Pet Peeve -hoping for a fix in a future firmware version

I have both the WiFi and the Touch and lately I'm using the WiFi more and more and recommending the Touch less and less.

I'm disappointed that the Touch doesn't have the Finished and % read designations beside books like the WiFi does.
A seemingly small thing but I found I missed those intensely when I bought the Touch. I'm hoping they'll come back in a future firmware release.
(Of course, if the Touch were to have the ability to arrange books into Collections that would be fantastic too.)

The Shortlist can only be used for one thing so either I use it for books I've finished or for those I'm reading. Using it for both becomes confusing when I'm reading a series of books with similar names (eg Into the Fire, Into the Storm, Into the Night, etc.) With the "% read" and "Finished" labels it would be easier to see which I'm currently reading or have completed.

I guess I have a bad memory for book titles because I often find myself opening a book and then realising I've read it and I've done that more than once with the same book. It mostly happens when I'm reading everything I can find by one particular author.

(Also the Home page books change everytime I upload new content which I find useless.)

Am I alone or does anyone else miss those labels?

Great ideas. You should post this in the sticky thread (Kobo Touch future firmware feature request thread) as well.
