I second the need for better shelf management. With that in mind, I would also like to suggest a way to help prevent lost shelving on books that are sideloaded onto an SD card, maybe by putting an index on the SD card. Right now I only have 2 shelves: currently reading and read. I would love to do some in depth shelving, but because of the complexity of the current system and the fear of losing shelving on sideloaded books, I don't see me doing it any time soon.
Yup, the sort is a massive oversight; I thought it was one of the few things about the N1E that B&N nearly nailed. Hopefully they'll be responsive and help us out here, but people have been asking for this to get fixed since the N2E came out...
Then again, they did create a feedback forum, so who knows?
Good grief, yes. I just spent FIFTEEN minutes shelving the FIVE books I just bought. It should not take that long!!! After 2 years with my N1E, I'm about ready to hurl this NST across the room.
