This really renders the collections "feature" pretty useless. I think I'm going to delete them in favor of a peppy device.
I think I'll continue to pick my books out with Calibre and then look up my books on the Kindle the old fashioned way...That's just way too much hassle for a feature with dubious utility on a regular basis.
