#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.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
