Okay, doing that with a bunch of books at once (6 to be exact) was not a good idea. It muchly confused my Touch (manual 2.1.1) to such an extent that after a couple of cycles of removing books via Calibre, ejecting, processing, Wifi syncing, connecting to Calibre, sending books etc, the series shelf of the books I was sending appeared in tact saying "6 books", but when opening the shelf Kobo told me "Your library is empty" (yeah right)... After a final Wifi sync and then restart, it wouldn't start up any more. Had to restore with it plugged in otherwise it wouldn't listen. It's currently square dancing. How fun! It's probably my own fault, so I'm not really bothered. And a proper reset will clean things up and have my messy library nice and fresh. I'll clean the kitchen first.
P.S. Before the last Wifi sync and switching off to not wake up again, I checked the Kobo disk from my computer: the books were indeed not on the device. I'd deleted the shelf from the Kobo, and Calibre had apparently put it back, without putting the books back... Something strange going on.
