I have bought many books but only a few showed up on my Kindle even though they are listed when I go to my account at Amazon. The Help app says go to "storage" but I can't find it. How do I correct this problem so that I can see the titles of all the books I have. Do I need to go in and delete some titles. I've already done that with the books I have finished. Thank you for your help. Marge

  • What kind of device are you using to view your ebooks? Oct 30, 2019 at 15:42
  • Is your device registered in your name? Have you verified that it has Internet access and can access the Kindle store? What kind of ebooks are you trying to see -- things you have purchased -- or things you have uploaded without purchasing? (Remember that uploaded ebooks are called Docs --- and you need to change the filter to view them. Oct 30, 2019 at 15:45

Go to Manage your content and devices and verify that these ebooks are listed. If you have uploaded content instead of purchasing them, I may have to change the dropdown from Books to Docs.

Piece of advice. Create collections to categorize your ebooks -- (History, Fiction, etc). When in collection view, you can see uploaded ebooks and purchased ebooks together.

On my android device, the kindle app lets me see all ebooks I have purchased and uploaded. If the cover image icon doesn't have a check, that means it exists only on the cloud, and you must download it separately for this device.
