Query calibre data from Windows Phone 7
I am developing an ebook reader App for the Windows Phone 7.
The app is currently quite capable of accessing and downloading books from a Calibre library, using the OPDS data available via the Content Server.
However, the structure of the content server makes it very difficult to access information like publisher, series and tags when a single book is downloaded, since this would involve a very large series of queries to the Content Server.
Is there a way of querying information about a single book from the Calibre database?
This would have to be via HTTP, since the Windows Phone 7 currently has no socket library (although one will be available in the next OS release towards the end of the year).

If you are getting a book via OPDS shouldn't you already have the metadata from the OPDS acquisition feed where you go tthe download link for the book?
