Ouch! When I warned about performance, I was thinking of the driver creating and maintaining the shelves.
From my experiments, the shelf related performance on the Touch is related to the number of shelves and the total number of books on them. So ten shelves with ten books each will be roughly the same as five shelves with twenty each. I think the most I have had was about 300 shelves but there were about 400 books on them. Most shelves had less than ten books, but a few had over 100. Performance wasn't to bad, but I found that number of shelves impractical.
