Now that I had subdivided some of those (and moved all the magazine back issues onto the iPad so I can read them during school breaks) I am much happier. I now have about 15 collections: by source, and then a few author collections for those where there are a lot of books. So, other Kindle owners, how many collections for you?
I think collections should fit on one screen, also. But I have a couple collections I don't wish to appear on the first screen, and I find the second screen useful for adding books waiting to be put in a collection (especially now that I can add them wirelessly through Calibre). This creates a problem. I refused to put Palin's autobiography in Nonfiction, because she paints herself as an intellectual, so it had to go in Political and Fiction.

Here are my collections on my first page:

Fiction (for modern fiction)
NonFiction
Currently Reading
Already Read
Anthologies
Mystery and Suspense
Contemporary Romance
Political
Historical Romance
Samples

Second page is Archived Items (500), books waiting to be put in collections, newspaper feeds (which come automatically from Calibre) and a collection not to be named.
