I would like to create categories by name on my Fire. Such as 'Books Read' Books Unread, etc... can anyone help me figure out how to do it?

Sorry this function is not available on the Kindle Fire. Maybe on the next version...

Diane, unfortunately, there is no way to do that on the Fire. If you go to the Apps Store, there are apps for the Fire that "make collections" but I have never seen one that I would consider useful.

You might go look and read the reviews to see if there is something you think will work for you.

The best I have been able to do is to put one genre in favourites, leave another on the carousel and sort the other books on the shelves by author or title.

Ok, Amazon is crazy, they have categories available on my Touch but on my more expensive fire I can not organize my books? I have way way way to many books to just find them by author or name. Hate to say it but this is the kind of bad planing on Amazons part that is going to make some other device (perhaps the nook) the ultimate winner.

So return it and get a wonderful Nook that must do everything you want.

Oh please. Yes - DO go use Nook. I'm certain that that one feature will be worth it.
