Much nicer, IMHO, than Amazon's approach! And I've been a Kindle owner since the Kindle Keyboard (which is still my fave Kindle, even though I'm currently reading on the KPW).

Can you turn off the Italics in the bookshelf list view?

It comes with Calibre as standard. Look in the Device interface plugins list, and select customise plugin.

I haven't actually read any of my side loaded books, so I don't know if they will update the approximate remaining time like they do for kepubs.

Heck yes, without Calibre, my Kindles would be far less useful. I use a similar means to put the series info on my kindle books. And my Sony books. So knowing this can be done with Kobo is fantastic. Ya'll are making me want the Aura.
I ordered the Aura HD last Thursday, but still no shipping info yet

And I LOVE Calibre! I'm always amazed at the # of folks who just directly manage via Amazon and don't do any touchup (or backup) offline! But to each his/her own...

awesome, thanks MM! Does the percent complete only show on the cover page, or does it continue page to page, like on the KPW?

One of the things I miss the most from the Kindle Keyboard was the progress bar that would show up at the bottom of the page, and had tick marks to indicate chapters, so that you had a visual representation of how far to the next chapter...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This is probably one of the most CRITICAL aspect for me on buying a new e-reader. I read a ton of series and the only way I have been able to keep them organized on my Kindle is through the use of Calibre and more importantly, the Kindle Collections plug-in. Without this, I would have to look up the next book in the series.

By having some way to organize my content, specifically my series, this gives my hope beyond belief. I won't buy any device that doesn't organize based on the metadata which Calibre does a terrific job of keeping together.

MostlyMath - thank you for the pics. I think I am going to have to hit the submit button on the new AURA, it looks divine and now that I see it can handle organizing content, this gives me more of a reason. Anymore pics you can add will be greatly appreciated.

Re: the % read. On the Glo (fw 2.5) you can see % read in the left corner of the bottom status bar if you tap the centre of the screen whilst in a sideloaded epub. Does this not also work on the Aura?
