Yes it's a kindle fire.

Whelp I counted (174), 1 audio book sample, 5 or 6 apps mostly small games like sudoku. No movies 1 album on pandora.

Do you think that app that was supposed to organize the books would do that? Maybe I'll see if I can get some tech help in the morning. Got to get up early ground is supposed to freeze tonight I want to take advantage of the lack of mud and get some fence fixed.

After reading this post more carefully I'm presuming your Kindle is a Kindle Fire. In that case look for movies, music, apps, etc. that you don't need on the device. They take up a lot more room than ebooks do.

LJA - I have over 1000 books on my Kindle so 100 should not max yours out. Unless they are very large books. Or as King Al says you have some audio books on there. Or music or photos. Basically anything that is not an eBook.

King Al says:
Are any of them audiobooks? One audiobook can take as much space as several hundred ebooks.

A hundred should not max out your kindle.

What kind do you have and what are the symptoms?
Is it one book that would nt go to the kindle?
If so, what is the title?

About a hundred on the Kindle. ActuallyI keep the TBR there because there isn't a way to organize them, tried a app that was the best I could find but I couldn't work it.

My closet houses books not only for me but ones I use to fill care packages for deployed troops. I had to put them on shelves like a mini library so when I get a request I'm not searching through boxes.

A lot of assumptions in that.

We actually don't know how many are on the device or if the problems are represtative of the device being full or something else is causing the problem.

Not enough information to go on for a conclusion if any sort.

I can understand wanting to have books on your Kindle, been there done that. I did a factory reset on my KK that had way too many books. They were no longer orderly, it was taking forever to move and needing to be charged constantly. It is like a new machine. Zipping along happy to have all that weight off.

How many is a lot of TBR?

If you feel that a storage mechanism -- your closet, your desk drawers, the trunk of your car, your attic, your computer's hard drive, your Kindle's flash storage -- is only being properly utilized when it is so full it can hold no more, then you need to recognize that this is a psychological problem. It get's some people on TV, but that's a weak justification.

In most of these cases, the filling-to-capacity compulsion damages the storage mechanism's ability to function properly. Realize that, and you can gain perspective on why a different strategy might be worth developing.

The books I have on my Kindle are my TBR pile (hay upgraded from a walk in closet), Don't smoke, drink very little and I have a schedual that often has me sitting waiting on this or that with my daughter. I find it easier to have the books downloaded to my device ready to be read than running to the nearest McDonalds to download a book.

I know what I want but can't find one. I want one with a zipper like I have with my old fire but one that I don't have to remove the kindle from. My Kindle rides with me to work and I deliver mail on a rural route so dust is bad sometimes, hay and stuff in the barn. And I want it fairly padded to protect from getting knocked around.

Most of the ones I removed are old classics that I want to reread so I don't have to try and remember the title. I should be able to download them again after I'm through some of my TBR books.

What's the purpose of having a device that can hold that many books if you don't have that many books!

Well you're both there's no reason in the world to have that many books on your device. It serves no real purpose accept for some childish bragging rights and provide you with a false sense of accomplishment.

I would feel the same way if I had to remove any books. I have the Kindle 2, and my son bought me the Kindle Fire HD for christmas. I am like you, I really haven't used it much because I don't have a cover yet! I have to order one soon.

Ordered two new books. A lot TBR on the Kindle but I'm into a series. Anyway they wern't showing in the cloud or kindle dispite managing them to download. I have a new Kindle Fire HD and when prompted downloaded fine to it but I wan't them on the old Kindle because I haven't got a cover for the new one yet (for those who think "just read them on the new one, dummy"), and the thing goes everywhere with me, even to the barn. I have a horse that only gets a hour's romp time comming back from a injury. I stay there while he is out in case of random acts of stupid.

Anyway I had to remove several books from the old Kindle before these would load. So sad it's like my best friend let me down LOL
