Do you make mental listicles for your books? Do you organize or categorize them physically, digitally, or at a social media site for readers? I do all of the above; as a lifelong bibliophile, frustrated librarian, and dedicated e-book reader for more than a dozen years, it’s pretty much a necessity. But what is the “best” way to organize them?
In part, the answer depends on how you use your Kindle, and how many e-books you own. If you are a casual Kindle user and read only on one device, create Kindle Collections to your heart’s content, then enjoy your e-books. Know that if you are “Home,” you can sort by the most recent additions to your device, alpha by author or title, or via Collection; sort one way today and another way tomorrow.
For those of you who are casual Kindle users but read across devices (say you use a Kindle and the Kindle app on your iPhone), opt for Kindle Cloud Collections, which allow you to access your Collections from the Cloud rather than bogging down your device with anything but e-books.
