Question Shortcuts or Tips and Tricks

Don't know if there's a thread about this, I haven't found one, doesn't mean there isn't. If there is, I'd gladly read it. If not, can anyone tell me some tips, tricks or shortcuts they've found on the 600?

One that was passed on to me, get Calibre for managing your library and skip the eBook Library software (for anything other than purchasing from Sony).

How do you transfer books from elibrary to calibre and the other way around?

Find where your purchased books are stored.
Open Calibre.
Select add books, find the book you want to add, click open.
Your book is now copied to the calibre library.

Calibre is a really powerful library management tool.
You can add metatada, tags (same as collections), rate books, convert (if there's no drm) to other formats, and so much more.
