Hey Amazon, let's talk sorting.

Hey Amazon, how about giving us the option to choose ascending or descending for the current Recent, Title and Author categories and how about adding another to sort both ways by size too.

Hey Amazon. Still a great feature to add. You know you want to offer sorting.

I would really like the sorting for the recent. Like you said, ascending or descending. Now I have to go to the last page on the bottom right and then page backward. Its amazing the stuff I find sometimes to read going that way. But it would be easier if I could do that from the library page.
There haven't really been much changes on the sorting front in a long time with kindles. Mostly I am ok, but is stuff they could add.

You're welcome, I think. Hopefully Amazon will be along shortly and bring this feature.

Yes amazon,  how about doing some pre sorting, say like history, biography, cooking, photography, mystery, romance, western,   thriller, ect ect and have general collections with these and other categories, plus the ability to say create sub categories or collections within a larger general category,  say fiction having  mystery, romance, western, thriller,   and the ability to place books in pre determined collections also.

Customers have asked and asked for better sorting and sub-categories on our devices since the first Kindle in 2008.  Don't hold your breath!
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love
