Calibre is one of the best eBook management software available right now, but its strength lies in the abundance of plugins available for it.

This week we’ll take a look at an interesting extension called “Barnes & Noble." According to the developer, with this plugin users have access to another download source for book metadata, including some excellent quality covers, which are retrieved from www.barnesandnoble.com.

The plugin can retrieve title, author, series, isbn, comments, rating, publisher, publication date and covers.

It can be easily installed from the Preferences menu or from the official forum, and it needs version 0.8 or higher of Calibre. A comprehensive tutorial about its usage can also be found on the above forums.
