Anyone find Reader Library 3.1 to be slower than ****?

I find that switching devices (say, going from my Library to the Reader), deleting books, etc, is INCREDIBLY slow since I upgraded to the Reader Library 3.1. Plus, if I view a book in the Reader, I then can't eject the Reader. It takes hitting the eject button twice (the first time it tells me a book is in use, even though I've "closed" it and gone back to the main view. The other versions didn't do that...

Does anyone know if there's any way to change the font in Reader Library? The font on the list of books is TEENSY TINY. My old eyes have a VERY hard time reading it! So NOT an upgrade to me...

Personally, I find Reader Library 3.1 works just fine on three different computers.

If you are having trouble with the small font with the list of books try switching to thumbnail view.

Thanks for the suggestion, but you can't see the full title/author in thumbnail view. Sigh. It seems like increasing the font size would be a simple thing to have...

I think the speed is the same for me. I just miss (strangely) the spinning arrows. I don't like how the screen keeps flickering while loading.

Sayhello
Yes, it became incredibly, unusably slow for me too when connected to my PRS-500, but worked OK with my newly-purchased PRS-600. Connectivity with the 500 became so bad that I planned to turn it in for a $75 rebate, until I read in another forum that the PRS-500 ePub upgrade allowed its connection as a removable USB device recognized by Internet Explorer.
