lol, Wow, 35K books would keep me busy for a looong, long time. I'm more like average size, but way too many for me to handle individually, clicking 'on device' to download each book.

Yes, you've nailed it... the "Cover View" similar to Calibre's cover view is exactly my goal. In Moon+Reader Pro and FB Reader Premium that same mode of display seems to be called 'Shelf' or 'My Shelf', from what I can see.

I'd be perfectly thrilled I could figure out how to get any of those programs to display my whole Calibre library in 'Cover View', somehow. Its fine with me if any of those programs can only accomplish the Cover View of my Calibre library when connected via Wifi.... I work from home, so am always here.

I'm going to play with your instructions later, but I suspect that my problem is exactly what you've guessed... I'm trying to see 'Cover View' in CC when connected, which isn't doable, apparently. I'll definitely keep the app, as I do like to manage chunks of 5 to 50 books regularly, so hitting the individual 'on device' button to download each, so it can display cover view when disconnected, isn't a problem.

Thank you SO much for your help. Now at least I know that CC might be a great handling app, but isn't my ideal browsing app, and can move toward a Moon+Reader or FB Reader solution from here. So far, I haven't been able to get either Moon+Reader Pro or FB Reader Premium to display the my Dropbox/Calibre library in Cover View, either. I seem to only be able to manage a file tree, but I'll keep looking for a solution.
