Prepending Book with Description from Metadata

Hello all!

I would like to know - is it possible to use Calibre to put a description of the book right at the front, before the first page? The plugin downloads the description, of course, but I know of no way to have it entered.

This would be amazing - like many of you, I'm sure, you keep a lot of your library electronically and don't always remember the book, especially without the cover picture.

Isn't it great when you find out a feature you want is already implemented.
