A way to mark new or unread books?

Is there a way to mark a book as unread or new? Preferably a way that can be sorted as well? I know I could add new to the metadata but then I would have to go back and change the metadata later. Anyway I was curious if there is a method that I am missing.

Thanks!

Amy

Use tags, while they cant be sorted, they can be searched.

I asked the very same thing some time ago. Quite a few MR-ers were kind to share their thoughts.

I just started facing this because I have more books than will fit on my device right now. So if it is read already, it has a tag for this, Bit if it is unread and NOT on the device, I just remove ALL the tags. Then when I get more space on the device, I look for the books with no tags and put those on.
