I've even thought about creating my own thumbnail gallery but once I started, yikes...too much work to relabel every thumbnail copy from every folder. Just one person's opinion.
For me, I do use the cover browser view. And even if I can't remember which book I am looking for, I can sort by date and usually that helps as I roughly remember when I added it. But as long as you know the author, you can easily see the book in the cover flow and find it that way.
