Kobo has collections, not shelves.

But Kobo renamed shelves to the correct name of collections. So shelves no longer exist and it's called collections.

The first sentence says collections used to be called shelves.
Quote:
In firmware version 2.0.0, Kobo added shelves. Books could be added to one or more shelves and the shelves viewed in the same way as the main library list. In a later firmware, Kobo renamed "Shelves" to "Collections".
When I got my H2O, it was on some version 3 firmware and shelves didn't exist.

ok i only read the wiki 1st sentence. What you correctly said is in the 2nd sentence. I still think the wiki could benefit from a rewrite- why even mention it , if shelves are now gone ?

@stumped as had been said on other occasions, the wiki is public and editable by anyone. Feel free to correct it

Ok, so it's not all in the first sentence. My mistake. But it's all in the first line. Besides, if you've been using any version 3 or 4 firmware, you'd have seen Collections and not seen Shelves.

But for those of us who have used a Kobo ereader for a bit longer, we remember when shelves were introduced. It made sense like shelves in your physical library. Collections tend to be larger and involved multiple shelves in a physical library.

Sony and Amazon both called it Collections. Kobo was the different one. But I am glad they changed it to what it should have been from the start.

The way I look at a shelf is that you can only have one book on one shelf and that doesn't work.
