Amazon will be pushing out a firmware update sometime in April that will give all Kindle e-Readers the ability to sort by read and unread ebooks in the library. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 4 has already received the 5.11.1 update, but every single Kindle model after the Paperwhite 2 will receive this new feature sometime in the next few weeks. There is not many sorting options for ebooks in the library menu, so this is good news for people who have a copious amount of ebooks on their device.
The new sorting system was first announced when Amazon unveiled the new entry level Kindle with an E Ink Carta display and a frontlight. The company stated ““Now, when you finish a book, it will automatically be marked as read in your library and synced across your reading devices including Kindle, Fire tablet, and the free Kindle apps for iOS and Android. With just a few taps, you can filter to see which books you’ve read and which you haven’t, so organizing your library has never been easier.
Will you use this feature on the Kindle or the official Kindle mobile apps?
