Great app

I read constantly using this app & overall it is fantastic. Unlike some other reviewers I like the constant upgrades and new features - as one other reviewer said, if you don't like it don't use the feature! I like the new(ish) ability to make my own collections, but finding the time to organise my thousands (!Yes, I know...) of books is difficult...

There are a few things I would love to see made possible - 1) Viewing the synopsis or blurb without having to open the book; 2) the ability to view the books in my library by genre; and 3) the ability to cross reference the collections from the app to an actual kindle - my Mum has one, and it would be easier if she could access the collections I've already made, rather than having to make new ones...

But other than those, a great app - keep up the good work!

First time user.

After all these years hearing about Kindle & how good it was, but I never thought of using it, until I come across it by accident. Being from the old school of thought, “I need the book in my hands”, how wrong was I. Yes the feel of a book still excites me, that feeling you get at the end of the final chapter, when the bond of a book is drawing to a close for the last time. However, being able to access my current read from virtually anywhere has excited me also. Ok you don’t have this piece of art in your hands, but if you change your mindset a little and open up to this great technology you will still feel the love and that bond. It’s the story and what’s behind the story is really what you bonding with right. To have that deep connection with your story, it doesn’t really matter how you read it, as long as you still get what’s intended and for me, knowledge, expansion of ones mind, love and compassion of the world, the people and things in it. kindle gives me more opportunity than ever before to experience this this great value of life.

Love the app but want more features

I love the app but there are so many features I want which are not available. I want the ability to be able to mark books in a series and put in notes and reminders about when the next book in a series is due out. I also want the ability to easily see only unread books, and as a follow up edit the metadata to say that I have read (or have not read) a book, and ideally put the date I read it as well. I would also love a folder which automatically tracks my kindle unlimited so I know how many I have checked out, and what books I have checked out previously. It would also be great if there was something which highlighted a KU book I have read which is now on sale so I could decide if I wanted to buy it.

Lots more but that’s a start to moving this fabulous app from just a reader to a book managment system
