When I buy a Kindle book it would be nice if one of the selections for downloading was:
Download to all my devices
I know I can go to Manage my Kindle and download the book again, but it is inconvenient. Also perhaps Manage my Kindle could show which of my devices my books were downloaded to.

I just wish there was some way to organize my Kindle books. I buy enough that this has become a real problem and has me thinking I may need to make a different choice in the future.

I used to be a huge Amazon fan, even an ambassador. But I haven't written them any love letters lately. I feel they aren't so committed to providing a great customer experience as they used to be.

I don't know if this will help you out enough, but I have my Kindle books in various folders; so I can organize them by category. I have a "classics" folder- for Dante's Inferno, for example and I have a "lists" folder- for 1001 Facts that will Scare You & You Might be a Zombie and Other Facts... It's a little annoying to get the books in the folders, but once it's done, it's a little easier to find different titles. I can advise you how to do this if you'd like. Sorry if I wasted your time with this reply. :)

From the main menu, where your list of books show, click your "menu" button & select "create new collection". Then you can title the newly created folder (classics, true crime, etc.). Click "save". You'll be directed back to the main menu which should now show the new folder underlined. Click into the folder. It'll show "click to add items to folder"; once you click that, it'll show your books in a list & you can simply select the ones you want in that folder. If you make a boo-boo, you can always remove the item or delete the folder. This will take some time if you have a lot of books, but again, it's worth it.

Wow, I didn't even know I could do this. Thank you so much for the suggestion: it just made finding my books a lot easier.

Katherine S- I apologize, but I am not sure of the question you are asking. If you create a collection, you are essentially creating a brand new folder, so by moving a book into the folder it would no longer be on the main menu. Or are you referring to the fact that there would be many new folders on the main page now, rather than many book titles? Sorry if I just made a comment about nothing to which you are referring... Let me know.

You can make your own folders in the Kindle reader for PC, just click the + to the right of COLLECTION and make a New Collection.

In addition to putting a book in a collection, you can also also tell the Kindle how to list your books. I think you can list them by title, by author, by most recently used, or by collection. If you list by collection, then the names of collections come first then comes every book that isn't in a collection. So if you put most things into a collection, then you just have to select a collection, then select the book.

I am new to Kindle. I bought a Kindle Fire and I am completely lost. I bought it at Best Buy. They set up an Amazon account for me and ordered "Partners in Command" by Mark Perry. I received that book and finished it and want to order another but am having a problem doing it. Must I buy a Wi-Fi? I have no idea what that is or what networking is. As you can see, I am borderline illiterate with commputers or anything electronic. I think I have ordered three manuals. Don't know if the orders went through. My questions are:
1. Did my changes in my user id and password go through?
2. How do I browse through the Kindle library?
3 How do I order?.

I would love the instructions AND what folders you use.
