Sony PRS 650

Hi,
I have has my Sony PRS 650 for 3 days and I love it.
I am putting my ebooks on the reader using Calibre, not really sure what I am doing but the books are getting onto the reader!!!!

My question is this, how can I search my Sony to find a book by the author please?


Also how do I delete a single book?

Many thanks, Isis xxx

To search by author press "See All" on the home page and then press the inverted triangle in the top right of the screen and select "by Author" in the submenu that appears.


To delete a book that is open, press OPTIONS and select "Delete Book" from the menu.

Mine came with a manual on the reader itself. Kind of a Catch-22 if you can't figure out how to turn it on. Seriously though, check and see if you have a user manual on the device itself.

Another way to search is to go to 'See All' then presss the OPTIONS button then select 'Search' from the menu. This will work for either first name or last name or both.
