Does exactly the same thing from Library when I press the View button, and the select one of the 3 options - the option selected turns black, and the device sits there until the choice is pressed again, then it changes the view, and opens executes the second press on the book that is at the bottom right, opening it.
I trust others will report the same, and I hope that the Kobo Dev's will release 1.9.17 IMMEDIATELY with this fixed, as it is a major pain!
OH, and while you're at it, please add another option to the menu for the new new bar at the bottom of the home screen called HIDE, so one can turn it off. I have no use for it as many others and would like it gone.
The REAL Joe
I'm very sad to say that I have exactly the same problem. It is driving me insane as I can only open one book in my library - the book that is behind where the blacked out library section is on my home screen. Sadly that's not the book I want to read right now.
When I touch to open the library it just goes black and stays black until I press again (or until the Kobo goes to sleep 15 minutes later.) The second press opens the library and that book which I then close and go back to the home screen and press library which just goes black and doesn't do anything until I press a second time which opens the same book again.
I have the same problem with the "show all" option from the Shortlist. One touch just makes it go black and then the second touch shows my full shortlist but also opens the action box which is in the same place on the next screen.
I can't believe this has happened to me on Christmas day just before I go away for holidays. I upgraded my daughter's Kobo at the same time but luckily she doesn't seem to have the same problem.
It seems my easiest option is to remove almost all of my books so that I only have 6 books on my Kobo at a time -the 5 that show up on the home screen plus the one book that hides behind the library button - as these are the only books I can open.
I'm only going away for a few days so 6 books should be enough but one of my main reasons for having an ereader is so that I can take ALL my books with me.
