Collections for Kindle PW?

Hi there,

I just got a new Kindle Paperwhite, I've been searching through this forum, but I've been unable to find an answer on how to get started making sure my ebooks are sorted.

I have around 1000 e-books from Gutenberg and Baens, all as mobi and epub (I own a Sony 950 too). Due to the number of books, I prefer using collections named after the author, that I can then click on and then see all the individual books.

Is there a way to create collections in Calibre where the collections gets transferred to my device?

You'd need to Jailbreak the PW (and the other things that go along with it) and install the Collections Manager which can be used in conjunction with the Kindle Collections Plug-In.

Thanks for the advice.

It's a shame it can't be done directly through Calibre, it almost seems as E-book makers are going out of their way to make things hard for us.

Although I already own two sony devices, I really wanted to give the paperwhite screen a try.
I'll try the jail break method and cross my fingers I don't break my Kindle
