    With Calibre you can edit all the metadata and add covers. So if you're softrooted (I know you're not) you can see the sideloaded covers too. I use it all the time to get all my Authors and Titles right...you can also update genres, etc too and again only useful with softrooted library to search by genres and such.

    You don't have to soft root your Nook to take advantage of the using Calibre to edit the meta data, or tags, of your eBooks. The advantage of using Calibre is you can make sure all the titles, authors, genres, covers, and what-not are just how you like them. You then side-load, or sync, using Calibre.

    Calibre is also good for helping keep your eBooks organized so all you have to do to find the particular eBook you're looking for in the Calibre library is just type, say, Melanie in the search field and there it is.

    You can still update all the metadata but I think only Author and Title is usable in the regular Nook Library. I'm just saying with the softroot Library you can search by genre and see the covers. And who knows you might be able to do more in the Nook Library, I just haven't used it in a while.
    Calibre rocks either way. You can also convert between different formats, etc.

    yeah that wasn't meant to talk you into softrooting. I kind of answer questions in a way will help others that search for the same problem.

    yeah I agree...we need to start making some tutorials. I'm getting emails now (since I threw my email out in a couple of posts here) and I'm always explaining the same thing over and over which I dont mind but it could be better to have it in one place. We use Wiki pages at work so everyone can contribute and update one tutorial per problem.
