Post Sideload into Newspapers?

I was wondering if there is any way to have books slide loaded onto the Glo to show up in the newspaper section instead of the books section?

I often put on ePubs from Instapaper, which are just a collection of articles, or Calibre-created ePubs of our local news site. It'd be much nicer to have these show up in that section instead of mashed into all my books.

I'm pretty sure that would require some database trickery that is beyond me, to be frank. But there are folks much more knowledgeable around here; hopefully they'll poke their noses in.

It might be possible, but I don't know. I have just had a look at the database, but I don't have any examples in it to try to work out what to do with sideloading a paper. And I can't get any. I had a look at the Kobo site, but it states they don't have any newspapers or magazines for international customers. Without some examples to look at, there isn't a way to work out what to do.

A pet peeve of mine. They continue to advertise this, yet it does not exist.
