My habit is to keep a few books I'm reading on the kindle. After a while I accumulate about 100 on the device, but that's about it. Occasionally, in a fit of enthusiasm I may load 5, 10 at a time, and it's a pain when the indexing hangs and I have to delete and load one at a time to see which the offending book is.

The software needs to monitor the process and if it determines the indexing on a book isn't progressing as expected to put it at the end of queue and move on. It should show you the book(s) being indexed and % completed and let you stop indexing on some books and maybe just let them go unindexed.
Here we are, almost a year later, and this one post succinctly states how things should be, yet not a single one of these improvements have been in multiple software upgrades. I know. Amazon doesn't read these forums, but Barty's suggestions are fairly obvious fixes. I've only got 300+ books, not the thousands some of you have. I bought a brand new Paperwhite gen 7, grabbed EVERYTHING, then have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why the thumbnails haven't loaded after two weeks. I didn't have this problem with my Paperwhite Gen 6. Thanks to Harry's discovery, I'm now s l o w l y downloading 10 books at a time.
