Collection Questions

I made my 1st collection for the King James Bible. It's broken into 9 different books. I named it Bible-KJV and put all 9 books in the folder. My question is this: Is it possible to be display just in that folder? The 9 books are showing up on my regular books library on the reader and when I delete them then they also are deleted from the Bible-KJV folder collection on the reader. The whole reason of making a folder is to eliminate them from the main menu. What am I doing wrong?

A collection isn't a folder. It's more like a playlist on an MP3 player. You can't not have them listed in the main book list.

Thanks for letting me know. I don't think Sony put a lot of thought into this. I'm disappointed that it does not work the way I thought it would. My 1st major disappointment with my reader, oh well! I still think my 505 is the bomb!

Folders are something I would certainly welcome. I know Bookeen mentioned they'd be adding it to the Cybook at some point. Haven't heard anything about Sony.

Just sort of ignore the main Library list and "live" out of Collections. That's what I've come around to doing but I agree it is a mental workaround.

Yep, that's what I do too.

I have a bunch of collections I use. I don't go to the main book list any longer. Collections work fine for me. A lot easier to find the content that I want.
