Dumb Kindle Touch Question

On the main home screen of the Kindle Touch there is a listing of books loaded on the device. When the listing is longer than one page, how does one get to the next page of the list? I haven't seen this shown in any of the online reviews or in the Kindle Touch user guide.

Thanks!

Read the User Guide more carefully - it's certainly in there!

You swipe the screen; a right to left swipe to go forward a page, left to right to go back a page. The same applies anywhere that a list is displayed (eg search results).

That's funny. I've always used vertical swiping on the homescreen and on lists but now I see that horizontal swiping works too.

Vertical swiping within a book moves a chapter at a time, hence the reason that I prefer to use horizontal swiping for single page movement.

It's all in the User Guide .

Thanks! I gave away a Kindle Touch for christmas, didn't have time to read the manual and now I got the same question from the recipient.

You can also jump to a given page number, or alphabet position by tapping the 'Page x of y' label to bring up a navigation dialog.
