Alternative Display mode is possible?

I love koreader but at same time i hate it browser system. When i send a book to kobo with calibre it archive the book inside a folder so when start koreader i see the folder root, i hate this visualization. Generally i search by calibre series but this is very unsefull method: for search a book i need to do a lot of inutil passages. Is possible in any way to see directly the series on first page maybe with cover inside without see the orrible folder root?

Not really. Schemes are different. calibre uses a library/DB approach while in KOReader the file system is the database.

There are workarounds.

You can setup calibre to send books without a folder per author by replacing

Code:
{author_sort}/{title} - {authors}
with

Code:
{title} - {authors}
That, paired with using "connect to folder" instead of kobo device plugins, is what I'm using to manage my calibre library within one folder that KOReader can handle.

Is not the best method ma i think is my only solutions. I don't knew it is possible. Maybe also I do it. But if I use {author_series}/{title} - {authors} calibre it can create a folders series with inside the books.
If is not possible there are a easy method for extract rapidally from the subfolders to the koreader main folder book rapidally?

I think I didn't understand you but here is a graphical example:

1. on a Kobo hooked to a computer via USB I created a folder called ".books". It starts with a dot because I don't want to see these files in Nickel, just on KOReader.

2. Now on calibre I click "connect to a folder" and select my ".books" folder. It is empty. Then I send two test files (with proper name, author and series column filled in calibre).

3. Extract my kobo and start KOReader. Go to my created folder (I need to enable "show hidden files". Then, I long press the home icon and set that folder to default

4. On Filemanager options -> display mode -> other settings -> series I check the option "show series metadata in separate line"

5. On Filemanager options I check the option "Detailed list with cover images and metadata"


What's on that folder:

Code:
-rw-rw-r-- 1 pazos pazos   311 may 22 19:55  .driveinfo.calibre
-rw-rw-r-- 1 pazos pazos  3873 may 22 19:58  .metadata.calibre
-rw-rw-r-- 1 pazos pazos 21544 may 22 19:58 'test1 - author1.epub'
-rw-rw-r-- 1 pazos pazos 26383 may 22 19:58 'test2 - author2.epub'
And what I see in KOReader:

I try to set without folders with {title} - {authors}
But it doesn't work, did I still find the file inside the author folder.
Any Idea?

Since you rather dislike the KOReader browser, why not just read ePub without KOReader as you get a much better series management with Nickel? You can use RMSDK to read ePub and your eBook management will be more like what you want.

I'm sorry. I don't know much about calibre in that respect. The worst case scenario would be: remove all directories and resend your ebooks from calibre again.
