Ah, well, there's no easy way at the moment. The collection has fields for 
creation date and modified date, but the filter choices are a bit limited.

For example, if you wanted to see all the books you added in 2010, you can 
open up the filter dialog and use "Date Created" contains 2010. If you wanted 
all before 2011, it would get complicated with a regex, something like "Date 
Created" matches regexp (2008|2009|2010). Using months or days would get 
more complicated...

If you just want to sort entries, maybe, you can right-click on the column 
header and show the creation date field, then click that column to sort on 

In light of your question, adding a filter for "before" and "after" is 
probably a good idea, eh? :) I should get on that...
