You're right!

That's fantastic (and makes me as a KTouch user really look forward to the 2.1.4 firmware rollout.) You can also add a book to a particular shelf when you're in the book if you select the wrench in the lower right menu.

Don't worry about that. I've been testing the 2.1.4 betas and have done a lot of factory resets lately. The first time I do when I read a book after the reset is to open that menu and go into the "Reader settings". I hadn't noticed the "Add to Shelf" option was there as well.

I bought one after a long search for a PRS-350 for a reasonable price AND reasonable condition ended with nothing.

I like it, tiny, but with a big enough bezel to actually hold it (gripe on my prs-T1 I just gave to my wife), light enough to hold with 2 fingers (unlike prs-300).

No downsides I care about.

Just need a slip cover now, wish they just included one...

As few of us had a bit of a discussion about the covers in the "other" mini thread. It appears that there are some 5.2" GPS covers that could work. Between mycurlylocks and me, we've ordered 4 different $5 ones and will report back on suitability when they arrive...

I will check that for sure, thanks!

I just don't get why they don't come with the neoprene slips like Sony used to include. I had a 505, 600 and 300 and they all came with covers that were peanuts for Sony to include and were all i ever wanted. Finding them 3rd party means getting one made for something else and it always seeming to be not quite right. Heck I would even pay an extra $5 for one which is a 20000% profit for what they likely pay for them.

Still love it though, 2 big improvements over my sony's, changing the weight of the font and BOOK SUMMARY'S, how can Sony still not allow for this?

Can you get the book summary with Kobo 2.0.5? I'll check my Touch (and my Mini next week )

I am running the latest update and its got summarys for all my sideloaded epubs.

I never understood why they didn't work on my Sony's, figured they knew something I didn't, but the Kobo has them all right there, awesome! I often end up with a bunch of books I have never heard of and need the summary to know which to read, having to google search what it's about seems silly...

Well, I can't explain you but it doesn't makes anything good (it's called lack of software ). I covered this creating a jacket and including it in my toc. Anyway, I think this is better.... if it keeps the format (I include <i> and <b>).

Just started using my Mini this past weekend and must say I'm totally in love with it.
The only thing I regret is that I do find the screen dark sometimes and I really wish
there was a mini glow I could purchase because I love the size of the mini, but I really
need a night lamp.

Can anyone explain to me how to change the books on your home screen?

The five books on your home screen are either a) the five books you last looked at (if you read a book completely it is removed from the home screen) b) the five books you last loaded on the device or c) some combination of the two.

If you open up a new book from your library it should replace one of the ones (the biggest) on your home screen. The other books will shuffle through the list, with the smallest one being replaced by the 4th book, etc.

Thanks ottdmt, but are books from overdrive included? I have been reading two titles from overdrive but only one appears on mybhomescreen. I don't know why the other three are there because I've never opened them.

Yes, books from overdrive should be included. The other three may be there because of the order you loaded the books onto the Mini (as I mentioned in b & c.) But if you've been reading both Overdrive books at once, both should show up on your home screen.

This does sound awesome. We have a new mini in the household and I don't see where these summaries are located, or accessed - where/how did you view them?

Firmware is 2.3.1, I think. Does anyone else use this feature?
