Marking books read in the Sony PRS 505

Once you have read a book is there any way to mark it in the Sony reader to show that it has already been read? I don't want to delete once they are read.

Hi, you might have better luck asking here

edit: I see that you have already done so. try not create duplicate posts with the same question on more than one area at the time or you'll end up suffering the wrath of the moderators

First copy the book file to another directory. Then go to Reader Library and delete the book. The actual file is NOT deleted in the Reader Liberary even though a warning is posted about it.

In the other directory rename the file with the name of the book at the beginning leaving the rest of the file name intact. The number of bytes will be the same as the book deleted and the original copy of the file left in the Reader Library.

Then you will never see the book in the Reader Library again but you will have two copies of the book file on the hard disk in case you want to import it again to read.

By the way on the disk the original files for BBeB (.lrx) files are in the eBook Library directory and the oiriginals for ePub files are in the Book Library directory.
