SIMPLE answer - correcting, author, title in library

Please help. I am no computer genius. Some books I have purchased when uploaded to the ereader library do not have the correct author (in fact all authors are indexed on first name what is that all about!) with the cygen book I can just alter the information so it reads correctly and sorts my books in a logical way. Is there anyway I can do this in the ereader? Maybe I've just missed it but I can't seems to see a way to edit this information.

For some stange reason the Sony ebook library sorts on the first name of the author, I'm not sure why. You can't change the book details or meta-data in the ebook library software.

Many 505 members here at MobileRead use Calibre (an ebook management programme) which will allow you to change the information on most books and sort using tags.

By the way, welcome to MobileRead!
