Kindle Collections
Joe Fedewa / How-To Geek

The Kindle home screen is your portal to all of your eBooks. It can get a bit messy and annoying to navigate if you have a lot of books. The “Collections” feature is like folders for the home screen.

“Collections” allows you to group books into folders in your library. Instead of scrolling through a long home screen, you can go hunting more directly. It’s up to you to decide how you want to use the Collections. You could group books by author, genre, topic, etc.

It’s super easy to create Collections, but finding them after they’ve been created is a little less straightforward. We’ll show you how to create Collections and put them on your home screen.
