Red face Features I really would like to see...

I often download ebooks in bulk and add them to collections later. Ideally, I would like to add them to collections right after I've read them--from the device itself rather than by editing collections on my computer. That way I can easy move books from my "To-Read" list to my "Have-Read" list and add relevant genres, etc., so that I can find the story again later (I can't remember titles for the life of me). Gosh, a feature like that would make life so much easier!

Also, it would be great if it were possible to filter stories by more than one collection. For example, I could ask for all stories in the "Fantasy" genre that are on my "For a Rainy Day" list. Glory!

Finally, I'm absolutely terrible at deciphering the pronunciation guides used by dictionaries. Would it really be that hard to embed sound clips into the dictionary? That's what I love about online dictionaries. Usually when I look something up it's because I want to know how to pronounce it anyway.

I don't know much about the new Sony readers. Any chance that features like these might exist? What features would you guys love to see in the future?

You can manage collections on the device in the new Readers.

And using Calibre can allow you to put various books in mulitple collection, based on tags.

What I wold really like is sub-collections. So I could do a collection of an author, and under that author, I could make sub-collections of each of the series that author writes.

I'd say this is called "folders" and you can expect to have it on prs 600 in a couple of weeks (PRS+).

Regarding most of the other features mentioned, it's doable, but rather not worth the effort.

If you are doing custom firmware, add a way to mark a book as Read on the Reader.

With long series, I can't remember where I left off.

And of course, a way to unmark them (like when you finish the series).
