Marvin:

Thanks for this very helpful response.

Do you, or does anyone else know if book search capability is possible on
the second-gen Stream?

Hi. You can't search the $vrdtb shelf. This can be done in the music shelf
but not in talking books. Right now I have 91 books in the talking books
shelf. Under $vrdtb I have folders with the letters of the alphabet. I
arrange my books by author. So, for example, my Stephen King books are in
the k folder. Of course each book has its own folder. 
Humanware Companion can't be use to populate the shelf this way, you have to
use the computer to do this. This is an example where good skills with
Windows Explorer pay off in a big way. Good luck.

I have some organized by topics such as psychology or religion and then
separate folders in each of those for individual books.  You would access
the different folders with the 2 & 8 keys and then use the 4 & 6 keys to
move among the items in the sub-folder.
