Just received my new Kindle yesterday. I transferred a bunch of books to it via Calibre. All the books have covers in Calibre, but only about half of them show up on the Kindle carousel. Most of the covers do show up on the book shelf though. Are there settings that I need to change on the Kindle or in Calibre? The OCD person in me hates not seeing a book cover in the carousel.

Charging before first use?
I got my wife a Kindle Fire 8.9 HD for Christmas. My question is: Should I unbox it and charge it before she opens it, or does it come pre charged? She will want to play with it right away.

Mine was partially charged when I opened it.

I have the same problem, not getting covers and the books load in docs. rather than bookshelf. Calibre and Kindle don't see each other on my mac. I've worked with drop-box, changed calibre, nothing is getting me what I books in the book self with covers and metadata. The kindle is going back, super annoyed with this glitch because books are my passion.
You can email your book from calibre to your kindle, but the metadata doesn't always go (covers) and kindle still puts the books in documents. Really????
