Applying the upgrade restarts the device, or do you mean that you had to do another reboot after that?

Right, so my collections in fact DID sync. It all showed up on my iPad no problem just now.

EDIT: And boom, deleted some from my Paperwhite, and they are gone from my iPad too. Nice!

Goodreads Integration only shows Read, Currently Reading and Want to Read shelves. Ugh, what about our custom shelves Mr. Amazon??

Mine restarted for the upgrade but I had to restart it again for the goodreads integration icon to show up.

Has anybody else had this happen....after I installed the update, restarted my Kindle, now all my Collections list books I had there before, they have the checkmark out to the right, then below that it lists other books that I must have previously had in that Collection, but they are grayed out. Can't delete them. My "Currently Reading" Collection has 62 books in it!! And when I long-tap on one of the grayed out ones, the only options I have are Add To Home, Add to Collection, Book Description.

Is it perhaps showing you books that you have in that same collection in the cloud?

I've never done any Collections in my Cloud. Yes, these are books that are in my Cloud, but I really would prefer they not show up at all on my Kindle.

The greyed out ones are those that are in the cloud. The checked ones are on your device.

Click on Add to Collection, and then just uncheck it (easiest way).

I knew the grayed out ones are on the Cloud. But until I did this update they never showed up on my Kindle. I can get rid of them by doing what you said, but what a pain.

What I understand is that collections were always backed up to Amazon. My Kindle Keyboard isn't registered at the moment, but the collections still showed up on my Paperwhite. So if you have multiple Kindles with different books in them, with the same collection name, that's why they're showing up.

Think it'd work better with the Cloud/On Device options like the main page has.

You are probably right, I still have my PW1 and a couple of Collections from it came over to the PW2. Thanks for your help!

Exactly what I was thinking! The easiest place to create and maintain collections is on a computer (PC or Mac) due to the speed and the physical keyboard, not to mention a nice big monitor.

I just noticed my PW2 never even updated to 5.4.1. It always has WiFi on, so I wonder why it never did that update? I will have to wait to manually install 5.4.2 as my main computer is a Mac and tethering the PW2 to a Mac is a PITA.

It sounds like the Cloud Collections are as effed up as the collections implemented on the Kindle for iOS sometime back. Over the years many of us explored various ways to sort our collections. So now we end up with a large number of duplicates, for example:
  • .History
  • -History
  • 1 History
  • History

Most of my collections stored in the Cloud are from long ago devices I no longer own. We need a better system. We need Amazon programmers who can actually effing read and understand what collections are and how to make them easily manageable!
