Well, learning how to make a relational database is hopefully a reward in itself...
I agree that finding a specific book isn't that frustrating. My main gripe is the awkwardness of compiling a list of books according to specific criteria (e.g. illustrated epubs in german). But I see other potential benefits, too: Easy creation of OPDS-catalogs, making the naming of authors more consistent (how many different versions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are in the library now?), find which books are only available in epub/mobi versions, make some kind of popularity metric...

Progress on the database is satisfactory, I've decided on the data relationships, so now I just have to get the script for database insertion working properly.
