#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.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both.
