I usually keep only a small number of books from my e-library on the device at any one time because it's easier to find what I'm looking for.
I generally don't "browse" through my books. I pick an author or title I want to read and search. The one thing I'd most like to see on the Nook Touch is the ability to shelve the book currently being read, and be able to save it off line. If I could do that, I'd definitely have "read in year NNNN", "currently reading", and "to be read" shelves, so that I could go save books that I want to read for later and not forget about them. I know I have at least a dozen unfinished books that I stopped reading because I had reasons to switch to another one (not because I hated it), but I never got back to it because I forgot about it after 2-3 weeks of reading other things. If I could only shelve the currently read book, that would stop happening (probably).

Also, many of my sideloaded ebooks don't show a cover, and that makes for less visceral browsing.
