Keeps crashing; cannot use it at all

The Kindle app is super important for me because I prefer to buy a lot of my postgraduate coursework books on Kindle and make notes, highlight important passages etc.

While the features seem great, there are pretty much pointless because this app on my macbook has been crashing a few seconds after I open it every single time.

Note: I have now updated my Mac OS, removed the Kindle app and am reinstalling it in the hope that I will be able to use it. I will submit an updated feedback a few weeks from today.

Cloud Collection Please!!!

I would’ve rated it far higher if I could sync collections from my Kindle to the Mac.
As of now, I have a dump of books that looks like that one desk in the office where people dump their stuff (trash?).
I can’t take the pain of (lovingly!) organising my books again.

Please add this feature.
