Question Using B&N account *and* side-loaded content

I just added a Nook wi-fi to my collection of devices. I have about 400 books on my PC, where I manage them with Calibre. I also have a dozen or so books in my B&N account, and when I linked it to the device, they all came in via the wi-fi, neat as you please. And I tested side-loading by pulling in four books from my Calibre database. But I have two problems with this.

1. The books I side loaded are in a folder called My Documents, but the books that came from my B&N account are in a folder called My B&N Library.

2. The same books that are in my B&N account, are also in Calibre, because I put them there when I bought them. So if I just side load everything, I'll have duplicates. It seems awfully nuisancy to pick and choose only the things that don't come from my B&N account - I suppose I could make a tag for that but it seems kinda silly.

How can I consolidate this to one list? Right now I'm thinking I could just load them all from Calibre, and keep the B&N library empty.

Then later, if I purchase something from B&N's store, from the Nook's wi-fi, I can come back to my PC when I get home, and download it again to store it in Calibre.

Can I make my B&N account not load everything from my account onto my Nook whenever I turn on the wi-fi, and only load the things I just bought, until I get home to my PC and can synch with Calibre? Is there any way to clear that folder without taking the books out of my B&N account? I kinda like knowing they're out there, just in case, so i don't really want to nuke them from the account.

For now I have it in airplane mode to keep it off the wi-fi, until I come up with a plan to control it better.

Thanks!
