Truncated Titles

I tried searching and do not see a definitive answer. Is there a way I can see the full titles for my books?

It seems very limited on the # of characters and I get very few titles of any length shown without cutting off half of it.

At Home, page down to the page where your book is located. Select the book by moving down the page till the selector underlines the title and the full title will appear after a moment. Go right and the full title and some other metadata will appear.

thanks. some do, some dont. Is there any way to show them without highlighting one at a time? pretty tedious when you consider this is pretty much the entire purpose of a reader.

Switch to landscape and more of the title will be shown (but then you are in landscape orientation). Also you can go to the description page to see more of the title (and cover image). The latter requires moving to the item however. Finally, if it is something from Amazon, you can go to the Kindle Store description (when wireless is on).

On Kindle Touch touch and hold to see more of the title (and cover image).
