Thanks JustForFun, looks like you nailed the problem right on the head. Guess I need to rethink my library plans, I was going to use EPUB for everything, but now it looks like I'm going to shift to FB2.

If you are using EPub you are out of luck. Series information for EPubs aren't really defined in the standard - at least not in EPub 2. Calibre uses its own extensions to the book metadata to store this information. It wouldn't be too hard to extract the series information from EPubs generated by Calibre, but since Pocketbook doesn't release the sources for the bookshelf app the community can't fix it...
