If I put like 300 books, will the search function become even slower than what it already is? If the answer is yes, whats the ideal size of the SD?

They say you can put 30k books on it with 32GB SD but if the search gets slower and slower...

And btw, what is the ideal number of books one could have without having the apparel being painfully slow?

Thanks a lot!
I dont think that the search time would be any length of time that would make much difference. I have over 3000 books on my Sd card and I am constantly adding books. I read and read like there is no tommorow and the one thing I always hated about paper books was that eventually I would have to clean house. With my ereader I can keep a small library at finger tips on a card that is no smaller then the fingernail on my pinky finger.
Imagine that an entire library on demand. REgardless of what you decide to do I can imagine erasing any books off my sd card and my ultimate goal would be to fill the card to capacity. Reading is my passion and my escape from the real world where I can be hero or just plain imagine the dragons and wonders that the author has created out of thin air.... whoops started rambling... but back to point... I have not noticed much of a differance in search time... currently... As far as an SD card goes it can store information for over 10 years with no need of power so not sure how much power that would drain but I am sure its negligable.
