I have been a huge reader for as long as I can remember. I can understand Henry Bemis from the Twilight Zone episode Time Enough at Last, one can never have enough books or time to read them.
I have always enjoyed my Kindles. A couple months ago I joined a Facebook Group called Free Kindle Books! and quickly my eBook collection jumped from hundreds to thousands of books. I have just under 9000 books at the moment.
I upgraded from my Paperwhite to an Oasis to have plenty of space to download my collection, I found that around the 6400th book the device wouldn’t download any more books. Since then I have really tried to streamline my collection. I removed over 3000 of the books so far.
I love Kindles but hate that there is not a real great way to segment my collection easily. I have been thinking about throwing together a small utility to at least manage the collection when I have the device connected to USB. The biggest thing to figure out is the data structure of the various .MOBI files and read the header information correctly.
I have been pseudo-coding some ideas for the utility. Hopefully I can throw together at least a good way to export a list of the books I own with Title and Author if nothing else.
