"Sort By Author" not sorting correctly within author's collection

I've noticed, that when in Sort By Author, the Kindle doesn't sort correctly all the titles under the same author.

For instance, if I have:

Dumas 1: Title
Dumas 2: Title
Dumas 3: Title

the Kindle might show it as:

Dumas 2: Title
Dumas 1: Title
Dumas 3: Title

I believe immediately after resorting it works, but after a while, if left to Sort By Author, it screws up the order.

Anyone else experiencing this?

I have the same problem, however I generally sort by title. I use Calibre and set the titles manually so that book series are stored together.

Also if you the books you are wanting sorted by author aren't in the proper order you can have the kindle device refresh your book list by changing what document types are shown, (switch between Books and/or All My Items) after changing you should notice that your books are now resorted alphabetically.

===== *update* =====
Whoops, I guess that's probably what you ment about resorting.
