collection manager

I am a Kindle 3 owner, and we really need a collection manager to manage the books on the Kindle. I was wondering if you guys have a collection manager for your readers? Not sure if it is relavant or how it works for you guys, but we make collection folders, for me I name them with the authors name, then I put all the books by that author in that collection. So when I turn on my Kindle, it shows me all of my collections by author name. So if I want to read Men At Arms by Terry Pratchett, I find the Terry Pratchett collection and open it, and then find that book.

Putting new books that you have added to your Kindle, from within the Kindle, is a pain. What we need is a program that works on the computer and lets us manage the books on the Kindle. I just got off the chat line with an Amazon rep, he has a Kindle, but he has ten books on it. I have 2800. He doesn't have a clue what I am talking about when I say we need a way to manage the collections.

So how do you guys with a lot of books, manage them on your ereader, or is that a valid question?

Calibre (to manage my library on my Mac), plus calibre2opds (to build both an html catalog of my books, and also an OPDS catalog that gets copied onto my nook), plus Trook (a third-party app that reads OPDS catalogs on the nook).

Because of this combination, I have easy access over 1200 eBooks on my nook. I can drill down by Title, by Author, by Series, by Date Added (or by tag, if that's what I want). It's hierarchical within each of these, so choosing author gets me to a page with selections for Authors beginning with A, with B, with C... Likewise for series, title, etc.

Think of it as convenient card-catalog access to my entire library, on my nook. I haven't tried the Kindle's collections, so I can't compare directly. I can say, however, that it beats the pants off the collections feature on the Sony Readers. And I see no reason it wouldn't work equally well for much larger collections than mine.
