I think you problem is likely that you forget the desktop app is acting as a device just like the e-reader or an ipad or mobile phone and any new bookmark will result in a transfer upon syncing. So, if you open any of those books on the desktop app, it will be transferred to the e-reader the next time you sync. The new bookmarks from the desktop app books will then show up in your reader. That's the purpose of the bookmark system.
Try this. Sync the e-reader and let it do all its transferring, and then sync it again. You'll see the second time you sync no books are transferred. You can sync as many times you want and no books will be transferred because you haven't touched the books on the desktop. Now, don't open or click the mouse on any of those books on the desktop app until you purchase a new book.
Then, once a new book is transferred to the desktop app after an Update, you'll see it is shown as New. Now do a sync. Only that one new book will be transferred and none of your e-reader bookmarks will change.
Moral. Don't touch the books on the desktop. If you want to read them on your computer use ADE.
