I understand some software can be installed to make the e reader work better like Calibre. Any other suggestions on that front?
I would think that an SD card would be slower than the internal memory, unless that's also an SD card. If you do get an SD card, I'd get a class 6. Anything higher you're wasting your money and might actually be slowing the reader down (for reading anyway).

If you press and hold down the page turn key it will jump in 10 page increments. You shouldn't have to do anything else.

I use calibre to organize my books by tagging all my books with Genre's & subgenre's. For example a sample programming book on .Net would be tagged Programming.Dotnet.Sample. This would then be uploaded into subdirectories of my books directory based on the genre and subgenre's. e.g. \\sdcard\books\Programming\Dotnet\sample. For nontechnical books I also split them into Author directories. Calibre is so powerful there are lots of ways you can devise to upload your books. I don't know if this makes the reader work better but it is organized the way I like. My wife can't stand my directory structure. YMMV.

My one gripe for the 912 is that I can't apply any of the themes for the other devices to it.
