Is there a way to fix this, other than rebuilding it from scratch? That would make me want to cry because I'm using 3 readers at the moment and I would lose the data about which book is on each reader.
I believe the easiest way to correct this would be to replace the metadata.db file with a recent backup.
Lacking this try Preferences - Advance - check database integrity.
