A good way of testing. But when I bought mine, they hadn't set the device up properly.

Went home, set it up with a clean virtual machine and rolled it back after the deed was done & turned off wifi. Organizing my books into shelves was a bit annoying, too bad that the Kobo doesn't identify folders as shelves. Now I'm trying to find a nice cover, the usual ones are superfat and the slim gecko is kinda meh..
If you use calibre, it can do the shelf creation for you. See the sticky at the top of the Kobo forum. Also, the Kobo firmware allows books to be in multiple shelves. With that, folders as shelves doesn't work as well.

For covers, there is discussion in the Kobo forum. I can't recommend one as I don't use one.
