Question re Covers

If you purchase a book from the Sony Connect Store, can you change the cover they provide or are you stuck with their cover, as it is DRM protected? Some of their covers are "hideous!"

Thanks for any info.

AFAIK you're stuck with the cover the publisher gave you.

Yep, can't edit any metadata in LRX files.

Well, that's disappointing, if not expected. The thing is, when I purchased these books, I was very new to the reader and I should have purchased them in .lit form and converted. The Sony Connect Store often has the same books that are available in .lit but are cheaper.

Oh well. I'll know better next time.

Thanks anyway.

It is funny you mention covers, I bought Isaac Asimov's Foundation from the Connect store when I first got my 500 and the cover in that title is from Natural History by Justina Robson though thankfully the text is Foundation. That always bothered me because it is such a simple thing to be wrong, yet it makes the whole operation look amateurish, obviously no one bothers to proof these books.
