FBreader: filter read/unread books

In the last weeks I tried several ebook reading software on my android phone and the one that seems to come closer to my needs is FBreader. There is one thing, however, that I am not able to do, namely to distinguish (and possibly sort and filter) between read and unread books. You can manually mark a book as read or unread, but this has no visible effect when you look at the list of your books. Am I doing something wrong?

A possible workaround is to define my own tags (e.g. 'completed', 'to read', 'reading') and manually apply them when changing the status of a book, but this is not completely satisfactory.

Thanks in advance.

I use FBreader to read my books, Calibre to manage my books, and Calibre Companion to browse and select books to read. In Calibre you can define your own fields and/but there are many extant fields to choose from (including read and not-read). You can sort by any fields you choose in Calibre Companion.
