No that will not help. I don't think there is any way to do what you want, other than maybe sideloading all your books and maybe putting them in different folders? Folderes=pseudo shelves kind of.
I am trying to find out if this is possible and if so, how to accomplish it.
When I placed books onto shelves while on my 1st edition, they would be removed from the "master" library list of books and only be listed on the shelf.
This enabled me to easily see new purchases, as well as keeping the "master" list small.
When I place books on shelves on my Tablet, they still remain on the "master" library list. This list is 450 books. It is a pain to look for a book to place on a shelf, or to find a book not on a shelf.
When I contacted customer service their solution was to erase & un-register my tablet, then re-register it.
No way am I going to do that unless I know for sure it will help.
Does anyone know of a way to have the books listed only on the shelves when looking through the library on the Tablet?
When I first got my tablet, I was under the assumption that the shelves functioned like this too. It seemed the intuitive way to use them. Now, I don't really see the point of having shelves at all. It would just be a lot more work trying to update them all the time and the payback is just not worth it. I've resigned myself to going to the library page and sorting by author, but as you say, that's a real pain if you've got hundreds of books...
