Is there a way to sort the titles that are not yet part of a collection? I have twelve different collections on my kindle. I know some of my books have not been put into a collection yet but can’t tell which books they are.

If you install the Kindle app on a tablet you can view collections on it, there is a collection called Uncollected for any book not in a collection.

If you have a Fire tablet, or an Android or iOS device, the Kindle app will show you Uncollected items. This assumes you are not side loading anything.

If you sort by collections in the library on your Kindle it will show books that are not in any collection after the actual collections.

But for this to work, you need to:
- ‘Star’ (‘download’) all of the collections
- view ALL (not just DOWNLOADED) books
- Ungroup Series (else they will still appear in grouped series even though they are in a collection)

And adding/removing gets slower and slower as the collections grow. The Kindle apps don’t have these issues, so it is an order of magnitude or two easier to use those, rather than trying to do it on a Kindle.

But even so, with a large library, organizing everything into collections is a lot of work and I use them sparingly.

Being able to mark books as ‘read’ eliminated the need for ‘unread’ collection, and Series grouping eliminated need to create series collections. If they follow up with Author grouping, and perhaps Category grouping, it could further reduce need to create collections manually.

This isn't much help, but it's easier to put books into Collections when you put them on the device. If you transfer maybe six at a time, it's not much bother to stick those into the relevant Collection.
