Sorry for reviving this old thread, but your BASH command does not always work, Kovid. If a title or author is very long and needs to lines to be displayed, tail -n2 does not work anymore.

Fiddling around with "--line-width=LINE_WIDTH" also does not offer a solution because line width is never longer than the book with the longest title.

EDIT: One workaround is to use -f timestamp
