Getting to Know Your Kindle Paperwhite
In This Chapter
Tapping, swiping, and pinching
Becoming familiar with the icons
Touring the Home screen
Using Page Flip to navigate
Your Kindle Paperwhite has exactly one switch: the power switch on its lower edge. There are no buttons for turning pages or accessing menus, as found on earlier generations of Kindles. All navigation is done through the touchscreen, with finger gestures.
In this chapter, you begin by examining the different finger motions as well as where on the screen you use them. With just a few simple motions, you'll be able to open books and other content and quickly navigate from place to place on your Kindle Paperwhite.

In this section, you discover some techniques for navigation. If you're a seasoned Kindle Touch or previous generation Kindle Paperwhite owner, the following information should be familiar. However, if you're upgrading from a Kindle with buttons or are new to Kindle overall, the following primer will get you started.
