Connect Software - Is there a better way?

So I'm happily playing around with my new Reader! It's great. The screen is amazing.

I'm currently trying to decide which books to put on the device. I have quite a few. I decided it would be easier to import them all into the Connect library, and then browse through a nice database.

Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work like that :-(

Most PDFs show up in the DB with the correct title and author. But the Reader seemingly doesn't make any attempt to deal with untagged files - TXT and RTF, as well as untagged PDFs. I can understand that, although some parsing of regularly-named files would be nice. But worse, I seemingly can't edit the library database, which means I don't even have the option of manually correcting it :-(

Is there better library management software out there? I will probably want to import things into the Connect software just to create the cache.xml, but it would be nice to have some organization to my files first...
