bookshelf on kindle

Hi,
is it possible to create bookshelves on Kindle to organize books instead of having going from page to page

Not yet - Amazon has promised some sort of content management solution for "early in 2010".

If you do a search on "Folders for Kindle" you'll find some threads with work-arounds that folk are currently using.

you are right, was too fast to post and did read various posts.
However, didn't like any of the work-arounds and now what to rephrase my question:

Had anybody did/think of some kind of a hack?
How about this one:

- is it possible to create internal HTML page with cascading menus pointing to different folders on the file system as booksheves and under them books as an link?

Calibre now has a catalog feature which builds a browseable version of your library.

It might be. If you have the skilz to program that, you should talk to Kovid to see if that might be a feature to add to Calibre. Or you could run up an app for the promised App Store (I know, that's already trademarked) and sell it. If it works, you could make a little lucre from the idea.

AFAIK (I implemented the catalog feature in calibre) it's not possible to directly hyperlink from within a book to another book. Apparently that's only possible in Java from the shell. However, within the catalog, you can type the name of a book, search My Items, displaying a link to the book, which you can then open. So it's possible to open another book with a couple of steps.

Here's a link to a posting in the Calibre forum describing the catalog feature.
