Acquiring & Managing Kindle Content


If you have set up a household and enabled sharing, two new filtering options will appear
under Books:

My Books

Shared Books

To view just your books, select the My Books filter option. To view just the books that the
other adult in your household has shared, select the Shared Books filter option.

You can also filter items that you have stored in the Cloud.

To jump to a specific title or page, go to the Home screen and tap the page number control.
For example, 1/2 indicates you are on page 1 and have 2 pages of content on your Kindle.
When the dialog box displays, enter the page number you want to go to or the first letter of
the title or author (depending on your current sort option).

To view more information about an item and access a menu of applicable options, go to the
Home screen and press and hold on the item’s cover (or name if using list view). Menu
options vary, but may include Add to FreeTime Library, Add to Collection, Go To..&#46,
Search This Book, View Bookmarks, Remove from Device, View on Goodreads and Add to
Goodreads Shelf. Note that you must be signed in to Goodreads on your Kindle to see Add
to Goodreads Shelf.
