One gruesome aspect of buying Kindle eBooks is the obfuscation Amazon uses in the filenames. People wind up with this horror show:
How in the world is it ever possible to find a specific book in that mess? Amazon doesn’t want you to be able to, hence that.
But there’s an easy way to defeat this. Use the desktop (PC/Mac) program for Kindle. Then:
1) Open the book you want to locate as a file.
2) Make a Note in that book.
3) Close the book, quit the desktop program.
4) Open your desktop file explorer and Sort By Date. BAM:
The part of the book file that stores notes will pop to the top of the list, as shown highlighted here. You now have the book’s filename.
Then Sort By Name and find the .AZW file, which is the book itself:
There. Done. You can find any book you want this way, despite Amazon’s twitscreen speedbumping.
Remember to go back and delete the note if you intend to locate more than one book at a time, otherwise you’ll just confuse yourself.
