I want a way to mark the book, preferably on the cover, that would tell me that the book was read and what I rated it. Then as I wander through my shelves I could easily pick a book I hadn't read or one that I really loved. Collections are nice, too. But even in the collection this kind of marking would be nice.

Happiness is a fully charged Kindle Fire.

bfree2read: While there currently no way to do what you would like to do, which I agree would be a nice feature, Amazon does offer this. It will allow you to mark your titles as read, to be read or reading and to rate the book 1 to 5 stars. You can later look at them by displaying one of the above categories. It's not collections but it is a helpful to keep track of your titles. Glenn

Edit: There is also a search function.

Amen to that! Glenn

Thanks, Glenn- I didn't know about that feature in Amazon of classifying your books into categories. I just checked out the link you provided. Great info! Joanne

Avid: Your welcome. I think at least for now it's better than nothing and definitely better than a sharp stick in the eye. Enjoy! Glenn

This has helped so much more than I had hoped. Yes, I was looking for one that I could read books on more than anything. I was hoping the KF would have let me read outdoors. I really don't need to play games I just do it because I am bored. Will get the KF for my son so he can play games and the 3G for myself.

I'm glad it helped.

Now you have to choose between the Kindle Keyboard 3G, or the Kindle Touch 3G, and I can't help you there. My 3G is about 3 years old and still going strong, so I've never tried out the Touch varieties.

Maybe someone in one of the other Amazon threads could help you with the difference between the models.

Oh, wait, one thing I think is different that might help: my keyboard 3G has buttons on the sides that you depress to go forward or backward. I believe the Touch is the same as the KF, in that you have to touch the screen to move the pages. I find that I like the buttons better, but that's just me.

Please have an update that adds page numbers. It bothers me to only know how much percent you are in the book. Change it like any normal book PLEASE

Hello M. Jaap: This forum is made up of fellow Kindle Fire users. If you'd like to voice your opinion to Amazon directly, tap on the gear symbol at the top right of your Kindle Fire, tap "More" and Help & Feedback to leave your concerns. Joanne

Hi, Glenn- I got worried for a moment. I thought you wanted me to get rid of my post above. Thank you for teaching me about new symbols I can use on the Kindle Fire. I was unaware until about 45 minutes ago. I finally mastered the comma as of a week ago; now I can explore the array of symbols. Thank you and Namaste, Joanne

I'll agree with that. It would be very helpful to have the page number.

Hello all. Just came back to leave this for Kindle Fire readers and glad I did. I guess while I was voting yes I put Glenn on IGnore. Now wouldn't that have been sad if I didn't catch it.
WOOL-a wildly popular, dystopian sci-fi novel-was purchased for feature-film development by director Ridley Scott and 20th Century Fox, after a fierce Hollywood bidding war.
Okay, so why is this "intriguing"?Because Wool wasn't issued by a major publisher. Author Hugh Howey released it himself, as a series of cheap, self-published ebooks.
Howey is understandably giddy. "A few months ago," he writes, "I worked part time in the university bookstore, dusting the shelves and tackling shoplifters to pay the bills." But now? "Without a single dime spent in advertising, a short story I wrote and didn't even work to promote climbed to the top of the Amazon charts. It drew the attention of Hollywood. It landed me an agent and half a dozen foreign book deals.

Avid: It's good to know I'm no longer "blacklisted" by you. See at times even I can be useful. I've read the "Wool" series and thoroughly enjoyed them. I could picture(no pun intended) them being made into a movie. Glenn

Re Video files on KF.
I have some TV and Movie files on my Mac that I want to transfer to the KF. What file format should they be to view on the KF?
