Can You Have More Than One Library?

I have a Kindle 2 and a Kindle Dx.... Can I have a separate library for each? Or do I just use tags to separate them?

You can do it either way, but I'd strongly recommend tags.

Flexibility. With tags, you can assign books to virtual libraries just by changing a tag, rather than having to move or copy files around. Also, that way a book could be in both virtual libraries, or either, or none, however you need it.

Tags are amazing. I use them, aside from identifying books by topic, etc., to mark those I've already processed (edited metadata, etc.), those that go to my Reader's main memory, those that go to the SD card, those that shouldn't go to the reader at all (big PDFs with squinty type), and so on.

When I was giving a friend an SD card full of good books to use with his new 505, I just went through and tagged all the ones I thought he'd like (and, of course, that I could legally give him), then loaded just that batch on the card. I've kept the tag, so that if other friends with similar interests (I have several) get ebook readers of their own, their instant libraries will be all ready to go.

In addition to Worldwalker's reasons, all of which I agree with, there are some new features coming that will use tags to define a group of books, but make that group look like a separate library. Running the content server allowing access to all books is another reason, as is speed and easier backup.
