata, is set up on both. I finally scrapped my plan to use FB Reader Pro, because I couldn't sync it to my dropbox w Calibre library. Managed to get Moon+Reader Pro synced to calibre file on dropbox, so that when I add/update books to my Calibre on my laptop, they're immediately readable w Moon+Reader Pro on tablet. But here's the rub... one of my very fave things to do is search large library by faux bookshelf... look at all the pretty book covers, until I decide what book/series to read next. I can't manage to make my dropbox/calibre library display on Moon+Reader shelf, no matter what i try. I can view it by list of authors, as set up in calibre file, but can't import those books into "My Shelf". Do I need to install Calibre Companion, or what? I'm pretty much open to any solution, as long as I can view my whole, huge calibre library by 'view' of bookcovers, and select books that way. Does anyone have a solution for me? Happy to install or even purchase cheap apps to make this happen. Thank you so much! Really appreciate the help. Only found this forum after extensive hunting on my own, so crossing fingers ya'll have a solution. Happy Reading! :p Rachel
