Displaying series with title

I prefer to read books from Stanza which requires you look at each book to see the series information. Unless there is a better way I don't know about?

Is it possible to have a plug in that adds the series information to the end of title Calibre uses? For example:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo :Millennium 1

The goal being to quickly see series information regardless of how you access the file (dropbox, stanza, itunes etc). In a perfect world, I would also have the ability to undo the feature after I have read the book. Well, I might as well ask: if it can undo the title - it would then add something to a custom column noting it has been read.

An additional benefit would be the ability to see what books are on my device without having to plug it in.

Thank you!

Ah, think I found it - Preferences - saving books to disk. I can alter the expression to change the title. But, how would I easily select specific books to reverse?

Select books: Send (again) to...
You will need to delete the OLD version on your DEVICE.
The template does not affect the Library

Thank you! I will play with this.......I have been looking at some of the regexp used by others and it looks like this will solve my title issue easily as I just delete the book off the device. I still believe it would a useful feature for people who are not comfortable exploring regexp (which is intimidating for those of us who are not programmers). Also, it is not "one stop shopping" for any device which is what I was hoping for.

This expression works in case anyone else needs it:
{title:| |: }{series}{series_index:>2s}


May I ask how you handle what is on your device if it is not hooked up? I have created a column and noted if I have sent the book over. After the book is read I place a checkmark in the read column and delete it from the reader. Is there an easier way? Am I missing something obvious that would be less time consuming?
