I've been looking for an answer to this question, but so far I haven't found anything. Is it possible to organize the books I have on my kindle fire under different headings (like genres)? I'm getting to the point where I've got too many to scroll through to find something in particular.
Oh, and if it's in the owner's manual, I have NO idea where that is!

With the Kindle Fire there's no built-in way to do that. I've read that there are apps in the app store that can help with that but I don't know what they are. I deal with this by just keeping my current book and a few possible next books on board.

owner's manual equivalent is under +More -> Help and Feedback

from what I understand about those apps, is that you can organize your books using them, but when you open one up from the app for the second time, it doesn't save your place in the book. Read the reviews, especially the one and two stars ones if you're even going to attempt to use one

myself, I also keep just unread books on my Fire

Susan, many of us use the free program, Calibre, to organize our books on our computer. Then we just move/download the books we want to read next to our devices. Calibre is fully customizable as in modify metadata (I add my notes after I've read the book in case I desire to read the book again), add special columns (I have a column for which device has the book downloaded to, which books I have read, etc), modify the tags (you won't believe what some authors consider tags), etc. Since I keep track of books for 3 people as well as having a library of well over 10,000 books (not all from Amazon), I needed a program that was flexible and I wouldn't lose the data if my device crashes.

You might try goodreads or shelfari. You would have to keep track on your pc and shelfari will even import your amazon purchases for you.
