Is there a way to use the Manage My Content and Devices to create a list for Excel or Word or Access to use for sharing information about the books I have?

No, but there are a couple of other options.

You can go over to the Shelfari.com website and sign in with your Amazon account, import your Kindle books, then export the list.

You could also go to your Media Library page here - http://amazon.com/yml - click the "Your Collection" tab at the top, then click the print icon. Just don't try to manage your Kindle books from that page, or things can get screwy.

Do you mean so you can lend them? Most books aren't lendable, so it would be a waste of time to create a list of all your books.

You can go to http://www.amazon.com/yml and there is an option to print in the upper right of the page. I've never done it, though, so I can't speak to it's usefulness.

I have printed it before when I had about 100 books. It prints the covers and does not let me grab it before it goes to the printer. It is really a mess with my 2400 books now.

This is not for lending. I am adding my twin adult daughters to my account, so that my sailor daughter can choose the books to download onto her new paper white before deployment. My other daughter wants to chat with her about the books her sister selects.

Shelfari... That will be a good thing to try.

YML is a mess. I printed my library seven years ago. But, I have gone from 100 to 2400 books since then.

You can switch that to List View.

doesn't switch the print version, though

Hmmn. I see that.

I was able to make it work (printing the list view) by using the right-click-Print option, rather than the on-screen Print icon. The only problem there being that one has to scroll down to reveal each new grouping of books.

It would obviously take more time & effort to get a list-view print out, but it would work.

I use a website called Fickfact.com to keep track of the books I read. I read a lot of series, this website puts the books in order that they should be read in and also lets you know when a new book is being released. So far its the best i've found.

No 'k'. :0)

it's also possible to copy paste and then copy paste special unformatted text of the result using the same method

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 27, 2014 5:49:57 AM PDT
Yes! And the bonus there would be that you could save each re-formatted page to your pc. Again, kind of a pain, but it would work.

actually, I think it's easier and faster using either shelfari or calibre where you can export a file that goes into a spreadsheet

I agree; the print/save-per-page would only be for the Shelfari/Calibre resistant. :0)

ETA: Or Shelfari/Calibre incapable, such as myself.

or those who don't care to create a list like myself

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 27, 2014 7:43:27 AM PDT
Oh, me neither. I just wade through my Archive like a giant Library sale.

If you put your books into Cloud Collections, people who share your account can see the collections, by genre, for instance, on their kindles ( Paperwhites 1 or 2 with software update)or tablet apps.

I have my books in collections on my Fire HDX. My original Fire does not support collections. I also have a Kindle Keyboard, but that does not support Cloud Collections. I have too many books for the Paper whites. And reading on the cloud does not support collections.

Does the basic Kindle support cloud collections?

What do you mean you have too many books for the Paperwhite? You don't have to put them all on at one time. I know I sure don't. I usually keep under 50 on mine at one time.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 27, 2014 9:53:37 AM PDT
No, the Basic does not. If you really have that many books, you really need to consider an auxiliary method.

If you read the whole thread, I have a daughter being deployed, on a ship, 6+ months, occasional access to internet, limited space for dtb, so I am buying her a paper white to go with the laptop and tablet and whatever else she has stuffed into her tiny space. So, I am trying to get her to select some books from my account and work with her sister about buying some other books to read when she is not on duty.

My other method is to have her download to the laptop and sideload to the Paper White. I think all the books will fit on the laptop. But heck, I think it will be the girls job to figure this out.

They will say, mom you are obsessing again.

To every one:
I used Shelfari and got all the books onto a list.

thank you for your help!!! Now, the obsessed mom is going to send the list and instructions to the lieutenant to figure her own reading. She is a Lieutenant, not a five-year old---damn mom, they do grow up.

"...download to the laptop and sideload to the Paper White..."

That would certainly work.
