Highlighting causing crashes

I seem to find that my Kindle crashes regularly when I highlight. However, not in all conditions.

When I have a large number of books in my Kindle (eg. 150 or more) and I have highlighting already in a couple of books, I find that my Kindle starts crashing regularly when I highlight.

I got onto Amazon support and did the factory reset. Then I start uploading books from my backup a few at a time until eventually I got to a stage where I started crashing again. I found that if I removed highlighting from previous books, my highlighting in the current book didn't crash as much. However, there were still crashes.

When I keep a smaller number of books in the Kindle (eg. under 10), my highlighting is perfect and never causes me a problem.

Has anyone found this kind of behaviour? I don't really need my entire collection on Kindle, but that's the way I was planning to work.

Regards
Caleb
