I don't use my Kindle much (mostly just for travel). I noticed that most of my archived books "left" my Kindle and went to my Kindle account on Amazon. I thought the point of being in an archive was to have them available to me on my Kindle. It looks like I have to go through my account purchases with Amazon to put them back on my Kindle. Is this true?? How do I prevent this from happening again?? Actually, what I would really like to do is put the ones I didn't really care for much back in my account and leave the ones I would like to read again in the Kindle archive. Long, rambling, dumb question!! Any thoughts??

The archive showing on your device is really just a list of the books in your account which you can access on your computer through page.

Just select the books you want on your kindle on that page and under actions send to kindle.

you can make "collections" which are folders. Put those books in a collection. By doing that, they will not be in the way of all your other books.

The archives is a list of books that are on your Amazon account that are NOT currently on your Kindle. If you want them all on your Kindle download them and then create some collections to organize them.

When all your books are on your Kindle your archive list will be empty.
