Меня зовут Ромас , я пенсионер , живу в Литве . Последние годы пользовался NOOK , сейчас приобрел Kindle Paperwhite 10th и столкнулся с одним ребусом - создавая коллекцию из книг , которые пересылал с компъютера , обнаружил , что 998 книг - Kindl на этом ограничивает коллекцию ? Это так или я что-то не так делаю ? Повторил еще раз - результат тот же . Посоветуйте новичку :Благодарность:

My name is Romas, I am a pensioner, I live in Lithuania. In recent years I used NOOK, now I bought Kindle Paperwhite 10th and faced one rebus - while creating a collection from books that I sent from a computer, I found that 998 books - Kindl limits the collection on this? Is this so or am I doing something wrong? I repeated it again - the result is the same. Advise a beginner: Thanks:

There does seem to be a limit of about 1000 books per collection.

I believe the limitation is only on Kindle devices. The Kindle apps can show more.

I cannot be certain (I don’t have any collections nearly this large to check any more) but I think you can still add/remove individual books from a collection, you just cannot list all of the books in a collection on your Kindle if it has more than 1000 books in it.

Also performance in adding/removing on Kindle is pretty bad once you get above several hundred books in it (unless they have fixed this in the recent updates). It can take a minute or more.

Having a collection this large seems a bit excessive to me. The typical application of collections is to group books into smaller similar themed books or series. I'm not sure what the purpose of applying it to that many books would be unless you had literally tens of thousands of books and extremely broad categories that need to be categorized. I'm unsure if a 8gb kindle would hold that many books. I suppose if you had a 32gb kindle, this would apply, but the real world need seems pretty narrow for this use case. Seems like just doing a search for a book/author would be easier.

Anyways, this is just a comment and not helpful to the issue, of course. As someone else mentioned above, after doing some googling myself, it looks like the limit for a collection appears to be around 1000 books.

Спасибо за информацию . У меня Kindle 32 GB , предпочитаю библиотеку , а это 20-25 тысяч книг , держать под рукой . Так как с коллекциями ничего не выходит , сделал себе списки авторов по отдельним коллекциям и нужную книгу найду из списка авторов нужной коллекции .

"Thanks for the information . I have a Kindle 32 GB, I prefer a library, and these are 20-25 thousand books to keep at hand. Since nothing comes out with collections, I made lists of authors for separate collections and I will find the right book from the list of authors of the required collection."
