What have you found to be the best ways to organize them? I know there are several options to sort by - such as author, title, etc.

Do you group things in collections?

How do you keep read vs. unread items, etc.

Any advice and thoughts on this subject are most welcome.

My kindle books are in alphabetical order.

I delete a book on the kindle after I read it. When I buy a book I load it on my computer first and then copy it to the kindle. In doing that, I still have the book on the computer when I delete it on the kindle.

I get several new books each day that are free. To remember what books I have recently downloaded but have not read I go to my amazon account to refresh my memory and to pick the next one to read.

Mine are organized in collections such as fiction, non-fiction, spirituality, mystery, historical fiction, history, humour, classics, etc. I do one-click ordering and send it directly to my kindle. I don't have a problem remembering which I've read and which ones I haven't.

Is there an app for this that I could download directly to my brain?

I don't have a huge number on mine, but very early I decided to keep it simple. I created collections for fiction and nonfiction, maybe one or two others (like one for samples), then I move a book I've read into the appropriate collection. Anything that is not in a collection is something I know I haven't read yet, but they take up less space than that giant stack on the night stand.

I remove books I've read so I don't have a huge amount on my Kindle. I have three collections - one for personal documents, one for samples, and one for unread books (which amount to about 50). Book(s) I'm currently reading aren't in a collection so they're on the home page for easy access. I don't like clutter.
