I know this is a bit anal of me, but I really don't like how some of the books I've purchased appear on my Kindle devices. The names are great when you're searching for products on Amazon, but they're unwieldy and annoying when navigating your device.

Consider the following:

enter image description here

The top book is simply called:


but the title on my device is:

It: Film tie-in edition of Stephen King's IT

Pretty annoying.

Or the others:

4.50 from Paddington

Appears as:

4.50 from Paddington (Miss Marple) (Miss Marple Series Book 8)


Praise of Folly

Appears as:

Praise of Folly [with Biographical Introduction]

There are countless such examples in my collection (this is just the top five from my Amazon account at the moment).

How can I rename these book to be their ACTUAL titles?
