    Extreme lag in cover-browser library view (many sideloaded books)

      Maybe someone can finally help me out with this issue. I've been scouring the web looking for help but it doesn't seem anyone else is have the same issue as me.


      This is what's happening:

      I'm currently deployed, so I brought a large number of ebooks on my SD card to keep me occupied. The problem I've having is that when digging through my library in the cover view, it starts lagging very badly once I get up towards the 230th page of the cover view. Anything between the first page and page 234 of the cover browser loads very quickly, as expected. But anything past that 234th page, and it takes a good 10-15 seconds to load a page, and trying to skim by holding down the hard button results in the browser freezing/force closing.


      If I use the title-only option for the library browser, I can quickly skim my entire library, no matter what page.


      I know some of you are thinking "Why doesn't he just use the title-only option all the time then?" And I understand your point, it's just that I'd really like to be able to use my cover browser (this many books and I can't read their descriptions at all; sometimes it's hard to decide what book to read based simply on it's title, and it's easier to identify sequels with the aid of a cover).

      I've tried removing some of the books on the 233rd/234th/235th pages, to see if one of them was causing the problem. I've also tried cutting a large chunk of my library from page 200 to page 300, to see if that would speed things up. So far, nothing I've tried has worked, so I've come here to ask if anyone else has had experience with this issue, or if they know how to remedy it. I appreciate any help.
