How to Open a Book on Your Kindle Fire

Ah, the pleasure to be had in opening up a new book, awaiting the adventures or knowledge it has to impart with anticipation! Opening your first e-book on your Kindle Fire is likely to bring you a similar sort of pleasure.

To open a book from the Home screen, tap Books to open the Books library. Locate the book you want to read (swipe upward if you need to reveal more books in the list) and simply tap it. If the book has not been downloaded to your Kindle Fire, it begins to download and takes only seconds to complete.

If you’ve never begun to read the book, it opens on its title page. If you’ve read part of the book, it opens automatically to the last page you read. This last read page is bookmarked in Cloud by Amazon when you stop reading, so no matter what device you use to read it — your Kindle Fire, computer, or smartphone, for example — you go to the last read page immediately.

You can also open a publication from Favorites or the Carousel.
