How to Organize Kindle Books in Files

Updated March 23, 2017

Organising your Kindle books into files is a simple way to organise your Kindle library into categories -- a process that can make it easier for you to find the books you are looking for without browsing through your entire digital library. You can create and organise files directly on your Kindle device into as many categories as you choose.

  1. Press the "menu" button when your Kindle is on the home screen.

  2. Select "Create a Collection" from the drop-down menu that appears on your Kindle screen.

  3. Type in a name for your collection. You can organise your files by author, genre or any other system that makes sense for you and your Kindle library.

  4. Use the five-way controller on your Kindle to select "save." You've saved your collection and can now begin adding books.

  5. Select "Add/Remove Items" from the Collection menu to add books to your created file. To access the Collection menu, click the "menu" button on your Kindle when you are in the collection of your choice.

  6. Use your five-way controller to add as many books as you want to the specified collection. Press the button in the centre of the five-way controller on each book you wish to add. A check mark will appear next to your selections.

  7. Press the "Done" button at the bottom of your Kindle's screen to add all of your selections to the newly created file.

  8. Follow the steps above to create additional files for your Kindle books. If you change your mind about a collection title, you can choose to rename or delete it from the Collection menu.
