From FAU : Original Cool Reader 3 also reveals only one book from the archives
If some books FB2 and TXT stuff in one file (say the name of the author's name serii.ZIP), opening in CoolReader by O revealed only one book (in my opinion in any order), other books from the archive will not be able to open.
I personally like this kept a lot of series that do not produce the files on the Kindle and do not delve into them for a long time looking for the right one.
The proposed solution: or open at the same time all the books in the game and give the opportunity to read them then at least through R, or as in FBKindle entering the ZIP file that is considered "directory" and enable it to choose to open the file. Moreover, if the book to a ZIP archive only one that can be opened as well now (it's convenient).

Not a bug, but feature Cool Reader. When the name is long, it shows the odd pages of the author's name, and even on the book title. And in TXT take information about the author nowhere.
When reading the book TXT format through a single page is not displayed file name (if the name is long and does not fit completely in line before the pages for hours, per cent).
