books sort by first name and some by last name. It would be nice to be able to fix
that within the app.
* A way to see which books have been read and which are in progress. That lack is
one of my big pet peeves with the Kindle app. I sometimes forget what I have
read.
* Other sort options are always good, such as by tags or series or genre.
Overall it is a nice reading app with a lot of potential. I'm looking forward to seeing what you are able to do to improve it, Micah.
I hear you on all fronts. And while I recognize that it is no replacement for a more convenient "library level" indicator of place-in-book - just fyi - in Library list view (which is all iPhone has) if you tap on the circle button on the right side of a list item, you view the "Book Info" screen and it does include a "Current page <x> of <total pages>" indicator.

And while on the topic, one of the things that I think is cool about Bluefire Reader, is that you can use that same "view" to jump directly into the TOC or Bookmarks list of any given book right from the library.
