How about some options for what is displayed on the page menu.
On 2.1.1, it goes Time -> % read. If I sleep and wake-up, it shows the Book title.
I say replace the % read with the book title (the % read is graphically displayed at the bottom already), and replace the wifi connection with the temporary time, and make the temporary time longer. Or always leave the time up, and refresh every 5 seconds.
And speed up everything. The Nook ST is very fast compared to the KT.
