New user .. LOVING it! couple of questions

Hi all /wave

Have had my 360 for about a week now, WOW its fantastic!

I upgraded from a ebookwise 1150, and I cannt belive the difference. Keeping in mind I really enjoyed the 1150, this is soo far ahead of it, its unbeliveable!

I have a couple of quesitons tho:

First off, im using Calibre to consolidate my book collection etc. Just started using this also ROFL. My question is, on the 360, is there anyway to view the synopis from the book selection screen? That way you can see a little blurb about the book when you are deciding what to read next.

The other is, does anyone know of a RPG adventure game / application simular to Rogue / Angband etc (roguelike game) for the 360 ? Just to give a small break from reading once in a while ROFL.

Thanks tons =)

Hi

/me waves back

There is an information button in the menu (select the book, hold button for menu) where you can see all the info on the book.

As for the Rpg game, that's a great idea. Anyone willing to create such a game?

Sorry for the delay in responding, real life and all etc.

This isnt quite what i was looking for.

Yes, the information option has stats on the book, but thats what they are stats.

Not the "comment" notes on a book ( brief summation of what its about ).

Specifically, was wondering if there was a way to "transfer" the comments that are in Calibre and have them appear in a info panel on the 360, so you could see a descripition of the story before you opened it and started to read it.

Something like reading the back cover of a paper back to see what the book is about etc.

Hello Askyn,
A perfect feature I really would like it too, or if it was possible to add it as a textual Note, but then with a good link/menu-option from the book-list, so it can easily be open from the book-list.

good idea

That is a good idea, like a way to read the back of the book on your 360 before opening the file.

Though I do notice that many of the new ebooks have a synopsis page in the front of the book.

Have you tried using Calibre's catalog function?
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71143

You can create a single epub file that will have descriptions for all your books.

I also like flicking through book descriptions, and I used to use a plain text file for it which I had to update by hand, until I found the catalog feature.

A built in feature on the 360 would be nicer, though.
