Random Blank Book that forces restart?

Okay, so I was trying to find a clue on how to fix my Kobo and decided that it was best to just ask myself.

So for a little while I've had a random blank book on the top of the list in the library. It has no title, no image, and says Unknown Author. When I hold down on it to delete like I can do others (or edit, etc.) it doesn't get the little drop down with my options. Just turns black. Upon touching it, it freezes the kobo for a few moments and then forces it to restart.

I don't see any anomalies in the Adobe Digital Editions books (they're all there.) nor the kobo purchased books. I clicked the little restart on the back in an attempt to fix it and it did nothing except bring back the starter little books given by kobo, leaving me the cruddy little blank force restart book.

Any solutions?

This sounds to me like a corrupted database on the Touch

As far as I know the only option is to do a factory reset of the Touch and reload all content onto it.

I broke down and did a factory reset. It did fix it, even if I lost all my achievements and book notations. Ah well, I'm glad it's fixed and I didn't lose any files on my programs so it just re-downloaded them all. C'est la vie!
