Books imported as articles

Hi all!
Quick question: When I send the books from my calibre library to my Kindle Fire, many of them are imported as 'articles' rather than books. Is this a problem that can be fixed in calibre? Is it an issue of conversion?

Any help is greatly appreciated! And sorry if this question has been answered before - I'm new here!

Thanks,
Alex

First time I have heard this one.
How are you sending (USB, Mail...)?

Might be a Fire quirk. The K4NT works fine.

Have you updated the Firmware? There was just a new release (for other issues).
