#Discussion Where Do All Your eBooks Go When Read?

I have a burning question that lingers in my mind. When you finish reading your ebooks on your Kindle, Kobo, whatever device you use, what do you do with those books when you have finished reading them?

Some of them you spend good money on. Some are gifts. Some are free that you happen to be lucky enough to find online. You get so excited getting them on your Kindle, but then you hit a number like I got on mine, and you ask yourself what the limit might be and are you quickly approaching it. Then the panic starts to set in.

My Kindle with 1059 items.


I would have so much more on here but when I finish reading them, I delete them. Yup, it's so easy to do. Best part is, just because you delete it from your device, does not take it from your library on Amazon. You can always login to your Kindle account and resend it to your device. As long as you do not permanently delete them from Amazon, they will always be there. I have permanently deleted some I do not wish to have anymore. It's not like I can send them onto someone else, so they become useless.

I have no idea if it is the same for Kobo or other reading devices.

So tell me, what do you do when you're done with the ebooks, and does anyone know the limit for Kindle??

  1. I use calibre to manage my ebooks as I use both kobo and kindle and depending on the format of the book I choose the device I am reading on. So I synchronize my books there.
    I do try to keep the number of books on my Kindle low as it slows down with to many books. I read about someone having 1400 books on a Kindle Keyboard. A keyboard has about 3 GB of memory for books.

  2. I have quite a few books on my Kindle, but not enough to warrant me removing them from my device yet. I usually put them in a "Read" collection, so that they're out of the way, but if I want to read them again, they're already there. Once I get too much on my device, I'll probably do what you do.

  3. My Kindle has a limit of 3000 books but I don't know if that includes Archived books, which is where I send the ones I've read.

  4. I have the same kindle that is pictured. When I finish reading an e-book I move it to a read folder (still on my kindle). So I have YA and YA-read for example. I like to be able to look at my read e-books from time to time. And I like to be able to easily see what I have read.

  5. I only like to keep titles I am reading and titles I have yet to read on my Kindle. Otherwise, I delete them from the device since they are always in the cloud, though I have even gone through and deleted titles from my Amazon account from time to time as well just because I'm too organized for my own good.

  6. Hi Freda.... I wondered this at one point also. I think deleting off of Kindle is the best but then just manage the Kindle library. I may start to delete from Kindle at the end of the year, the one's read and just keep TBR on and newly downloaded.

  7. I put my Read books in a Read folder on my Kindle. But you can always keep them on your Amazon cloud. I'd really love to have an easier way of sharing the books with others though.

  8. I used to have that same Kindle, but mine would fall over to a crawl after I got like 600 on it. I have since upgraded to a newer model, and I have the ability to have collections on the cloud, so I create collections for "Read" with the year and add the finished books to those, and then remove then from the device itself. I have gotten to where I only keep a dozen or two on the device itself. But I also rarely leave the house so I always have access to wifi.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
