Kindle Navigation: How to go Back to A Book's First PAge

For those who read books on your Kindle - and who doesn't?

To go to a book's first page:
Press the menu button. That's the one where you Turn Wireless Off or On (supposedly if you keep it turned off except while you're downloading books, it saves the battery), and can shop in the Kindle store.

On the MENU, you'll see:
Turn Wireless On
Shop In Kindle Store
Go To...

[If you're not in a book and you press the MENU button, there will be no "Go To..." choice. You have to be in a book for that option to appear.]

Choose "Go To" and you'll get another dialog box that will enable you to choose (using your 5 way controller) Cover, Table of Contents, Beginning, Location.

Toggle over to Beginning, press the 5-way controller down, and there ya go.

What's "location"? Note the numbers at the bottom right hand corner of a book. That's the "page number". If you want to skip ahead til nearly the end, say for example of a mystery book, just type in a number about 300 less than the last page, and that'll take you to near the end.)

Now, another couple of plus. ; )

I'm a writer of science fiction - check out my novella, The Coldest Equations: The Labyrinth Makers, and the novel, The Coldest Equations: The People Out There. Fun stuff!

And what blogs should you subscribe to?

Well, improve your mind, try my science blogs.

Go to the Kindle Store and search on:
Volcano Seven (sunken treasure)
Seaborn (oceanography)
Star Trek Report (space exploration)
Miniscule Guide to the American Civil War

or just do a search on Volcano Seven and you'll see *all* my blogs!
