- Should it just be a new sorting mode? (So each folder on the SD-card is a shelf.) The sorting order could easily be stored in the local metadata.db file of the folder.
How to do the sorting on the DR?
- Maybe like the 'delete mode', but then tapping on the left/upper part would move it one position up and right/lower one position down?
- How to handle page-boudaries (if the books in a folder do not fit onto one screen)?

This would be a 'simple' implementation, not deviating too much from the current concepts of the firmware. Any other ideas?

Bookshelf-view, excellent idea!

But, if I add five new books and have to move each around like that, probably up from the bottom to the desired location, that would be too tedious. I don't move my real books around by moving a book one position at at time: I just drop them on the shelf where I want them. Is a drag-and-drop movement possible, or would that be way to far out from what the ctb currently supports?

It is not out of ctb capabilities, but more out of my programming capabilities
