I have a Nook Classic .. I love it .. mostly .. my mom has an STR and I've had my eye on a Glow.
I was all set to get a Glow after Christmas, but my mom was over today with her STR and I played around with it a little ... I'm concerned about library management, which I see from the forums is an issue.
On my Classic, I use the shelves extensively. She also uses shelves, but I can't see that there is a way to see A. what shelf (s) a book is currently on and B. what books are NOT on a shelf at all. On my classic, I can see the unshelved books and in the "shelving" section, I can see what shelves an individual book is on.
It doesn't look like the STR can do that ... am I missing something? how do you know what books you haven't shelved?
Now, as near as I can tell, the library inadequacies are "solved" by using Calibre. With my Classic, I never saw the need to use anything other than Nook and ADE (for non BN books).
So, Calibre questions ... Do I need to "root" ... I'm not so interested in that ...
Will Calibre work with : B&N books
(obviously, yes); secure eReader
(I have a bunch of books from Fictionwise and I use ADE to sideload); ePub
(from the library, I also use ADE to sideload)
Will I need to strip the DRM from the secure eReader or library ePub books? Again, not sure I want to ... (can you tell I'm not a big rule-breaker
I think I can see that using Calibre requires me to download the B&N books and sideload them, but does that mean I would never really use the Wifi ... I wouldn't want B&N to automatically download a new book I had just sideloaded ....
A bunch of questions, I know ... as I said, I was all set until I saw the library on Mom's ... I do think that would bug me A LOT ... maybe if I started that way, but even mom is getting a bit frustrated with it ..
