My wife and I share an amazon/kindle account but read very different things. We have many, many books between us and would like to set up our kindles so that we each only see what what want rather than the collections of the other. I don't think there's a way to do this formally yet, but have any of you other users found a way around this? What have you done to help with this sort of thing? Sorry if this has been asked before. I searched the discussions and didn't really see anything similar.

It all depends what Kindles you both have.

Ah. Then, unfortunately, no. I mean, you CAN each have whatever collections you each create, but they WILL sync across devices. This was the update that came with the 2nd gen PW. EVERYONE HATES IT and has told Amazon so.

If you create "Chick Lit", "Biographies", and "Sci-Fi", then your hubs creates "Mysteries", "Crime", and "Non-Fiction", you will BOTH get ALL of those collections.

It's horrible.
