Sony book sort
I bought a PRS-505 and downloaded a lot of classics from their E-book store. The books are sorted by first name, not last name. This must be some sort of ghastly joke by Sony. Is there any way to fix it?

Nope, that's just Sony's way! Sorry!

You can create collections which will make it easier to find books. I have my books sorted into about 5 categories.

I was also extremely annoyed by the "sorting by first name" thing. I also noticed that if the book was given a name like "Dickens, Charles" it would put it under D for Dickens. But if I had another book by same author that was listed as "Charles Dickens," it would put it under C for Charles. Whichever word is first is the word that is used to put it into order. I saw someone mention on here once that it was probably because Japanese names were in a different order. I'm not sure how true that is, but it sort of makes sense.

The really odd thing is that Sony's ebook format (LRF/LRX) has a field whose most obvious use would be to serve as a sort key for author names... and Sony's firmware ignores it! Go figure.
