My problem with the Kindle Back button

i'm reading "the age of turbulence," which is really good btw. However, I've noticed that I occasionally hit the back button. i was viewing the table of contents so it takes me back there....but then there is no way to get back to where i was reading!!!! without specifically typing in the location. very irritating. of course if the previous thing u were looking at was the home page...then the bac kbutton takes u there and u can back to your location in the book by clicking the link to the book.

however, if the previous thing u were looking at was something like the table of contents....then accidently hitting back gets u completely lost.

anyone solve this? i think my solution for now is to always have the last thing i viewed be the home. this way i can find my place. but this seems kind of pathetic.

I changed how I hold it, and didn't hit the back button so much.

I now hold my Kindle in my right hand, with my thumb about a third of the way up the screen. I use my forefinger to turn pages.

go to your nearest home center and buy some plastic drawer pulls then super glue them on the side of your Kindle
