Yes you are. When you already have 1500 books, B&N requires that you enter them one at a time on their keyboard in order to get them into shelves. Other readers just ask you to set up folders with names and move the books in bulk. Additionally, B&N has an upper limit of 1275 and if you have books above that number the sorting system begins to fall apart. Three times, it lost the order of the books I was reading and just ordered them randomly.
Lastly, and worst, there is no searching within sideloaded books. So if I want to look at a book title starting with the word "The". I get to hit the right page turn button, Oh... about 125 times to get to those titles. ALL of these problems are solved in nookLibrary when I rooted.
The OP asked specifically about shelves and and extensive current collection so these B&N defects are right on point.
EDIT: the above poster has figured out how to move the titles in bulk, it appears. I and others would be grateful if we find out how this is done as this is the first I have heard of it.
Always something new here.
