Blackberry Playbook Kobo App

I got a lovely deal on the Blackberry Playbook the day before the Kobo Vox hit the stores. I ended up buying one of both.

The Playbook is a pretty cool piece of hardware which, hopefully, Blackberry will be able to evolve to its potential (particularly beginning in Feb when OS 2 comes out).

Broadly, the reading software is similar on both devices but I am confused about certain aspects of the Playbook Kobo app. I am running vers 1.3.1. Can anyone help?

1. How do you actually close a book (ie remove the bookmark once a title has been opened)?

2. If I click and hold a cover, I get the option "remove from library". If I do this, how do I get it back and does this affect visibility on any other device?

3. How do I change the order of the display of books? It seems to be alphabetical by author.

I have one of each now too! I went in to look at the Acer A10 8GB but for the same $299 I got the Playbook 32GB. The Vox seems to rotate pages faster in Kobo reader but video is smoother on the Playbook. I have a Blackberry 9700 for work so it is nice to read my email on the 7" screen over the Bridge. Still figuring out the Playbook but seems good though oddly it uses up 1GB of RAM very fast.

Not sure this is the right sub-forum, since its about the Kobo software/app, but pokee is right you do have a lot of devices

Thanks for everyone's thoughts. Can anyone help me with these questions?

1. How do you actually close a book (ie remove the bookmark once a title has been opened)?

2. If I click and hold a cover, I get the option "remove from library". If I do this, how do I get it back and does this affect visibility on any other device?

3. How do I change the order of the display of books? It seems to be alphabetical by author. <-- I have figured out that in Library view, I can drag a top menu down to do this.
