50 is more than enough for me, I usually have less than 20 books on my reader - but I know from other discussions that some folks like to install 100s of books. My disc utilisation on readers never gets above single figure %, and that's with some audio files on there also!
if someone wants 500 books why not let them also have 500 covers.
I am thinking that once this plug is fully evolved & integrated with calibre, I'll be able to tick a calibre option box saying always send cover , via the plug in, when sending book.
I will beta test it on sony prs650 if that helps. I do also have a Kindle (but not jailbroken & not in active use) and my wife has a Kobo.
I don't know for sure how many "dead author" images are in a new Kindle, I except there's a list somewhere & I'd guess 15-20.
NB The Kobo already does what I'd like to see on Sony i.e. it displays the cover of the currently open book as its screensaver when put into sleep mode.
