I would like to see Amazon implement the ability to:
1. See which device a book was sent to
2. The ability to sort into collections on the Books page. (Less tedious on a PC!)
3. The ability to sort items into an archive / read area.
4. The ability to batch select books and decide where to send them. (New device = TEDIOUS!)

Any others?

Yes

All those

4 is doubtful because Amazon might receive too many phone calls from people who've either sent more than their kindle could hold or more than it can index at one time

1. It doesn't matter as they all in the cloud.
2. Not sure what you mean
3. You can already in collections.
4. Nice idea but will never be implemented I think. You don't know how much space your device has. It's the opposite of multi-delete and I can't see that ever happening either. The new cloud collections make what books to download very easy.

1: I'm not sure how much value that would be but, for those of us who have many family Kindles registered to one account it would be useful to know which devices and apps a book was on at any one if the license limit has been reached.

2: Now that we have Cloud Collections it's relatively easy to do this on some devices but it wouldn't surprise me to see this happen in the not too distant future.

3: That's already possible on the Devices which is, in my opinion, the most suitable method given that it would be a different list on each device.

4: I wouldn't need that, personally, as I don't think I've ever wanted to delete more than 3 items at any one time, other than personal documents and even then it hasn't taken me very long to accomplish it. I think the dangers of people getting the procedure wrong outweigh the benefits.

If I could have one thing it would be to be able to add a Series name and volume number to books in the Cloud. As I already have a cataloguing system that notes those details it's not something that matters greatly to me.

Oh and please wouldn't it be wonderful to not get all those darn dictionaries and user manuals shoved at us every bloomin' update or new device. Deleting them makes me weep. The page has to refresh every time.

Either we should just be able to opt out, auto email for example, or a user preference window - Do you wish to recieve dictionaries? Select language/s. And all user manuals stored clearly on line for download or online perusal.

This is biting me hard at the mo.: one replacement PW2, one new one for husband's christmas prezzie, the update. if I see a chinese user guide again.....

On the other hand, personally, I'm finding the new collections update is working well for me.

This is just a personal preference, but I wish they would do away with the percentage bar that is displayed on the screen. I'd just like to be able to press a button if I wanted to know how much I've read of a book. I know you can do this and have the location displayed, and I'd be quite happy if that was the only function available. I just can't stop myself from checking that percentage bar all the time, I'd like to be able to choose whether it's displayed or not.

Ok rant over! :)

That's already been implemented on the Paperwhite 1. Hopefully it will make its way onto other devices.

Denis Powell says:
In the US Amazon has now blocked the deletion of dictionaries. I leave mine alone and they soon disappear from the first page of Manage Your Kindle, although I don't spend much time on MYK anyway.

If I want to send a book from there to a particular device, or delete a book, I use the search option to find it.

I didn't know that, thanks Denis! I've been debating about getting a paperwhite for ages, but couldn't really justify it, as I have a kindle that works perfectly already. This changes everything though, because not only would I get a 'front' light, but that dreaded percentage bar would be gone as well! I'm sure I'd have a much more pleasurable reading experience without looking at it all the time, and knowing this, may have just swayed my decision. Thanks again :)

Edited to add front light instead of back light! :)

Denis Powell says:
Don't forget it's the 1st generation Paperwhite, not the current one, that has the option and you get no indication of where you are in the book when that's set; no percentage, no reading time, no location number. It's only a couple of taps to get them back, of course, but it's nice, sometimes, to have a page with nothing else on it other than the text of the book.

front light, not back light

and I can confirm that I cannot delete any dictionary added after November 2011 - there are bold red letters saying Free Dictionary in front of all of them and no delete option in the Actions menu

so, I'd quit complaining about the user guides in case they add those to the do not delete list

and, it's slowly being rolled out, so I expect y'all will be seeing it here soon

Ooops sorry! My mistake, thanks for pointing it out!

Elaine4Wales says:
That would suit me fine Denis, I would really appreciate a page with just text and nothing else :)

If you go to the product page Kindle Paperwhite 3G (5th generation), 6" High Resolution Display (212 ppi) with Built-in Light, Free 3G + Wi-Fi you can see how it looks. I can't find one for the non-3G version so I'm guessing Amazon has sold out but they may be available elsewhere.

That would be perfect Denis, no annoying percentage bar in sight! Thanks for that :)
