Kindle fire HD help needed

My wife and kids got me a KFHD 7in for Christmas and while im more inclined to use it as a tablet my wife wants me give it a honest try as an ereader as well.

Now on my K4NT I have all my 300+ books in collections(some by author, some by series name). I know loading them on the KFHD they show up under docs unless I use caliber to change it, how ever I want my collections back, there's no way I'll deal with scrolling through 300+ books to find the next one in a series(not a big hassle when a series is by one author, but a few of mine have 4+ authors writing the series).

There any way to do it by collections like my K4NT and with out having to go into ES File Explorer?

Some people use Calibre to sort collection... Maybe they pop in & explain How LOL Me I just line them up in the carosel.

You could also leave them in the Cloud & Only download the Series you are currently reading. IF we talking about ALL being Amazon Purchases that is AND IF we are then You can get a Free App that Will do Collections. It Looks like a Bookshelf!

That's not a bad idea. I''ll give the cloud idea a try.

I took a look at that page and noticed lots of one star reviews. Sudden stoppage of the app and reinstallation was necessary for many users.

There were 20 one star reviews versus 8 five star reviews.

Then in that case I would suggest you use the Favs to sort the order you want to read them in.

I ended up just dropping them into the docs folder in their organized glory and access them via es file explorer.

On a side note it was kinda nice being able to read in bed this morning without needing a light and risking my wife's fury. I'll have to borrow her laptop and see if I can find ways to fix the other 2 small annoyances I have.
