So maybe you like keeping Collections on your Kindle, but you think it’s a pain to organize them on the device. Or perhaps you have two devices, and you like to keep the Collections in sync. Fortunately, it’s easy, and I’m going to show you how.
Note that if you have an older Kindle (Keyboard and earlier), you can use the Kindle Collections plugin from Calibre to easily organize your collections. And, unfortunately, neither the Fire nor Kindle apps support Collections. This is an E Ink device only feature.
The easiest way to set up Collections is on your computer, using the desktop Kindle app, which is the only app that supports Collections. Add all the books you want to the app and organize them.
As you’ll see, I now have seven books organized in collections.
Time to move to my Kindle Touch, where you’ll see that I’ve added several new books, none of which have been moved to Collections.
In Cloud view on your Kindle Touch or Paperwhite, open the menu and select “Import Collections.”
Select the Kindle you’ve done the organizing on, and you’ll get the following screen. Select “OK” and let it do it’s thing.
And voila! All my books are now organized in collections. It was easy and only took a couple of minutes.
