I agree another option isn't needed. I didn't realize you kept essentially the same code when you create either the flingable list or the alphabet list. To me a list of author or series should be just that. That said, the inclusion of titles isn't going to stop me from using that option. Thanks for adding this option.

It does indeed work reasonably well.

There are some implementations that will improve performance of painting such as not attempting to populate the titles/items during a fling (while it is moving), instead waiting for the list to settle and then populating only the visible items, all the while not blocking taps.

At any rate, it will be fixed one way or another in the next update.
Looking forward to your solution. I guess the OPDS feature is your next big goal. One question if we add a book via a OPDS feed other then calibre do you plan on that book being added to our calibre library the next time we connect?

Keep up the excellent work.
