There are a number of ways you could limit the number of thumbnails per page. One way would be to create a more complex hierarchy for each book i.e. with more levels: perhaps dividing the books into frontmatter, chapters, and back matter. You can see examples of books being divided in this way at www.ulukau.org.
This is a printed book that is divided into different sections using greenstone: covers, frontmatter, chapters and backmatter. The books contain text and images in pdf form instead of in your case images, but the concept is the same.
Another way would be to display perhaps 10 or 20 thumbnails at a time, but I can't immediately think of a way to do that without modifying some of the c++ code in greenstone.
This is a simple matter of adding a target="_blank" attribute to the html "a" tag, you will need to modify the relevant format statement to do this.
4. make that the metadata text (near bookshelf) contains the same link as the bookshelf ?You can do this by modifying the relevant format statement for your displayed hierarchy.
Hopefully this gives you a starting point.
