That has frequently been my solution as well (detailed in previous post).

I deal only with the Borders rebranded version of the software. Although the behavior may be the same either way you slice it.

This is true.

I have not attempted to cross-polinate the two, but I would assume you are correct.

This has been my solution as well. As long as you open each newly loaded book after you transfer it (in whatever way) to your reader a bookmark is automatically placed and it will remain in the reading list. Which is convenient in this scenario. On the flip side, it is rather inconvenient when you just need to revisit a certain passage somewhere in the middle of an already finished book and it then becomes added to your reading list again until you flip that last page. Yay!
