Although it has been rectified with a software update on some recent models, many Kindle owners are stuck without the ability to add ebooks to collections on their devise. The good news is that if you have a Gmail account associated with your Amazon account, I have an easy way to organize your ebooks.
Every time you make a purchase on Amazon, you are sent an email with details on your order. With the creation of a few labels, organizing your Kindle collection becomes fairly easy. I’ve kept my labels simple with Kindle, Kindle Archive, and Kindle Skipped, however you can get as creative as you like, with labels such as (genre), (author), fiction, nonfiction, etc. I’ve also made sure to prefix my labels with Kindle so the labels are grouped together and not lost among all the other labels.
Now, every time you make an ebook purchase and receive an email from Amazon, simply move the email to the folder (label) of your choice. Note that you have dropdown menus for labels and folders. I use the folder dropdown so the email is removed from my inbox.
To find an ebook, you’ll only need to go to the label on the left sidebar of your Gmail page. For my purposes, I created the Kindle Archive label to keep ebooks that I have finished reading and the Kindle Skipped label to keep books that I can come back to later (I have an extensive library and try to read in order of purchase, but sometimes skip to get to a juicier title.)
