Adding book covers with sony connect reader

Is there a way to use the sony connect reader to add covers to the books, or to change the covers of the books. I've downloaded some of the classics from the store and I do not like the generic sony covers they threw on them. I would like to download the covers and change them to the ones that I like.

Additionaly I've got some .doc files that I would like it to convert, and want to add the book covers to those as well.

Thanks
Joe

No, in short. First, the Sony Connect s/w doesn't have any 'editing' functionality & second, even the 'Classics' are DRM'ed.

Alternatives are to have a look in the E-Books lists here, as there's a good chance there's be alternative (better?) conversions here.

As for the .DOC conversions, take a look at libprs500 (a GUI app that can both convert files & do PC/Reader transfers/management) or BookDesigner (conversion app)

Thanks for that. I know that libprs500 can't do doc conversions, but the conversions with the reader are crap. I finally figured out how to really use BookDesigner to make things a little easier
