Any way to easily see ratings/reviews of all your kindle books

I just got my kindle but would love some easy way to look through my collection and see ratings/reviews. The only way I've seen so far is to actually open the review/ratings for each book, but I'd love to find something that's more like the results if I could search in amazon for the books I've bought.

Is there anythign like this on amazon, or anywhere else?

Thanks

I would love to be able to see ratings and reviews with the book on the Kindle! But the only way I know to access that information is to right-click on the book title when on the Home screen, then select "Book Description." You'll then be taken to the book's page on Amazon via wireless, where you can read the reviews.

One thing I have considered doing is creating my collections broken down by number of stars. For example, I'd create several categories for fiction like this:

* Fiction
** Fiction
*** Fiction
**** Fiction
***** Fiction

I haven't tried that, and I'm not sure if it would sort the collections correctly. For me, it's probably not worth bothering with since I only get books that are rated 4 stars and above anyway. Plus, ratings do change as new reviewers add their opinions.

I get they figure you look at the ratings BEFORE you buy the book.

The book listing is rather uninspiring. It's like a DOS menu from the 80s.

Yeah, I was expecting something better than a simple list with options of order by title or date ordered, etc.

I wish they'd at least put the book description in the kindle rather than on the net so it has to connect to wireless each time (and doesn't re-turn wireless off). It's almost like I need to make a document which has the summaries in it and find a book in there, then look it up in the kindle, which is a big waste of time.

I agree, book descriptions would be nice on the Kindle!

I have downloaded a lot of free books. It will be quite some time (if ever) until I get around to reading them, and it would be nice to at least have the book descriptions on the device to help me choose which to read next.

Your idea of making a document with the descriptions for all books is worth further consideration. At least the book information would be on the Kindle all together, and I could use Search to find what I'm looking for in that document. I could include genre and rating too. It would be quite an undertaking with all the books on my Kindle, but I may try it.
