Plus 1 for Calibre!

It is a really good book database and will convert between more formats than you can shake a stick at!

One nice function is the possibility to add a macro to add "Series - Number" to the title of books when transferring to your e-reader so that you don't need to search to find which is the next Jack Reacher title to read.

If you get a badly formatted e-book you can do all sorts of format search/replace magic too.
So old that I did my first coding in octal via switches on a DEC PDP 8
