Just upgraded and all my preloaded books are open and in I'm reading!

I have only just upgraded my original kobo with the firmwear 1.8x update.
Even though I am in Australia I have the Kobo desktop app and that's what I upgraded from. It all went well but after I added all my own books from Calibre I noticed that ALL 100 of the free preloaded books are open and in the "I'm Reading" section. I can't hide them by choosing to display only "My Books" as they are all open.
I have not opened ANY book as I have only just finished loading all of them. My books loaded via Calibre are all showing as "New" or "Unread"

I don't really want to delete the preloaded books from the Kobo as I do intend to read at least a few of them sometime but I can't handle having all these books in the "I'm reading" section.

I have tried searching but couldn't find this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to hide 100 open preloaded books?

You can mark them read in Calibre.

But will they be able to be hidden if I mark them as read? Or has that changed with the update?
Previously the preloaded books that I had opened and read couldn't be hidden which was fair enough as I had read them. However this is ALL 100 of the books.

Thanks for the suggestion I will see what Calibre does to them.

OK problem solved.
I used Calibre and removed the "I'm reading" tag in collections leaving it blank which reset all the preloaded books to unread and now they are hiding when I display "My books".

Now I just have to sort through all my books to mark the ones I have read and then I might actually get to read something to see how good the upgrade is...


So taming when do you find time to read? You are always solving everyone's problems?

Is there a quick way to delete the I'm Reading tag, or is it a 1 at a time manual operation?

If you don't have a bunch of other books on the reader--or if you have them on an SD card--a factory reset will take care of this and leave you in good shape. I am assuming that you did a "manage" cycle and this did not clear them and that you tried a sync, as well. Just be sure that you don't have any books on the desktop/website I'm reading list that you don't want synced as well.
