I really can't understand why people keep so many books on their devices. It is so easy to transfer books to-and-from a reader so why not just have a dozen or so and add more when needed, removing the ones you have read.

Problem with reader instantly solved.
Answer is very simple... we want a pocket library NOT a pocket book... I don't want to choose what I feel like reading before I go anywhere, I want to choose my reading when I'm ready to read... and I have 25K items on my Sony with no problems at all but I also choose to stick with dedicated eReaders (505, 600, 650) all using PRS+ and at one books a day that would take me 68.5 years to go but you're assuming everything is some huge standard book length... I've got lots of short stories and books and read multiples in a day so it's not going to take that long... and I'm not too worried about reading everything I have, I just grab anything that I might enjoy reading, doesn't mean I have to read it but does give me the choice... I'm also planning on taking my eReader(s) with me...

If you want this sort of storage on a T1/2 then I guess you need to Root it and use a third party reader that will access the card as files/folders directly...
