Browsing library on Kobo Aura HD

Hi

I've just bought a Kobo Aura HD and have a question about browsing through my library. I have a library that is spread out over 27 pages, how do I browse through that library without having to type in each page number?

On the Kobo Mini there's a bar at the bottom of the screen where you can scroll through, or press a next page or previous page button.
The Aura HD doesn't have that, the only way I can see to browse my library that way is to tap where it says what page you're on and then type in the new page number.
Is there another way of doing it?

Thanks.

Thank you! Silly me, I never thought of trying that because I thought it would bring up the menu for the book. On the Mini, pressing anywhere near the edge of the screen like that opened up the book as if you wanted to start reading it.

Thanks again.

In the library, if you touch near the top of the screen, a search box appears. Just searching on "t" will bring up up both titles and authors starting with "t." The more search letters, the list narrows.

Thanks, the software is quite a bit different than the Mini, I'll soon get the hang of it once I get down to actually reading a book on it. I've just been installing my books on it whilst it charges up and having a little play around with it.

A vertical swipe up or down in the library also changes pages.

Personally, I run my finger along bottom edge of the screen against the bezel. That reduces the chance of accidentally opening something and means my big hands don't block the screen.

i wish that kobo would add the a-z line along the right side of the screen so that you can jump right to that letter.
