I am too isolated where I live to be able to do other than to read in digital. I think of my library left in France with nostalgia.
I don't keep that many books on my Forma which is my reading device. The Clara HD is more of my have fun with the ereader device.

Back when I had ~2000 books in my library and started checking and fixing them, it took about 6 months to finish the task. Now I do much smaller batches as I add new books so it's not as onerous a task.

As others have mentioned, some formats can be problematic. It might help if you give us a list of the 11 formats you have, and people can give advice for which ones won't work well (or at all) and the best way to convert to a better format.

For finding which "firmware", I switched mine to French to find what its called to make it easier for you:
Paramètres→Informations techniques→(Informations sur le logiciel) Version:

ie mine Kobo Glo is currently on 4.19.14123 (bf36b8c11a, 10/12/2019). The important bit is 4.19.14123.

You should upgrade it to the 4.21.x firmware. The new series feature is very useful.

I assume you mean 4.21.x., but it's not really relevant to this discussion.

Yes, I meant 4.21.x. It's a suggestion given that you are on 4.19. 4.19 didn't last long before 4.20 came out. And 4.20 did make some improvements.

Yes, a suggestion that is not really relevant given that I am not the OP who is the one looking for help and I didn't suggest the OP update to 4.19. It was an example of what to look for so the OP would know.
