I love my kindle, I really do.
So many books in one tiny package.
Plus, of course, the kindle user's guide.
Which I have mostly ignored since reading the part about how to download the books.
Every now and again, after finishing whatever book I've been reading, I'll go back to the user's guide and read another chapter of it.
Sometimes it's relevant, sometimes not.
Last night I read how to make "collections" with my books.
I could choose to have a romance collection, a comedy collection, a murder mystery collection, simply by selecting "create a new collection" from the menu choices and typing in a title for it.
I've chosen instead to create collections based on either story characters or authors.
For instance, the author Lee Child writes about a character named Jack Reacher, so I've titled one collection "Jack Reacher", now I have to go through the long, long process of finding each Jack Reacher story (24 of them) and adding it to the collection.
But once that is done, I'll be able to find them just by going to the "collections" heading and scrolling through those.
Another collection is titled Stephanie Plum and this will contain all the stories by Janet Evanovich.
Including the few that aren't based on Stephanie Plum, Bounty Hunter.
About 50% of the authors I currently have books from, have series of tales based on a certain character and finding the next book by scrolling through my kindle based on title or author takes a fair amount of time.
Having these in a collections section will make it easier.
Once I've done the character series books, any other stories I have will be in a collection titled by the author.
Stories where I have only one book by an author can go into a "one-off" collection.
As I download new character stories I can just add them immediately to the appropriate collection.
