Sorting & Organising books on Reader

Hi all,

I got my PRS-505 about a month ago, and I love it! I'm using Calibre to transfer books to the reader, and it does a great job of organising my books.

Once they're on the reader, though, they're not as organised. I know you can see all books sorted alphabetically, but can you have them sorted within categories? Currently if I go to a category, they seem to be listed in the order in which I added them.

Also, is there any way to mark a book as read? Currently I just set a bookmark on the last page once I've read the book, but it would be nice to see it on the main book list.

And then my final question - is there a way to find all books that don't belong to a category? Either a particular category (eg all books not in the "read" category), or any category at all (eg. books that were transferred using the Adobe digital editions software, and thus don't have a category).

Thanks!

Categories organisations: Not as such, but if you set them as a Series in Calibre, they'll get ordered in a category corresponding to that series.

Mark as read: No, although you can just delete the book from the reader.

No-category: No!
