So when I download a book on the N7 I copy it from the N7 Downloads to the Books folder on my PC. If I'm going to read it soon I'll then copy it to CurrentBooks on the PC so I have it ready to hand.

The advantage of keeping a single master Books folder on the PC is that I can back it up to my Google storage in case the PC dies.
Thank you for such a detailed answer. Its a great help. Will do that.
Regarding books are you talking about the whole book folder ( for each book) or just the Epub file?

Also with calibre if I copy all my 500 books in calibre to a master Books folder are they recognised if I add them elsewhere? Or are they calibre files?
Do like calibre for organising but don't understand how it works lol

Look forward to the answer

Think I need to ask you about Google storage also lol
