Question Reader with good organisation?

Hi, I used to have a Sony e-reader before it gave up the ghost and since then I have been using my tablet and Aldiko/Moon-Reader. However the glare is bugging me especially outside and after a while my eyes can start to hurt so time to get a new reader.

I have a large collection - around 6000 books. They are all in calibre with metadata (genre tags, collection groupings, and series data) all set up. What I would like is a reader that can keep a lot of that organisation but first and foremost the series order data.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a reader with great organisation? I was looking at a kindle but since it doesn't seem to do series order I'm try to look for something else.

If you were happy with the Sony, then you should look at the Kobo devices. These have collections that can be managed automatically from calibre. And they support series information - displayed in lists, sorting the lists and when searching for books.

Try calibre companion app if it works for you then get an android based eink reader.

I just use a Calibre metadata plugboard to get books displayed in series order. Works absolutely fine for me.
