    Making a New Folder on My Kindle

    I was told that I could create an additional folder on my Kindle Fire. I want to create a folder that is for "READ BOOKS". I have so many books that I am wading through that it would be very nice to drop the books into another folder. How do I do this?

    Using the USB connection
    Allow Windows Explorer to auto-open, then create the new folder, name it how you see fit.
    Either cut/paste or drag/drop the book title over as desired.

    Does that not work? I ask because its a simple Windows 101 drill (but I've not done it).

    I recommend installing the free app ES File Explorer. (A more current version is available in the Android market that can be side-loaded). Not only is it an excellent file manager to do what you ask, it also has the capability to transfer files from your Fire, as well as other Android devices, to/from your desktop or laptop via your WLAN (wireless network). Very simple. No cables needed.

    One BIG disadvantage of Kindle Fire

    I want to start out saying that I DO love my Kindle Fire BUT not being able to create folders REALLY suck!!! I have way too many apps and different types of books just to have them scattered hodgepodge. Good grief my other Kindle has the ability to create folders you'd think they allow you to do it on the Fire. If I had known you couldn't I might have thought twice about getting one. I wonder if you could on the Nook tablet or color? Maybe I should have bought one of those instead.

    If you have a large library and your priority is reading, perhaps you would be happier with a dedicated ereader,
    such as the Kindle Touch, where you can create and maintain collections.

    (Oops -- I see you already have one. Perhaps keep less books on the Fire?)

    Could always download another launcher to organize things with.

    Would something like "AppBox" work as a substitute for folders?
