Calibre: Ebook Management Tool

Yuhuuu. Met malem semuanya. Udah pada tidur? Kok bisa?! Bencong aja baru bangun jam segini. Wakaka. Buat bencong yang lagi baca, jangan tersungging…eh tersinggung ya. No offense. Okeh. Sudah saatnya posting yang berbau nerd lagi.

Gimana ceritanya nih sampe pake Calibre Ebook Management Tool segala? Semuanya berawal dari keinginan saya membaca buku terbarunya Alexandra Robbins, The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory, and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School. Penasaran bukunya kaya apa? Berikut saya cuplikin resensi bukunya di Amazon:

In a smart, entertaining, reassuring book that reads like fiction, Alexandra Robbins manages to cross Gossip Girl with Freaks and Geeks and explain the fascinating psychology and science behind popularity and outcasthood. She reveals that the things that set students apart in high school are the things that help them stand out later in life. Robbins follows seven real people grappling with the uncertainties of high school social life, including: (1) The Loner, who has withdrawn from classmates since they persuaded her to unwittingly join her own hate club; (2) The Popular Bitch, a cheerleading captain both seduced by and trapped within her clique’s perceived prestige; (3) The Nerd, whose differences cause students to laugh at him and his mother to needle him for not being “normal”; (4) The New Girl, determined to stay positive as classmates harass her for her mannerisms and target her because of her race; (5) The Gamer, an underachiever in danger of not graduating, despite his intellect and his yearning to connect with other students; (6) The Weird Girl, who battles discrimination and gossipy politics in school but leads a joyous life outside of it; (7) The Band Geek, who is alternately branded too serious and too emo, yet annually runs for class president.

Dapet message dari bro Ajooy yang ngabari kalo TGSITE udah nongol di bandar ebook ajib & gretong dan menanti untuk diunduh. Wait…Ini ebook non original? As a matter of fact, it is. Seperti kata teman saya, “These are bunch of nerds we’re talking about. One of them will buy the book, disassemble it, scan it, and next thing you know it’s in mediafire, megaupload, rapidshare, etc. only in a couple of weeks“.

Truthfully, jika buku cetaknya sudah beredar di Indonesia, saya ngga bakal ragu untuk membeli versi bahasa Inggris ataupun terjemahannya. You have my words (Caution: I’m a liar. LOL). No, I’m honest this time. I’ll buy it.

Format buku TGSITE ini adalah MOBI/EPUB. Lewat software Calibre, kita bisa membaca format mobile tersebut, bahkan juga bisa mengkonversi format mobile tadi ke format lain, termasuk PDF dan sebagainya. Daftar lengkap format ebook yang di-support oleh Calibre bisa dilihat di sini. Berikut skrinsyut Calibre saya. Kata orang, kalo ngga ada skrinsyut berarti hoax. 😀 Faktanya, ini bukan hoax 😀

Enjoy! 😀
