Has anyone else looked at the Manage Your Kindle page this morning? It has completely changed. First, it displays all the covers of all the books you've ever bought, apparently (it was still loading the last I looked). Everything else is now under "Settings". I hate that. I liked the old sidebar where you could select the subsection you wanted to access. I've already emailed my feedback to kindle-feedback@amazon.com, telling them I want it back the way it used to be.

Mine still shows the same way it always has.

Wish it didn't, I would love to see what you are talking about to see if would bother me. =)

ETA: Now that I can see the new setup, I really like it.

I love that you can delete more than one book at a time - wish they had that when I was deleting all my free eBooks when I was setting up a 2nd account just for the freebies.

I like seeing the pics of the books - sometimes the title isn't enough for me to remember which book is which & now I don't have to click anything to see the pic.

Mine hasn't changed either. Are you using a computer or a Fire? Which browser?

Safari on iPad, looks the same.

I saw the new MYK page this morning. My first thought was that I didn't like it. But I played with it a bit and I realized they've done this in response to all the complaints that you have to do everything a book at a time. The new format let's you select a number of books to delete or to send to a device, etc.

There's also a list option that makes it look more like it used to, although it's still a little different.

I do miss being able to right click to see the book in the store to remind myself what it was. That may still be there but I didn't find it if it is. That's a feature I use a lot.

I think they've done this fairly well.

I've got the new MYK showing. I like being able to see the covers, but would also like to be able to have a "list" view, as it makes getting through my books easier. I wish they hadn't gotten rid of the "see product page" and "view order" options, too.

One thing that they SHOULD have added was the ability to jump to certain things alphabetically. When you have hundreds or thousands of titles being able to jump to titles or authors beginning with certain letters would be a huge help. Having to jump page by page--or scroll through umpteen covers as we have to do now--to find an author or title is just ridiculous.

ETA: We can no longer type in a particular title or author name!

There has always been a search box. Is that no longer there?

I hate it too. Fortunately on Firefox, the 'old' version still displays. Other browsers show that AWFUL new display!

I lost 24 books (by count) on 1/8/2014 according to MYK. They don't know why. I do. They are screwing around with that feature!

I'm seeing the old page regardless of the browser (Firefox or Internet Explorer) I use. And I WANT to see the new display to see what everyone is complaining about! LOL!

Windows 7 is showing the new layout with FireFox.

No search that I can find.

MYK on Firefox 26.0 on Win XP still shows the old page, so far.

You can view it in list for by clicking the list icon in the upper right. It's that icon with 3 or 4 lines.

In Linux I'm showing the new layout, but there is a search bar.

I've seen a pic of it - what's the Cloud Library thing?

I am using Chrome, and it is showing the new MYK page.

It is similar to the new profile page. Amazon is obviously moving towards a new pinterest style, image-centric look.
